Hello and welcome to this, my first blog post!
This blog will cover a wide range of topics, all of which relate back to my passion: making and owning beautiful wood pieces. I will offer advice, answer questions, give opinions, and pass along information that I hope will be useful and interesting.
As some of you already know, several years ago (at the height of the recession – yikes!) I left a long corporate career to open greenwood bay, a custom woodworking studio. I found a wonderful old warehouse in Houston’s east end warehouse district, loaded up with great new tools and began a new adventure. I’m loving every minute of it.
After two and a half years, I’ve been fortunate to have been able to meet many wonderful people: clients, designers, architects, retailers, prospects, and many others. Among many things I’ve learned so far is that the love of wood, of beautiful design, and of handcrafted pieces are shared by more people than I realized. While factory made, low cost, low-quality items may have flooded our lives, the desire to be around truly beautiful, elemental pieces is alive and well! This blog is devoted to all of those who share this love.
I hope you find my writings to be interesting, informative, and entertaining. I invite your feedback: what do you like? What don’t you like? What else would you like to hear about?
