These are three samples of artwork that I've done in wood. I work with a mixture of domestic and exotic hardwoods and veneer faced plywood, depending on the requirements of the piece and the client. Contact me to discuss custom made furniture.
The Griffindale Chair was an exploration of what would happen if animal rear legs were added onto the standard Chippendale chair design. The construction is mahogany, and all of the detail is hand-carved.
The Tansu / Drafting Cabinet is a drafting table and art media storage cabinet, and was featured in Taunton Press Fine Woodworking Design Book Four. The construction is mahogany, birdseye maple, padouk, and birch veneer faced plywood, supported on rubber casters.
The Display Case was designed and built for a Texas art gallery. Not apparent in the picture is that it can be disassembled into the legs, panels and assorted sections, transported and stored as pieces, and reassembled quickly on site. The construction is birch veneer faced plywood and beech. All four sides have identical stained glass panels, and the top is secured with dual locks.
