I make fine wood furniture and teach small classes in fine woodworking techniques in the tradition of my teacher and mentor, the late James Krenov.
As part of my work and interest in traditional woodworking, I enjoy restoring and using older woodworking machinery and hand tools.
Please peruse the schedule and class descriptions links provided and get in touch if you find any of the offerings of interest. I am also available to work with students, beginners through advanced, on a one-on-one basis to focus on skills that are of particular interest to you.
If you have questions or would like more information about my work or the classes I offer, please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 602-308-9188.

- Hand Planes — January 2017
One of the first things we did with Jim Krenov at the College of the Redwoods was learn to make and use a hand plane. 30+ years later I’m still making them, and introducing others to the experience. This session was in early January, 2017, with Christine, Josh, Mo, and DJ, and was among the most successful and satisfying classes I’ve held. Their planes were made from 12/4 hard maple, with walnut pins and wedges, sporting 1.5″ x 3.5″ Hock irons. The 3.2oz brass adjusting hammer heads are made in the shop, fitted to handles shaped by the students.
