I live in a North Carolina hardwood forest, where I sustainably harvest timber for my work. My forest also provides solace in its peaceful chaos and spiritual sustenance. I value these attributes and strive to maintain its ecological balance and health by practicing sustainable forestry. I harvest only downed, windfall and dead-fall trees and those showing rot, infestation or other indicators of terminal condition. I work in round logs and I approach every one with a vision of what might be in it, and then I work until I find it.
