I'm not just a photographer… one of my not so secret hobbies is woodworking. I like to build things out of wood. Oddly enough, I've never incorporated my woodworking into my photography, until now. My latest series of images is based on my love of wood, ALL kinds of wood. I could babble on about wood, but you get the idea. I do like to work the wood by hand as much as possible, except of course for the major cuts, all the finishing is done sans machine.
I have an endless supply of materials to work with, and enough variety to keep it interesting for me. My marquetry leaves a lot to be desired, it all comes clean in the digital wash anyway. It's rather exciting to have a new passion, even if it's something that's always been there. A lot ends up on the shop floor, but that's all part of creating.
