WoodDance.com is hosted at Host Gator. This business website is one of many sites on a WordPress MU installation I created years ago after growing tired of constantly updating many separate installations of WordPress. Continue reading Hostgator for my WPMU and Drupal websites.
With the doors assembled they needed a place to hang and I found just the piece to build in my copy of Antique Country Furniture of North America and Details of Its Construction, The Pennsylvania German Hanging Cupboard.
In addition to sharing some of my work on WoodDance.com and hosting an archive of tools on ToolboxBlog.com, last year I created a website dedicated to projects from reclaimed and recycled materials, ReclaimedRecycled.com. Continue reading ReclaimedRecycled.com

I haven’t posted to this site in a while but it doesn’t mean I’m not working.
Sometimes my work is so much a part of my life I literally live with it. Here is a picture of a chunk of floor I removed from a Frank Lloyd Wright house that I kept due to it’s ill nature. Too bad a piece of the original subfloor didn’t come up with it. Tomato, accounting and subfloor??
A shelf with movable boxes in the form of the letter E.
Here is a gift I made for my daughter this Christmas that I thought I would share. Constructed of Philippine mahogany with 1/4″ birch-ply backing it’s mahogan-‘E’. Based on multiples of 5 1/2″ the boxes will fit in any location on the shelf; 3 across the bottom, stacked several high or one here one there.
Due to response from visitors to my journal entries on interior and exterior door repairs at Philip Johnson’s Glass House I’ve posted a gallery of images taken in January and February of 2006. Here are some of my favorite shots from different locations on the property.
When I arrive at work it hasn’t been light for an hour. When I leave work during these winter months it’s been dark for almost an hour.
On this jobsite there isn’t enough electricity to power Halogen work lights and tools since the entire production is running on a single 20 Amp breaker.
Working at this Modern home is inspiring me to create some galleries of previous work for this site. From The Glass House Compound to Frank Lloyd Wright I have seen simple shapes of wood, metal, plaster, stone and glass! For what it’s worth, I have grown comfortable with the aesthetic. There is something intensely intriguing about the “philosophy” behind creations such as those by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. So much thought and it looks like that? Hahah.
