I studied furniture making with James Krenov at The College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program in the early 80’s. I made furniture for almost 25 years before turning to a more specialized focus on carving. While I am no longer making furniture “for my own pleasure” as the English stone carver Eric Gill referred to his speculative work, I do accept commissions for interesting projects.
