Built in bookcase, painted. My client wanted something to accommodate several vintage aircraft models and pieces, and for it encapsulate the love seat and end table. The center span is over 9 feet long.

High Ranch home with lots of my work... Custom made oak carriage doors, hand oiled cedar siding, railing, real stone applied to lower level, soffit details, and custom built cedar arbor. Day and night photographed. We also installed the accent lighting.

Sometimes you have to give back. Volunteering for families of ALS patients in need building wheelchair ramps.  Feels good and you cant complain about the pay!

Hand bent and oiled tri-tone cedar wood bike fenders. The client also wanted the stock wood on the rear rack replaced with something special, so I cut sections from a tree with sentimental value that had fallen on their property. Natural bark edge and hand oiled finish.

My first refinish, completed long ago while in college, a 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom. Inspired by the purple lining Gibson used for the case interiors at the time, I created a custom color finish.  

Electric guitar body made from Balsa wood. Everyone said it couldnt be done, so I had to make it happen. This guitar is now 20 years old and holding up perfectly. Average weight of Telecaster type guitar is about 6 pounds, My Balsa creation, only a little over 3 pounds. The resonance and voice of this guitar is second to none because of the Balsa.
