Kara’s Bench

Karas Bench Main

I suppose that because this beautiful piece came out of it, I can say that sometimes spousal nagging is a good thing. When my wife asked/nagged me to make her a bench under which she could store her shoes, this may not have been what she had in mind. Read more…

The Leiden Table and Bowl

This table was commissioned to replace an existing piece that was failing in both construction and utility. The kitchen table they had been living with for years was beginning to rock back and forth a bit too much, but it was also too small to be useful when their family of 5 all attempted to sit around it.

McIntyre Kitchen Island

McIntyre Island Main
It’s always fun for me to have a piece commissioned by an individual who appreciates fine lumber as much as I do. That was the case with this piece, as the customer took so much interest in the material selection that he joined me on a trip to the saw mill to scout out some possibilities. Read more…

The Davis Door

Every now and then, a job so unique comes along that it really doesn’t fit into any existing category of projects that I have done thus far in my career.  This front entry door certainly falls into that grouping.

Highland Table

Highland Table Main

Being a furniture maker, I enjoy the opportunity to work with what I believe to be one of the most incredible natural substances in all of creation: wood. I consider it an awesome responsibility to recognize the beauty and diversity of trees from all over the world and then figure out a way to design a piece which highlights those characteristics.

Highland Display Box

Display Box Main
After the completion of the Highland Table, I was commissioned by my church to make one more special piece. This time, a display box was needed to house a book which contained the names of all the families and individuals who donated money toward the new building’s construction.

The Jungle Gym Bunk Beds

Jungle Gym Main

Normally when someone commissions a piece from me, it is implied that the aesthetic appeal is of equal, if not greater importance than its functionality. In this case, however, the message was clear: these beds were for boys who would put them through trench warfare. Read more…
