Location: Stevensville, Montana

I am a woodworking designer, artisan, craftsman and teacher. I am passionate about creative artistic expression and love to help others to discover their own creativity. I believe we all are lifelong learners, and the more I share with others, the more I am challenged to grow and expand in my own craft.

Every morning I wake up and realize how blessed I am to go to work doing what I love. We live a simple lifestyle in beautiful Western Montana, where my 2,500 sq. ft shop looks directly at the majestic Bitterroot Mountain Range.

As a woodworker, I love the term "Artisan" as it blends the ideas of "technical craft" with "artistic creativity and expression". Hence, an Artisan is one who is both deeply rooted in the tradition and skill of his craft as well as one who pursues qualities of abstraction and interpretation.

At my school ( my emphasis is to train students to embrace both the mastery of technical skills as well as the development of the artist heart.

I am looking forward to meeting new friends, sharing with others the knowledge and passion I have, and learning from a great community of like-minded people.

For those of you who are interested, I am offering a Lumberjocks special $30 discount on my live on-line "cyber school" classes. We have three different chair building classes this year, For more information or to register go to and enter "LJ2012" when you register.
