Amateur woodworker and maker all my life. After being fascinated by 19th century country furniture and its construction while living in upstate New York, I began collecting antique woodworking tools, including wooden planes. My experience includes carpentry, tool restoration, furniture building and restoration, post and beam shed construction, and more. Shifting from machines to hand tools. I am interested in sharing my knowledge of hand tools and their use. Member of Pacific Northwest Tool Collectors, Woodturner and wood collector.
