What do you mean that every piece is one-of-a-kind?
Every piece of material that enters my shop was hand-selected. I personally pick out each piece of lumber to use for my products. In return, this means that no two boards are alike. Grain patterns will be different from product to product. Also since my products are handmade, there will be flaws in the products but this adds to the uniqueness & character.

How did you get into woodworking?
I was introduced to woodworking during my freshman year of high school. I ended up taking the next two years worth of shop classes. I instantly fell in love in with woodworking. After I graduated high school, the ability to do it was quickly gone because of Availability of tools but then a blessing came when i found a great deal on some standard tools. finally i was able to start again and since then i have been working to improve my skills & be the best i could be.
