Heirloom Projects

One of my first real experiences learning woodworking was under the direction of my teacher, Ron Walker.  His mastery of carpentry and metalwork is shown is his designs and craftsmanship.  I am honored to have had the opportunity to learn techniques from him and to have worked under him.

These are some of the projects that I built under his direction. All of the rustic material came from old barns located around Southwest Missouri. We tore them down and processed the lumber ourselves. This long process included de-nailing, drying, cleaning off debree, cutting down, planing, and joining.
