Festival Instructor 2020

Defining oneself as a woodworker these days often leads to more questions than answers.  It would be much easier to specify: furniture maker, cabinetmaker, carpenter, artist, craftsman.  Yet I try not to confine myself to one label.  “Woodworker” suits me just fine, and all ambiguity that goes with it.  Folks always ask me what kind of work I do.  After years of fumbling a response, I’ve realized my work is creating spaces for people.  That may be a simple shelf on a wall or renovating an entire room.  I’ve built places to cook, places to bathe or to sleep.  I can build a table to share a meal or a shed for garden tools.  In today’s busy world, a charming space can make all the difference in life.  A rocker by the stove, a window seat, an office desk — wood adds a warmth absent in so many other materials.  And so it’s the medium I’ve chosen to focus my time.
