Griff’s first exposure to woodworking came about at an early age helping his father Don in his workshop making toys and many other things for sale in their toy store. Around that same time Griff’s father built a small workbench for him and his brother Chris. Since 1998 Griff has been working with wood primarily making furniture. Beside working in his own shop, his experience covers a wide range including commercial construction and residential carpentry. He was also very fortunate to be able to work for Wendell Castle in one of his studio’s for many years. All of his life experiences never cease to keep him continuously challenged and inspired.
