Artisan   Woodturner   Furniture Restoration   Instructor

From the early days with my Dad in his workshop, I was instilled with the Art of Woodworking. From Building Houses and Kitchen Cabinets, to turning the smallest items on a Lathe. I have over 50 years of Woodworking Experience. And Yes! Even turning out as good and in some cases better than my Dad, with my designs and craftsmanship. I have been making Pens for over 35 Years, adding Jewelry Boxes and Humidors to my collection, and recently teaching Furniture Restoration. I worked as a Senior Metallurgist for 25 years with Bayer Aspirin, Bartended Part Time for 45 years and managed a local bar for 12 years. I was also a for Manager of Rockler Woodworking and Assistant Manager of Woodcraft, both in the Massachusetts Area. In between, I even took on my own Concessions and Bar at a Local Yacht Club, serving Food and Beverages 7 days a Week.

Now Retired, (3 times) I am living in Palm Bay, Florida, where I have set up a little shop to continue in a small Craft Business, designing and creating many items for those who appreciate real craftsmanship with wood. (Click above on any item to see my work)

I served in the United States Navy for 6 Years, both active and in the Reserves. And Very proud of it. And now, a Proud member of the American Legion Post 163, in Eau Gallie, Florida. Maintaining and designing their web page, at:
