Furniture designs inspired by Shaker, Mission and Arts and Crafts styles. Commissions welcomed.
Most of my work is inspired by Shaker, Mission, and Arts & Crafts furniture, believing that simple, functional furniture crafted with quality materials, integrity and pride will yield a timeless piece that will be passed down from generation to generation. All pieces are made of solid hardwoods. Some of my favorites are cherry, walnut, and figured maples. However, I do have access to many beautiful woods everything from apple wood to zebra wood and everything in between. I take great pride in the selection of the wood and the time-consuming placement and matching of the grains and color. This cumbersome task of hand selecting often allows me to use boards from the same tree to complete a piece. Traditional joinery is a major component mortise & tenon, dovetails, sliding dovetails joinery that hasn’t changed since the 19th century. No two pieces are alike. While the dimensions may be identical, the characteristics of the wood are clearly distinguishable to the eye making each piece a one-of-a-kind work of art. This sort of “identity” is what sets my furniture apart from others.
