About the Book
As a profession, I am a civil engineer and land surveyor and have been in the business for 38 years. I am one of those unique souls that have both sides of the brain going. Over these past 35 years I have always had a passion for what I call the heritage arts. The heritage arts are the skills that helped build America prior to the industrialization of our durable goods. The heritage arts include woodworking, blacksmithing, leatherwork, pottery, and other skills of that are now considered crafts and had seen a decline in their practice.
I have accumulated many tools over the past 35 years and with my knowledge of construction in mixed media I have decided to embark on a journey to pursue my love for the arts and crafts. This is my studio.
