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.

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.

This piece is all mortise and tenon joinery, 60 inches long, 16 wide on top, and 36 inches high. Could be an entryway piece, a widescreen stand, a sideboard, or even a little breakfast spot with two or three stools.
I created this piece as a copy of one I did last year, this one is heading to a B&B in Minneapolis that was designed by John Scott Bradstreet, who brought this technique to America from Japan. This bench will be in the John Scott Bradstreet Suite!
I am creating another just like it presently and should have it ready soon.
I basically just keep on trying new concepts with these, keeps me from getting bored! For details and purchasing on these visit my Etsy shop at www.driftedge.etsy.com
