I have been teaching and making for over 25 years. I am a carpenter and furniture maker by trade and have owned and managed a woodland for the last 16 years. I really love helping people make things out of wood and I enjoy seeing the results of my teaching. I also really enjoy seeing people benefit from being out in the woods.
