I have been interested in wood working all my life.
I started my wood working career in the California Bay area by making and selling items from Fisherman’s Wharf and Telegraph Avenue in Berkley, CA.
From there, in 1970, I met a Master wood worker and participated in an "old world" apprenticeship, working for free, in order to learn the art of custom mill work.
My experience working with wood ranges from designing and building handcrafted log homes to creating the mill work package for a 50 million dollar private residence, located in one of Colorado's exclusive ski resorts.
I was also involved in the restoration of the Beaumont Hotel in Ouray, Colorado. This project received an award, from President Bush in the White House, for the best privately funded historical restoration in the nation.
I also disassembled the old Rio Grand engine house in Westcliffe, Colorado, numbered the original building pieces, created a new foundation, fell trees and milled new timbers to replace rotted ones, and reassembled the entire building. This building is now part of the railroad museum.
I built a front entrance for the historic Majestic Theater in Loveland, CO, and duplicated the historic front entrance to the Rico Colorado County Court house. I also helped restore a historic log building near Ft. Collins, Colorado.
During my career, I have worked in Alaska building log homes along the Kenai River, and worked in the bush creating fun projects such as a log gravity water tower for a hunting camp.
I have worked on many very large homes in the major ski resorts in Colorado. I built a contemporary stair case for a home in Telluride, CO, which was chosen as one of the six best stair cases in the Rocky Mountain region. I ran an architectural mill work company for many years, until I decided to build a shop at my small ranch near Ridgway, Colorado.
My love is historical restoration and furniture making.
I enjoy working with people to help design their dreams and then turn them into physical reality.
My work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Mountain Living Magazine, The Brilliant Magazine, Stone and Tile Design Magazine, Luxury Home Quarterly, Kitchen Trends, Metal Construction News, Signature Kitchen and Bath, and the Vail Daily and Aspen Times newspapers.
I enjoy riding Harleys and horses, downhill skiing, and flying airplanes in Alaska.
I look forward to the opportunity of many more years of creating new dreams for you in the world of furniture making
and historical restoration.
