The Launch

I am happy to announce the launch of my newly designed website :  I simplified it's layout and decided to have it focus on my woodworking.  It's main purpose is to show examples of the guitars and furniture that I have built.  Now that I have a permanent workshop on the northwest side of Chicago, I plan to promote my services.
I try to be as environmentally friendly as I can be and I plan on continuing to develop this aspect of my work.  I prefer to use non-toxic low VOC finishes for many reasons.  The manufacturing is easier on the environment, they are less hazardous for me to work with and they contribute to better air quality in your home.  I also try to use wood that is reclaimed or at least responsibly harvested.  Local is really the best way to go and there is no shortage of good wood around here.  Many of the pieces of furniture that are shown on my website are made from wood that was on it's way to the landfill.  It's amazing what people throw away.
I hope you like what you see ....thanks.......Dan
