Wood is pretty amazing. It's versatile, organic, sustainable in most cases, and it retains it's life beyond it's living years as a tree. It has the ability to reconnect us with the qualities that make us human. It scars, and bleeds, it can be transformed and polished. It's something real. A piece of wood possesses a depth and a history that allows us to consider more deeply the world we live in. This is a collection of some of my more recent projects.

Though sanding is really an awful job, there is something sort of special about spending that kind of time going over every square inch of the piece with your hands and fingers. You really get to know the piece in an intimate kind of way - every single edge (68 different edges on this table), each corner, every little bump, dip and union between two pieces of wood. Sounds weird perhaps, but let’s make it weirder than it needs to be. Agreed? Now that the final sanding is done, I’ll get onto final finshing.
