Quality work is quality work.... it doesn't matter what industry you are in. As a hobbiest, I strive for quality in everything that i create....afterall I am using my free time after normal working hours. So, I consider wood working my creative outlet and..... it seems to be an obsession. On the days that I don't have to work specifically for the man, this is what I like to do.... which seems like more work.

I've discovered that I enjoy the design process just as much, and probably more than woodworking itself. I design something to shape and form, while considering contrasting woods, structural integrity, and joinery all at once. I usually can see a project clearly in my mind and then I have to get it on paper before I loose it. I find myself gravitating towards pieces that defy traditional construction and focus on use of negative space..and for me negative space might be the most important aspect when determining final design goals.

You can typically find me in the garage making a piece of furniture when I'm not cleaning carpet for CitruSolution of Decatur GA I'd like to get to a point where I can do wood working for a living, so I'm trying to come up with several repeatable designs that will be saleable in a variety of wood combinations.

Admirable creations! Very fine work. Also, I have (old) KEF107 reference speakers, so, admirable hifi equipment too. My daughter recently moved to Decatur, so, I may be there for a visit sometime soon. I’ll look for your shop.
