Custom Furniture and Design

Early in my woodwork career, one of my mentors loaned me a copy of James Krenov's The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking. Krenov wrote, in an almost monastic way, of the quiet pursuit of integrity in craft and design, and he let the wood inspire and show the way. He crystallized for me and a whole generation the essence of the calling to be a woodworker.

My early design work was influenced by Krenov's own Scandinavian style, and from there I found my way to the American furniture traditions of the Shakers, the Arts and Crafts Movement, the Greene brothers, and on to the furniture of China and Japan. I also enjoy working in Mid-Century and Contemporary styles.
