I learned to love fine woods and inlay work working in my business I’ve run with a partner for the last 14 years, Bankshot Antique Pool Tables .
I love the intricate marquetry work, but the job of a restorer is to make your repairs and restorations as hard to see as possible. My work should not be noticed, but should blend in so you see only the work of the original craftsmen.
With Quilt Boxes I get to stretch out a bit and have some fun. When my girl friend showed me one of her books on quilt block designs I was hooked. These beautiful designs, some well over 100 years old, have been handed down and used by quilt makers since quilting began.
I hope you will have as much pleasure looking at and using my boxes as I have making them.
