I’ve always loved working with my hands. From Lego and Erector sets to computers, cars and houses I love the challenge of building something new or saving something old.
I’ve been around woodworking since I was a child. I grew up helping my Dad and Grandfather (Pop-Pop) around the house on many a project. I learned a great deal from each of them and developed my lifelong love of learning. As I grew up I took on increasingly challenging projects and would seek out new techniques and tools to accomplish my goals.
As an adult I worked to take my skills to another level when I bought my first home. Working from a very tiny one car garage shop I designed and built a custom loft, custom fireplace surround and mantel, and numerous other home improvement projects. The more I got into woodworking the more I wanted to learn and in my quest I eventually found the North Bennet Street School (NBSS) in Boston and took the 2 week Fundamentals of Fine Woodworking course and from there I was really hooked on traditional woodworking.
I went on to graduate from the North Bennet Street School’s 2 year Preservation Carpentry program. I also completed many Cabinet and Furniture Making related workshops at the school. Some of which include: Fundamentals of Fine Woodworking, Inlay and Sand Shading, Letter Carving, Advanced Carving and Carving a Georgian Mantle Shelf, Advanced Turning with the Skew Chisel, Continuous Arm Windsor Chair, Side Escapement Wood Molding Planes, Advanced Turning, and many others.
Since graduating I’ve been busy working on my own projects, commissioned work, teaching workshops and one on one personal training. It’s been a great experience and I look forward to seeing where it continues to take me as there is always something new to learn.
