My timber-work is steeped in, and guided by, tradition. Embodied within that tradition lies a vast wealth of human wisdom accumulated over hundreds and hundreds of years and reaching across a multitude of cultures. As a traditional timber frame carpenter in the post-modern age, I am faced with an almost overwhelming abundance of choices when it comes to patterns and joinery. The choices must be tempered with careful consideration of context and precedent in order that the outcome might have any hope of coherence and integrity. I strive to keep my work pure, graceful, and of an enduring level of craftsmanship. Time will ultimately measure my efforts.
