I love working with wood. I also love teaching. What we do isn’t a secret. It shouldn’t be a secret. I find when I teach that inevitably I end up learning something. I never want to stop learning.
I have a personality where I can’t do things halfway. When I discovered woodworking early on, I dove quite deep into it. First it was on my own, then watching Norm and the New Yankee Workshop and reading too. I ended up with one of James Krenov’s books and eventually found myself at Rosewood Studio.
I initially gravitated heavily towards power tools then almost completely the other way with hand tools. With time I found a balance where I do the grunt work with power tools then spend my energy on refining joints and surfaces with my hands and the tools that they hold.
It has been a great journey so far.
