Here's My Woodworking!

Ash and Walnut Rocking Horse

My workshop was featured in the December 2014 issue of Wood News Online. Here are some of my projects that I have built in that shop.


Cherry and Purple Heart Jewelry Chest

I started woodworking about 30 years ago when a friend asked me to store a lathe in my garage. I started out with small projects: treasure boxes and smaller bits of furniture. Woodworking went dormant for several years until I finished the third carport of my garage so I could heat and cool it. That space was just under 200 square feet but quite workable.

We moved to Kentucky from Colorado about eight years ago and found a house with a large out building. I finished about 650 square feet in that outbuilding and have been consistently making sawdust ever since. I have to pick my projects carefully these days. Each time I build a new piece of furniture something else has to go. The spalted maple in the end table came from a tree that fell down in my back yard.
