“Woodworking has a deeper significance than simply assembling furniture — it’s really about the relationships formed throughout the process. I remember being very young and watching both of my grandfathers’ woodworking projects, enjoying all of their tools and expertise. Recently, I have taken it upon myself to follow their woodworking practice. The polished beauty of a freshly stained headboard. The raw, rustic strength of a reclaimed barn wood table. Creating each piece is a challenge, but the reward is knowing that I’ve crafted each unique vision into someone’s meaningful reality.”
