I am a retired nurse-attorney on a journey towards creating fine furniture and cabinetry. Ten years or more ago I began learning wood working. With the help of my best friend I just recently finished completely remodeling my own kitchen in curly maple. I blog about products, techniques and design applications for creating fine wood products. I do not do wood turning as of yet. I plan to learn coopering next. My passion is displaying the nature of the wood in all of its glory while adding creative utility features to furniture and cabinetry. Join the journey!
