About

Vintage quilt block designs expressed in beautiful and exotic wood veneers on finely hand-crafted wooden boxes.

We've taken some of the best-loved and most interesting quilt blocks from past centuries and translated them into finely crafted wooden boxes, using beautiful and exotic veneers to reinterpret the designs. Each box is unique; no two are ever just alike.

I handcraft each box from premium cabinet grade birch or cherry plywood, so the inside reveals the rich grain of the wood. We cut the quilt block design, by hand or laser, to showcase the lush variety of natural colors and grains in the veneers, which often include spectacular bird's eye, burl, curly, dimple, flame, quilted or other figured woods. I use no stains but rather choose each wood for it's own color and personality. I create these pieces to evoke the comfort of cherished heirloom quilts, as well as the timeless strength of fine hardwood furniture.
