Why little h? My dad is BIG H.

little h was born in 1977 in a garage in Bethesda, Maryland. Returning from a trip to Community Hardware with my Dad, I had a brown paper bag of 8d nails in one hand and a bundle of scrap wood under my arm. The rest of the day was spent in the garage banging out tanks and airplanes. There is still quite a bit of that seven year old boy in my approach to woodworking and design.

I think of my woodwork as functional sculpture. Proportion and relative size are my measuring sticks. The pragmatic builder in me is not afraid to assemble with screws, the pure craftsman prefers the natural color of the wood.

The creative process for my design and photography is not all that different from my approach to woodworking. Give me some tools and I will make something. Don't embellish unless the subject calls for it. Inspiration comes from Leo Fender, Donald Judd and Bill Frisell.

Send a message and we'll talk about your project. Let's make something together. Never stop learning. Never stop teaching.
