I am the fourth generation rocking chair maker in my family, and with native woods, I create rocking chairs, stools, trays and cutting boards using many of the tools and techniques that have been handed down through the generations.

The seats in my chairs and stool are stuffed with twine that gives shape, comfort, and longevity to my pieces.

The finish is a four-step hand rubbed process that brings out the beauty and richness of the wood in all my works.
