I work half the year in the Colorado Rockies so my time in my personal shop is limited. I usually turn out two or three custom orders each winter, plus a few odds and ends for gift shops. I work almost exclusively in sinker cypress--a difficult wood to work, but worth it when it doesn't tear out or warp. My most recent projects were a cypress dining table with trestle legs and benches, and an oak gun cabinet, surprisingly delivered from the damps of the Louisiana to the dry mountains without a crack, thanks to traditional joinery and lots of hand work.
