Announcement    I have some new bragging rights! Living Roots Wine & Co. is a brand new winery in upstate New York, and they had a bunch of my chairs there for their opening! --- I wonder if I can write off a visit there as a business trip.

My chairs have been in Country Living and Country Sampler magazines, on NBC Sports during the 2016 volleyball season, and can be found at The Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall, The Westin Nashville Hotel, and the Olmsted luxury apartments in Chamblee and Nashville. Recent business additions include the Novecento restaurant in Miami, and Lokal Fishtown hotel just outside of Philadelphia.

Video summary: My chairs sure have been around a lot of fire pits!

Welcome! Come on in! Have a seat!!

These folding lawn chairs are made from yellow pine or red oak and are surprisingly comfortable, very sturdy, and also quite beautiful. They look amazing on a front porch or back deck, and fold so they can be taken to almost any outing. Plus, they're an excellent conversation piece and are sure to grab some attention!

My favorite part in making the chairs is watching the planks of lumber turn into chair pieces, and then those pieces turning into chairs. Each piece of wood has a unique pattern in its grain; I really like opening up the finished chair to see how the patterns turned out.

My chairs had the distinction of being broadcast on national TV - NBC and NBCSN!!
Professional volleyball athletes were resting in them during the broadcasts of the AVP (Association of Volleyball Professionals) tournaments! Since some of these athletes are going to the 2016 Olympics - I'm able to say that my chairs have had Olympian butts sitting in them - I don't think many woodworkers can make that claim to fame! These tournaments have taken my chairs all over the country; New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, New Orleans, Huntington Beach and Manhattan Beach, CA. and then Chicago.

Also, the Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall in Atlanta bought some for their new outdoor grove. The Ladybird is an upscale restaurant with a relaxed, campground-like feel. The Travel Channel recently filmed a pilot TV show there, so my chairs may be featured in that show, too!

In addition to the AVP and Ladybird restaurant, four of my chairs were purchased by Adobe Systems for their 2015 Adobe MAX conference. Those particular chairs are red and can be seen in my shop video.

I started out making items out of reclaimed wood as a hobby. One of my favorite pieces is a beautiful table that I made for my wife - the top of the table has over 200 intricate pieces and a glass-like epoxy protecting it.

I love making my chairs and being able to make something beautiful and useful for others to enjoy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
