Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world wide web...

In addition to making custom woodwork, cabinetry and furniture; I make keepsake boxes. All are one-of-a-kind, using exotic hardwoods, often with inlays. When complete, I name each with an Illinois city name.
In addition to woodwork, I am a pilot and avid sailor. I have reconstructed antique aircraft (a D-17s Staggerwing and a PT-19 Cornell). It is a real thrill to strap an engine and some wheels onto a woodworking project and lift off the ground! Talk about the biggest test of your craftsmanship.

-- Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsman can hide his mistakes.
