Location: St. Louis

I am just a guy trying to make a living through woodworking. I've been a professional woodworker for 13 years, starting at age 21 where I worked in a cabinet shop making hotel and IHOP interiors. I studied for two years at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts where I learned traditional furniture making from and apprenticed under Phil Lowe, often working evenings assisting him in conserving historical furniture being collected and studied by the Peabody Essex Museum for various shows and literature. I returned to St. Louis in 2007 and have been making furniture and other things ever since.

My passions are design, joinery, shaping, prototyping, and making jigs and fixtures for furniture making, and lately 3D printing. But, my most favorite thing in the world, by far, is finding elegant solutions to persistent, complex problems.

I also make videos, and am the creator of Magport Fittings, a magnetic hose-fitting system for dust collection. This is my latest endeavor and it has been what's inspired me to keep moving forward. Designing and using Magport has been the most rewarding experience in my professional life.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Just check out your home page and I love your work. Your Sheraton style pieces are really well done and your other work seems to draw from many inspirations. I see some Escherick and William & Mary blended in a few of them. Truly great and original work. I look forward to see more from you and I would love to hear your back story and learn more about your business.
