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.

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.

Reclaimed Doug Fir Benches. $250.00

So I am just realizing that some of my settings were a bit obsolete, making it really hard for customers to contact me. I basically wrote myself in from another account, which should make it fairly simple, as I realize not everyone wants to sign on to Etsy or some other site that wants to fill your inbox.

Adjustable reclaimed Doug Fir and pipe shelving.

Another custom order job, these are mounted on the pipe via split shaft collars that I special ordered. This is a great way to make the most of wall space with out making it feel blocked off. That is a recurring comment is that it feels "open"
