I have been a cabinet and furniture maker since the early 80's. My love for the 17th-early 19th century led me to become a serious reenactor and builder of period correct trunks, chests, boxes and cases. In doing so I found it necessary to build my own hardware, reproduced from originals. Through the years much of my work has been purchased for Historic sites, museums, movies, reenactments and home decor. Once known as The Trunk Shoppe, I retired in 2011 but have since restarted the business (part-time) as The Lock and Box Shoppe.
