I am a self taught woodworker having started my career as a trim carpenter about 40 yrs ago. I now build custom furniture and cabinetry pieces on commission and spec. I prefer to work with woods native to Wisconsin but occasionally work with other woods. I enjoy figured woods and find that I can get exceptional looking wood from #2 & #3 lumber. My philosophy follows that of James Krenov in that I wait for the wood to tell me what it wants to be. I subscribe to the belief that the soul of a tree is found in its many imperfections and that it is my intention to exploit them whenever possible and appropriate in order to give the tree new life.

-- Ric, Mazomanie
