Here is a sneak peak at some video shot in the old shop. It is for a new video subscription series I'm putting together. I had tons of requests for more instructional videos and felt it was time to take a deep dive. Thanks for all of your comments and support! Have a look and let me know what you think! More info to come as we roll this out.

When I was 35 years old I was forced to make the career change from union carpenter to woodworker.. this secretary is the fruit of the education I earned at the North Bennett St School ...that school and this piece i built as a student introduced me to Bob Vila and as a result my career path turned to video production and ultimately TV production ..My woodworking career has seen many highs and lows over the last 15+ years ..I have built some amazing pieces I never expected to be capable of ..I have met some incredible woodworkers .. I am most grateful to all who have encouraged me from the beginning and who have become fans and friends along the way!! Now my path has brought me to a place I have been terrified of since 1991.. I am committed to helping families like mine heal the wounds of unsolved murder.. I am not 100% sure how it’s all going to work out but I do know I am finally on the right life path .. it’s funny I literally fell into woodworking ..followed the opportunities and went pretty far ..now at 52 I am setting out on another new career path
and with your continued support there isn’t much I can’t accomplish .. so thanks .. and don’t be afraid of change ..if your interested to see more about Murder Matters www.murdermatters.com
