Artisan's Shop Bio:
I specialize in Mission style furniture and accessories for the Arts and Crafts, Mission and Bungalow furnished home. Inspiration for each piece I design and build draws on the rich history of Stickley, Limbert, Roycrofters, Greene & Greene and others. All these revered craftsmen had a passion for clean simple and elegant design. As a small independent furniture maker I can offer a degree of flexibility and quality not often found in larger shops. I build, primarily in Quarter sawn white Oak and Cherry. Every piece I build is carefully constructed by hand in the original style of the Arts and Crafts movement. The boards for each piece are carefully selected to match figure, pattern and grain. The joints are precision cut and hand fitted. Machine sanding is only used for the early stages of assembly, all my projects are carefully hand sanded and inspected. I use only natural finishes that are hand applied and rubbed out to a satin sheen. Each piece is unique and tailored to the desires of the client. Any of my lamps and other accessories can be ordered in a custom size or finish. All furniture starts from a drawing with your ideas and needs in mind. My hope is that the final product will be treasured by the client as well as their grandchildren.
With Christmas just around the corner- why not head on over to check out some of his pieces or inquire about a custom heirloom piece!
