came to furniture making through a love of working with wood;
everything from cutting firewood to slicing fine shavings
with a hand plane was enjoyable to me as a teenager. I still
find each phase of furniture making fascinating, from designing
new pieces to picking trees that will yield exceptional lumber,
to milling and hand working each piece of furniture that lumber
yields. I work primarily with native hardwood, much of which
I have harvested myself.
I am committed
to the notion that for furniture to be of lasting value to
its owners it must be not only well crafted of carefully selected
wood, but it must fit its surroundings and the taste of its
owner. For this reason, I work closely with clients in the
design of each commissioned piece I build.
pieces shown below have been sold. I picture them here as
examples of my design sense, and to show some of the variety
in my work. I enjoy designing and building pieces in a wide
range of styles, from refined to free form. I have created
pieces as diverse as European style cabinets to live edge
coffee tables. I would be happy to build similar pieces or
to discuss your ideas for a commissioned piece.
