Dear Dad,

I've created this website format to be dedicated to you. It is meant not necessarily to build your private, custom, and commission business, but rather to more clearly communicate your values and goals as a woodworker. The values of craftsmanship, quality, and process that come across in your work have also been those that you have taught me, and those that I value in everything that I do personally - so this website is also meant to be a "thank you" to you for those, as well. 

This is undoubtedly a small and inadequate thank you for all that you've taught and given me. But, I do hope that it in some way reflects and communicates your values as a woodworker to those who do not personally know you, and clarifies those values to those that do. 

To me, the quality of your work, and the care and thought that goes into each and every piece is something that I care for, and something that I can see you value very much, and in which take great personal and professional pride. 

While I do hope that more people are able to gain access and exposure to your work, more than anything I hope that this website is able to reflect the care that you put into it, as well as your values of craftsmanship, functionality, and aesthetics.
