I am a family man, with roots in the tradition of self reliance. In the morning, I button my flannel and grow more beard; just a real man making real good furniture. I do not strive to be rich, but yearn to provide quality in all things I do. The success of my business does not lean on high volume sales but on having time to devote to designing and creating challenging pieces. My pleasant ambition is to build unique, beautiful things that will be loved and reliable.
