furniture should be uniquely adapted to individual needs, locations
and tastes. We all have the instinct to furnish and decorate
our surroundings, and the result is most beautiful when the
decorations come from one's own life.
in modern times is mass production; to find an average and make
all furniture alike. This tendency is fueled by the demands
of prefabrication. The result is furniture that is "average"
in every way.
On the contrary,
people are not average. We have different tastes. no two homes
are alike, each situation is different, and furniture should
reflect this. A home furnished with custom furniture immediately
creates an atmosphere which supports rich experience. My specialty
is working with you to create furniture that resonates with
you and your home.
my professional woodworking career in 1974 working for LoPrinzi
Guitars, a small guitar building shop in New Jersey. I taught
woodworking and instrument building at Solebury School, a private
high school in Pennsylvania before moving to Vermont to study
furniture building with Gib Taylor at Marlboro College. In 1982
I graduated with honors. Since graduation I have been doing
custom cabinetry, building custom furniture, stringed instruments
and drums, and custom designed home renovations.
