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.

Driftwood Plank Salvage.

Found five of these true 2x12 spruce planks last week, went back for the first one today. Over 16 feet long, still damp. I cut it approximately in half and hiked it to the Volvo in 2 goes. Nice day for it.

Burly Spalted Maple Super Pull Magnetic Knife Rack. 85.00 with US shipping included.

This model of knife rack is incredibly strong and snappily responsive. Using a locally fabricated tool bar, which utilizes a U shaped channel to force both the positive and negative charges to the surface, I then tenon block the ends, and cover the magnet surface with a thin veneer. This leaves only the edges of the steel channel exposed, while the rest is encased in beautiful burly maple. The end result is a super strong magnetic knife rack that is gorgeous to behold.

Reclaimed Douglas Fir Dining Table with Steel Welded Legs. $1100.00

This table top is a really intense design, squared, capped. squared; repeat. The steel legs on this kind of piece accentuate the design aspect. Simple, to the point, but artistically pleasing.

Custom Order Driftwood Hemlock Super Pull Knife Rack.

These Super Pull Racks are made utilizing a premade magnetic toolbar assembly that is made right here in Portland. I create a channel for it to lie in, then cover the ends with a little tenon block, then create a veneer than covers the magnets but leaves the steel contact edge exposed. The result is a really strong pull in a beautiful piece of wood. This one went off to Tuscon yesterday, is 22 inches long and made from a piece of driftwood hemlock.
