Fabrication in Wood

I have always considered myself a 'fabricator' in wood. I make what people want or need. 
My range of work is quite vast. I am happy to complete simple utilitarian projects, or fine furniture pieces.
I apply finishes ranging from super simple to nutty complex and polished like glass. 
I have used 100's of different species of wood. I really enjoy the material I work in. I have used a huge variety of exotic and highly figured woods. I also use common hardwoods and sometimes softwoods.
There are several specialized processes I am also comfortable with; Veneer work, marquetry, inlay, binding, and curved components.
The project, the budget, and the customer dictate these choices.

Design & Problem Solving

Everything I have ever made has to be designed and engineered. I have build simple things, complex things, and even crazy things. I make what people need, or I make what they imagine. My job has always been to interpret and understand the concept, sketch it, design it, engineer the design, then make it. Generally I work in wood, but I also weld, fabricate, and do some machining. I love a challenge.

Keeping it Interesting

I built plywood spaceships for Disney Studios, I also designed and build two collapsible walking staffs for a geologist who travelled a lot. I restored a 100 year old horse carriage, and repaired a 100 year old sailboat. I built structural knee brackets for a 100 year old train station that was turned into a pub. I once built a lace-making machine for a nice woman. I built exotic wood dashboards for a sports car manufacturer. I have made dagger boards, rudders, hatches, masts, gaffs and booms. I have build many speaker cabinets. I have carved cabriole legs, and a sheep herder. 
I am open minded and love change.
