Here are a few samples of my recent work.  Derived mostly from the works of master craftsmen, I have incorporated classic details along with my own design interpretations and the timelessness of the Mission style.

Recently I have rediscovered the practice of ammonia- fuming white oak.  This was used by Stickley to change the color of the oak by altering the chemical make-up of the tannins.  The other colors you see are aniline dyes.  All pieces are finished with either oil or polyurethane, depending on the anticipated wear and tear.

I use reclaimed hardwoods when available and other woods from sustainable forests.

These pieces are meant to last many generations.

Please contact me to discuss your particular needs and style
