Hello World.

Robert began his woodworking journey in 2018 in Austin Texas while trying to build recessed shelves. Starting without a workbench or anyway to cut wood, Robert fell head-first into the craft and transformed his garage into a workshop. It became a good way to escape in the evenings from the software development day job. Robert also deployed twice while in the Marines. Woodworking became a way for him to find peace and patience. In 2023, he made the decision to quit his software career and pursue woodworking full-time. He spent nine months at Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood, CO for formal education on fine woodworking. He plans to return to Texas after an education path to expand his custom furniture shop.

"Every piece I make has some part of me with it. Not blood, not sweat, but my time and history. I can only make so many tables or cutting boards or cabinets, so everyone of them is special in that I devote myself to it and focus on the details where other big name assembly line manufacturers may miss. Besides building, seeing the satisfied and excited look in people's eyes when I deliver their customized 'thing' makes it that much more worth it."
