Years at Wake Forest: 24

Previous Artisans’ Fairs: seven

What he likes best about the Fair: The opportunity to sell my products, to meet people, and to see fellow vendors

His products: Wood trays, cutting boards, trivets, small tables. They are environmentally positive (using small pieces of wood rather than discarding), food safe, durable and visually appealing.

A little history: Started by using scraps of wood from other projects, making cutting boards similar to ones I had seen at craft shops. I’ve been woodworking for over 20 years.
