Working with wood goes back generations in my family. My grandpa, JT Adams, passed the skill of woodworking to his three eldest sons. My father, Walter Adams, the second of JT and Neecie's boys, raised me to take up the mantle of a craftsman. I am proud to say I've inherited his reverence and love for craftsmanship. I learned and practiced woodworking by working alongside my father and uncles during my formative years. At the same time, designing woodworking pieces on paper with thick carpenters pencils honed my true passion: drawing.
While built with a solid understanding of a craftsmanship in mind, more and more my pieces seem to have a mind of their own and betray the personality of their artist. Eccentric. Eclectic. Oddities. Mismatched. A combination of styles and periods.... all with a sincere nod to my Dad and the collected works of Eric Sloane.
