Everything we build is a reflection of our craftsmanship, our stewardship, our very integrity. I love all the woods of this world and feel that when we, as craftsmen, are tasked with transforming wood into a thing of utility and beauty, it is incumbent upon us that this resource be treated with absolute respect, so that its second life might be as beneficial as possible.
Inspired, resolved design merged with artful craftsmanship assures that a work will not only endure, but continue to appeal and remain vital long after we are gone. I believe that when wood is worked with care, with respect, with judicious intent, it is the sustainable way to utilize this marvelous resource.
I endeavor to build in a way that embraces this philosophy in every respect. I believe that our work should be a virtual statement of sustainability, good stewardship, and of respect of the planet. This is my “eco” logic.
