I am the sole operator of a wood working business. I specialize in making Victorian Architecture. My primary work areas are the historic areas of Oak Bluffs, MA. All my work is handcrafted. I started making “gingerbread” trim when I was about 15 years old, when I was living in a cottage that was built in 1864. I collect old photos of this area to try and recreate, as close as possible, original designs for these old homes. Attached is a photo of a home were I recently made all new railings, posts, corbels, and finials. It is a real pleasure to bring back the “old” look of these homes. It’s often a challenge, but rewarding, to make something you can’t get “off the shelf”.
