Chairs are one of the most rewarding and challenging furniture forms to make. Whether you’re looking for a reproduction in styles from Chippendale, Windsors, Greene and Greene to Maloof, or a new design that we come op with together to meet your needs, I'm up for the challenge!
We have made tables ranging in size from 16" round candlestands to 18' boardroom tables. Contact us today to commission your dining, bedside, or specialty table.
Casepieces are chests of drawers, freestanding cabinets, armoires, and some specialized wall hung cabinets. These are solid wood furniture pieces with traditional joinery.
I also make kitchen cabinets, and they have their own page under the portfolio tab.
We build custom kitchens, closets, and unique built-ins working with customers to design beautiful parts of their homes often highlighted using native wood species that have been locally harvested.
Turned Hollow Forms
Hollow forms are some of the most beautiful, challenging, and fun forms to turn. I enjoy Turning them as time allows, contact me for current availability.
One of my woodworking mentors was the late Allen Ritzman. He was a pioneer in large bowl and hollow vessel turning, and a great friend. I am continuing his legacy of fine turned wooden objects, using two of his hand built lathes. Some of the bowls pictured here may be for sale. Contact me for current availability.
Our shop is located in an abandoned limestone quarry. We love this location for its beautiful cliff faces, privacy, and the fact that when you build on solid rock, you never have to deal with mud -even during construction! The shop walls are build from Aerated Autoclaved Concrete, or AAC. This material, developed in Sweden and used extensively throughout Europe, is a wonderful lightweight structural block that has excellent insulating properties for both sound and heat. We put a standing seam aluminum roof on the shop for its longevity and quality. The cupola adds a unique touch with wonderful practicality of bringing more natural light into the room below. I turned the finial on top of the cupola out of Western Red Cedar .
This Gallery is a small sampling of the many custom doors we have built.
I make custom architectural elements like staircases, entry doors, mantels, arches, and windows for clients.
We buy wood from around the country -and sometimes beyond- but the most rewarding and sustainable are the trees we mill ourselves. We have a Timberking bandmill and frequently mill local walnut, figured maple, ash, and other species that become available. Another huge benefit to having a sawmill is the ability to resaw thick slabs of wood to create book matches for furniture. Our mill can cut up to 28" wide boards.
I built boats for several years before deciding to go to furniture making school. I wanted to get away from epoxies, catalyzed paints, and move from imported woods to using our beautiful local hardwoods. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the boatbuilding days.
