is an example of a period piece suitable for a desk, kitchen table,
or a library table. This table was made from some wonderfluly
figured Tiger Maple that has been stored in a barn in Vermont
for over 40 years. Perfect for creating that vintage look and
feel; further enhanced by an 8-step staining and finishing process
that gives the piece a rich patina with a durable soft luster.
I have used techniques in keeping with the period, such as pined
mortise and tenon joinery, hand cut dovetail drawers, and hand
planed surfaces. Dimensions: 60"L, 37"W, 29"T. Call for pricing, timing, and shipping quote.

that is a joy to live with, will last for many generations and
grow in value. I draw my inspiration from nature as well as other
woodworkers, architects, and period styles. I see furniture as
an expression of our relationship to the natural world in the
context of our home environment.
career in woodworking began in 1983 in Roseburg, Oregon, where
I apprenticed in a small cabinet shop for three years. In 1987
I opened my own woodworking shop in Vermont. Over the years my
work has progressed into studio furniture making, which has always
been my dream.
