0 Sales On Etsy since 2012

Announcement   Artist David L. Smith has shared his love of creating in wood with students from Arizona to Alaska. To motivate students in Alaskan villages, Smith taught them to make their own dog sleds and oak tables. Since retiring from school administration, he has continued his love of working with wood by designing and crreating by hand his arttistic furniture.

The artistic line of furniture that he calls "Touch of the Past Furniture" uses vintage reclaimed barnwood complemented with hickory, oak or cherry hardwoods. He is often inspired by childhood memories while designing pieces of furniture. He uses an oil finish that can be renewed through the years with a coat of Danish Oil on a soft cloth. Most of his pieces are "signed" with his signature cattle brqand.

David hand-selects materials for color and character. Original nail holes and knotholes add ruggedness. Leather inserts, slide-out coasters, twisted wire, etched glass, door fronts with carvings or rawhide etchings - make each piece unique. The drawer joints are dovetailed and pulls are often made from harness rings, leather or antlers. Examine the pieces carefully and you'll often find a secret drawer for hiding away a treasure.
