ABOUT ME & STUFF
WHO? I am just a girl, holding a saw, hoping I can use it to turn some wood into something functional. I was once a math teacher in Florida but, as it turns out, woodworking in Philadelphia is the kind of applied math in a colder climate I was looking for.
WHAT? I design, build, and finish furniture (and anything else I find interesting) from local Pennsylvania hardwoods. I showcase the material and joinery as the primary design details in my work. I still love to teach. I have been designing and teaching long and short form woodworking courses for nearly 1o years.
WHERE? My home and shop are in Philadelphia, PA. I do often love a chance to take a trip to teach a class or schedule a delivery out of state.
HOW? WHY? I learned this craft beginning with an apprenticeship under a master woodworker, Jeffry Lohr. I have been trained in traditional furniture-making with a deep appreciation for the material and wood science. I love to design things that showcase the properties, figure, and colors of hardwoods.
