Here's My Stuff!

I’m a dentist, living in a small town in Wisconsin. I’ve been working with wood for probably
close to 35 years and thoroughly enjoy the constant challenge of everything new that it offers.
These flowers are made from various exotics with sterling leaves and stems. Curly maple, cocobolo
I've been working on some walking sticks that you can turn from full length
walking sticks to canes, and of course you have to have a hidden knife. The
joints are sterling. The wood is bocote with ebony accents.
The next three pictures are of some bar stools that I’ve been toying around with for while. I
still have a couple of tweeks to get them totally the way I want them, but they’re close.
This is a combination guitar/music stand. I got tired of having my music on a coffee
table or chair, so I combined the two. This and the bar stools were both interesting projects.
