|Grandson of a carpenter, I grew up appreciating wood and
woodworking. Several years ago, I began making wide plank
flooring and stair parts, a business I still run today.
You will see a link on the homepage to Bowles Creek Millworks,
and several pictures of pine floors and stairs that I have done.
But my passion is making furniture using only the time-tested
methods of yesterday. It still thrills me to run my hands along
a recovered slab of sinker cypress hundreds of years old, or to
smell the pine sawdust from a beam first hewn with adze or ax
in a bygone century. Each piece tells a story, preserves a bit
of history, has its own peculiar characteristics, and suggest
what best to be made from it. I believe that special and ancient
wood deserves the care of a craftsman and the imagination of
an artist, and I try to build pieces both worthy of the wood and
your trust. I promise that I will never replace
craftsmanship with salesmanship.
