Chairs are one of the most rewarding and challenging furniture forms to make. Working with design styles from Chippendale to Maloof, Windsors to Greene and Greene, 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.
Turned Hollow Forms
Hollow forms are some of the most beautiful, challenging, and fun forms to turn. They have a delicacy and presence that bowls seldom share.
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 .
We hope to offer classes in the coming years. if there's a specific skill you would like to learn, or a project you would like to make, please contact us. At this time we are guaging interest, and we hope to serve you in the future.
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.
wood for sale
We have an extensive wood collection, and regularly saw new logs. We might eventually sell wood on a retail basis.
Before going to furniture making school, I was a boat builder for several years.
