The craftsmanship on this table is impeccable. All my friends want them now too. And the seller is a great guy to work with on custom orders. Highly recommend.

The table top has been squared up and is ready for the frame to be added. The smaller pieces are being glued in and will be trimmed down before the filler is added.

About

A little bit of everything—art and life.

In everyday I need to find time to make something—anything. Each and everyday needs time for creative output. So in between teaching classes and all the rest of the stuff of living in the 21st century I find time to disappear into one of my two studios. One overlooks the Mississippi River and the other is in the basement of my home. Here I begin the process of making books, posters, designing and building furniture, making prints, painting and drawing and making something new everyday.
My past experiences of working in a t-shirt shop, working as a commercial illustrator in Detroit (cars, cars and more cars) and teaching all have informed my artistic practices. So what I enjoy doing the most is doing a bit of everything and seeing how all the varied interests I have blend together into art forms.
