I have been designing and building rustic log furniture since 1998. I build, lamps, end tables, dining tables, sofa tables, rocking chairs, benches, coffee tables, and custom picture frames. Every piece of wood I use has been cut and dried by me. I don't like to use any store bought lumber. This means I use all local wood from our area right here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and almost all has been reclaimed from old bridges, building sites, etc. When working with natural materials as I do to create my designs, no two items are exactly alike, every piece is unique. Some of my designs feature beautiful woodburnings.

I have been involved in archery all my life. When I was little my dad was in the archery club in Haywood County and he made lots of their arrows, so I watched and learned to make the arrows, spine test, fletch and crest them with beautiful colors.
As the compound bow era came on us I was young and wanted the fastest and newest thing out there so I learned to work on these awful things. I learned to tune them and keep up everybody's bows for them, but a few years of that was enough. The next deer season I was sitting in my stand with hand made arrows, shafts, tips, feathers from last years turkey, self nocks and all. My 48# hickory self bow was my first. I even made my own finger stalls, arm guard, and back quiver.
I never wanted to sit in the woods with a wheel or a cable attached to my bow again. So, I've been making archery equipment most of my 52 years and I love it! If you want some arrows and a bow made by somebody who would just as soon keep each one for himself then give my stuff a try. I know you'll be satisfied.
