I started woodworking with a Sear's radial arm saw in 1972 while I was in the Air Force. Early on I made a lot of small boxes and then progressed to simple furniture. I began carving after a class at the Marc Adams School where I also took a number of other classes over the years. I retired from the practice of Medicine in 2001 and moved to Gatesville, TX where I divide my time between woodworking and writing. I have very little of my output since most of it has been given to family.

Below are a few of my woodworking projects:

Another Wedding Chest made in Oak
A couple of toy boxes from a group of five I made the
Christmas before last for all my little grandchildren
(I'm now behind by 2!)
Barristers bookcase in walnut
CD Bookcase
Inlaid Knife Handles
Another Wedding Chest
Music Stand I designed for my youngest daughter who is a
professional violinist. The stand is of Walnut with Walnut
Burl Veneer on the face and the tray is ebony.
