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.

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"

Live Edge Maple Lamp. $95.00.

I made this lamp a few years ago, and was never satisfied with the hardware. After doing the pipe lamp, I realized I just needed to buy a lamp kit and a long rod. Now it's totally safe and looks great. With the new bell hanger bit and my new knowledge, I can make a lamp from just about any cool looking chunk of wood.
