My Woodworking Interests

My interests are as varied as woodworking is. But if nailed down to a specific area, I'd have to say I love chairs, all kinds of chairs, and building them is very fulfilling. I also enjoy some case work now and then, and my latest interest is in home made hand tools. Most of all, I am just happy to be here, and learning, sharing, and collaborating with our woodworkers.

 

I would like to share some of the woodworkers who have influenced me in many ways.

  • Firstly, my dad. He planted the seed in me for woodworking when I was around 10 years old, he and I built many things in his little ol shop full of Craftsman and Home Craft tools and machinery. He's still alive and kicking today at the age of 83, and he's building crafts and things to this day!
  • Tage Frid
  • Hans Wegner
  • Charles Buchanan
  • Kerry Pierce
  • David Finck
  • Hal Taylor
  • Roy Underhill of course!

 

Some of my favorite woodworking genres.

  • Danish modern
  • American colonial
  • Shaker
  • Appalachia
  • Folk art
