We all need to leave the world better than we found it and to do good wherever we can.  Wood for Good is proud to donate part of its profits to charity to promote a better world and to further the craft of woodworking.  We welcome suggestions of other organizations worthy of support, here are the ones Wood for Good Furniture currently supports


Great material deserves to be put together with the most durable and beautiful joinery we know how to make.  I utilize the techniques that have stood the test of time such as the mortise and tenon, dovetails, bridle, and other joints I learned while working in the furniture shop at Hogwarts.  I build furniture using a hybrid method which utilizes both hand and power tools, whichever is most suited to the task.

Construction

I believe we all have the responsibility to care for our environment and to ensure the health of our planet for those who will follow us.  I use North American hardwoods from sustainably managed forests.  There is no need to import great hardwoods, we have some of the best in North America.  On the rare occasion I do have to use something from outside North America I make sure that I purchase it from a local small business.  

Material

I've been woodworking ever since my grandfather let me create saw dust with his trusty Shopsmith Mark V when I was about twelve years old.  My first commission was when my grandmother asked me to make a rubber band guns for a church yard sale.  I'm pretty sure she bought everything I made.  


Over the last couple of decades I've been fortunate to learn from some gifted teachers and work in some great shops to build and hone my skills as a craftsman.  ​I don't make rubber band guns anymore, but I do make things that will look great in a home for generations.
