Serving Table

Plantation Grown Peruvian Mahogany.

The inspiration for this piece came from the late 18th century sideboard it was designed to stand beside. The challenge was to build a piece that included similar features without the turned legs and marquetry. The hand-beaded legs complement the sideboard's vertical lines and fluted legs, while the horizontal beads reflect its top and drawer details.

I 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.

The 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.
