I remember working with my grandfather in his little shop as a little boy and building houses out of his scrap which lead me to take Jr. High wood shop where I had Mr. Martin Bell as an instructor. It was then that I figured out what to be when I grew up; a Wood Shop teacher. While I was able to achieve my dream job; it was short lived due to education cutbacks and Common Core taking precedence.

This has not stopped me from pursuing my true passion of building really great things from sticks. I have also pursued my second passion of building boats. My father; while I was growing up, always talked about his boyhood friend Syd Young who builds classic mahogany wooden boats which I though was the coolest thing ever and actually did my 8th grade career report on. While the prospectus of that industry at the time was poor and never pursued it professionally, I am still pursuing that dream as well and on my fourth boat build and working my way up to my dream boat of a classic Cris-Craft 19' double cockpit barrelback (Already have the plans - the same boat Gibbs is building on NCIS from a Ken Hackensen design available from Glen-L).

I have also "cut my teeth" by restoring old boats and building classic Misson Style furniture in the Stickley design.

I will be updating my pictures as soon as possible.
