Function:

I am a visual artist and woodworker creating functional and character filled furniture and accessories using the many techniques I have accumulated over the years. I received my BFA in 1998 and have since done fine art, finish carpentry, cabinet installation, and faux finishing. I have been doing original furniture design and custom woodwork since 2010.
My goal and purpose is to combine these elements and skills to make functional beautiful furniture that is inviting as well as aesthetically pleasing.

PNW Kitchen accents.

A set of floating shelves, hidden light boxes and a reclaimed barn style door. All designed to order for one of my long term clients. Please do not leave advertisements for your bullcrap woodworking plans on my blog. I am a DESIGNER! I have never used any prefabbed plans for anything. I do not wish to disable commenting, but if you dill holes continue to abuse my space I will shut you down, stop now please.
back to the real deal... all these projects are custom designed and made from reclaimed old growth fir.

Custom built Carriage House Doors.

 I had a request to do a set of these earlier this summer, and have since done 4 different sets in various  neighborhoods in SE and SW Portland. Some of these I had just done a primer only, and the customers were going to final paint. Each opening is unique on these old carriage houses, so these are built to order.

Wooden bike pannier. 2nd prototype, soon to go into production and available for purchase.

As a pretty regular bike commuter, I started envisioning beautiful handcrafted wooden storage units. This side will hold all your roadside repair gear, cable lock, and either three beers or a sweater.
