About Dave


From the time I was a young boy growing up in Massachusetts I’ve been interested in working with wood and always knew it would be my life's vocation. My first real job as a carpenter's helper came the summer I turned 15. That was when I began to fill my toolbox with all the saws, chisels, planes and other tools that I needed to get the job done. As I got older, I gained a lot of experience working for other outfits as a carpenter. Eventually, I started my own business and for the next 30 years I built new homes and restored old ones. Then I felt it was time for a change. The last eight years or so I've been in my workshop devoting my time to making primitive birdhouses, country furniture and garden items.
