I have always been amazed by the beauty of wood.
The woods I use come from all over the world. There are many local sources that provide a large selection of local and exotic woods.
When I select the wood that I use in building my boxes, I examine the grain and color of the wood trying to visualize what the finished box may look like, making each box unique.
I have 40 plus years experience working with wood. I have dedicated the last 3 years to only making boxes.
