I am based out of Baltimore Maryland. We have been here since 2006, and we really enjoy it here. I have been lucky to find a niche market here, but I dream about expanding one day.
I really got the woodworking bug in 1990. After years of watching the New Yankee Workshop, I decided I wanted to give a try at wood working. My first piece was a work bench that I made with just a circular saw and a cheap router. It wasn’t pretty, but it was start. Since then, I can’t get enough. I have had very little formal training, however I have watched loads of woodworking shows over the years and in the past couple of years have watched hundreds of YouTube videos about woodworking and turning.
After we when the lottery, I want to attend the RISD (Rhode Island School of design) and get a degree in furniture design. Then I would like to apprentice with my woodworking hero, David Marks. Then I would like to open up a full time shop specializing in Art’s & Crafts furniture and production turning and teaching the art of woodworking.
I can’t say that I am an expert woodworker. In my mind, I still have not achieve the degrees of excellence that I hope to achieve on day.
