My Woodworking Journey

My love for woodworking began in 1980 when I joined Woodworking Planet as a junior carpenter member. This ignited my passion for creating beautiful and functional furniture and wooden pieces. Over the years, I have guided numerous woodworking projects, honing my skills and techniques.

In 1990, I joined Woodworking Circles in Azle, Texas. Throughout my 15+ year career with the company, I held various leadership positions, including team leader, supervisor, and Workshop Manager. I have been a member of several professional woodworking organizations, and my work has been recognized with various awards and accolades in the industry.

San Francisco’s Woodworking Boom

The late 1990s saw a boom in woodworking, especially in San Francisco, where I had the opportunity to lead several professional woodwork shops. I was fortunate enough to work with renowned woodworkers and celebrities like Marc Spagnuolo. This experience expanded my knowledge of different wood types, woodcarving, wood finishing, and wood sealing, allowing me to create masterpieces with excellent finishes.
