I've been designing and building custom furniture around the globe for over 25 years. I look at design as problem solving, and I enjoy developing a project to come up with just the right answers. The opportunities to work with new shapes and textures make these challenges so interesting. I build all the pieces myself in my shop near Madison, Wi using locally sourced materials as much as I can. I hand select each piece of lumber, considering where it will lie in the object, using it to its best advantage, whether that be as a drawer front or a serving tray.
Please remember that wood is a natural material, and as such, there will be color and grain variations in pieces.
