    I use wood harvested locally (pallets, scrap from factories, found, recycled, etc.) as well as locally bought wood. I use machines to do the major shaping, but try to do most of the joinery and final shaping by hand. Each piece is composed from scratch with no plans. The wood tells me what it wants to be. Making something dead into a living breathing useful implement for human use is rewarding as it is strange. You don't have to get it to like it. And you use it without having to like it. Everyone has furniture, some of it just has more soul.
