I have been fascinated with wood since the age 8 when my uncle gave me a box of thin wood scraps and a coping saw. In high school and college, I worked at a sawmill. After getting a degree in wood tech, I was a manufacturing engineer in the cabinet industry.
Almost 20 years ago, I traded computerized machinery for a table saw and began my own woodworking business. In the last 5 years, I have devoted more and more time to the craft of blacksmithing and knife making. Now living in Cheney, I am very excited to pursue my craft as a woodworker and knifemaker to its fullest extent.
