While writing his dissertation some forty years ago, Merle needed a way to unwind from the stress of hours on end of intellectual concentration. He joined an introductory woodworking course, and so began a lifelong passion, to design and make objects out of wood. Working with native hardwoods provides Merle an avenue for creativity and self-expression, a connection to an ancient craft tradition, and the pleasure of sharing something personal and handmade.
