You’ve probably heard this one a million times before – but it is incredibly satisfying to see someone get enjoyment and/or learn something from something you’ve made by hand. There no other feeling like it.
I have driven all over North America, including an epic run from the southern tip of Baja to Vancouver, BC - then across Canada to NY.
Now I am a proud father of two girls ages 5 and 1.5 and going sledding constitutes and adventurous activity.
I am an avid surfer, which in Maine means braving freezing water temps and below freezing air temps six months out of the year.
Tonight I cooked parmesan crusted Tilapia and Jasmine rice for dinner.
What got you started crafting?
My first woodworking project was building a skateboard ramp in my friend's driveway when I was 12. I've been making things from wood on and off ever since.
What is your source of inspiration?
My kids. The ocean. Geography.
What have you made recently?
I recently finished two new body surfing hand planes where I bent and glues in curved stringers - one with two pieces curving in like a teardrop shape and one with two curving out and a middle straight one like an atari logo. It was my first time bending wood like that and I'm super excited about the potential.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
Online, at local craft sales, and to a couple local retailers.
