Description of Apprenticeship:

I was born in 1981 and have been woodworking since 1987. I was born the son of a finished carpenter who put himself through Law School working with wood. I have recieved two awards throughout my schooling and recieved formal training in 2007 from curtis buchanaon, dan faia, NBSS staff, and Tom O'neil. As my teachers they have all added to my current success in this field. Now I want a student who has the same passion for furniture making as I did, and still do. This will be beneficial for the both of us as my sales will increase and the apprentice will learn valuable woodworking knowledge.
