Here's My Woodworking!

I have taken classes at McLaughlin Woods woodworking school in Canterbury, NH since around 2006. I have met many talented people that have welcomed me into the world of woodworking, including Tom McLaughlin, Levi Lucks, Terry Moore, Garrett Hack, Gordon Merrick and many more. I did some volunteer work for The New Hampshire Furniture Masters Organization auctions a couple years back. I have worked as a furniture maker at a little local company called Joy Valley Woodworks in Buxton, ME and also at Veneer Services in Kennebunk, ME. I am currently working at Little Harbor Windows in Berwick, ME. I received a scholarship at The Center For Furniture Craftsmanship a couple years back and that was a great school and a great experience!

Below are some pictures of my work. It's so much fun I could do it forever!

I just finished a lapsteel guitar.
