Believe it or not, a high school woodworking project is what started it all. Almost 20 years or so ago I was challenged to design and build something out of oak. At the time, my mother was in need of a new coffee table. The result: a beautiful coffee table. Here’s a photo of that same table almost 20 years later.
We still use this coffee table but I’m thinking about staining it to give it a fresh look (and to better match the décor of my home).
In addition to presenting a much needed present to my mother my fine craftsmanship was rewarded with an unexpected scholarship to attend the Construction Technology & Management program at UMass Amherst.
Since then, my experience has evolved from carpentry to design along with everything in between. Click here to read and see more projects I worked on previously.
