My first experience in woodworking was way back in high school in shop class. It was at that time I found out I loved working with my hands.
The first project I made was a wishing well lamp. Yes I still have that lamp.
It wasn’t until many years later that I did anything with wood. Yet through all the years I had a deep appreciation for wood.
In 2014 I took a class at a local wood shop and made a pen. That was all it took to get me fully hooked once more. After that I began acquiring tools and turned my garage into a workshop.
After spending a fair amount of time making pens I began to become curious about other items that can be turned.
From that I began experimenting with making bowls, wine bottle toppers, and men’s shaving brushes.
