Location: Texas

I've been to 4 continents/46 states, experienced an earthquake, hurricane and wild fires, split trillions and trillions of atoms, shook the hand of a president, built almost all of the non-upholstered furniture in my home, had a hole in one, got two great sons (and DILs) and have been crazy about my wife forever. And oh yea, I'm not too big on heights.

I've been designing and building furniture/cabinetry as a hobby for over 30 years now. Most projects are for personal use; I really enjoy those that offer a challenge or an opportunity to be creative.

One of my favorite quotes is from Gustav Stickley:

"The true sense of ownership is not what you buy at the Department Store. It's what you build yourself with a purpose and function in mind."

-- Dave, Texas
