About Us

 

 

I am a wood furniture designer who has been practicing my craft for over 3 decades. My designs are unique and are completely original. I do not copy the work of others nor do I ever build from plans. I am passionate about the entire creative process. I start with an idea and some sketches and ultimately bring the idea to life in my fully equipped woodworking shop. The entire process is performed by me. From initial design to wood selection. From all aspects of woodworking  to application of the final coat of finish. I use only responsibly sourced hardwoods and always endeavor to keep waste to a minimum. I am highly respectful of the gift that nature has given us in the form of spectacular woods that exhibit amazing color, grain and figure. I am gradually transitioning to using only reclaimed wood for all my creations in the interest of conservation and preservation of our forests.

 

Now more than ever, it is important to bring beautiful, hand-made objects into our lives. Many of us spend a great deal more time in our homes and are typically surrounded by mass-produced electronics, appliances and furniture, none of which exhibit any degree of soul. Nothing mass produced will. Unique and individual works of art created by real people with a real passion for their craft will unquestionably infuse that soul into our spaces.
