Heirloom-quality contemporary furniture rooted deeply in a historical craft tradition.
I keep a small studio, and believe in working intensively by hand with tools that demand and ensure a close connection to the wood - sawn from the hardwoods of our surrounding forests in the piedmont of North Carolina. Its a path toward our ambition for all my furniture - that it be beautiful and truly lasting.
Perhaps its temperament, or having learned joinery and woodcraft while a student of early American architecture, but I have gravitated toward very traditional ways of working. A glance around the shop reveals as much; most of the tools on the benches and walls would have been familiar to a cabinetmaker two centuries ago.
Working by hand is well suited to the way I translate an idea into furniture, feeling my way from rough sketches into a finished work. For that reason there are few machines in the shop; a workhorse lathe and bandsaw earn their keep. But the benches are the heart of the shop, where boards are planed, parts shaped, joints sawn and chiseled, shellac spilled, coffee drunk.
I invite you to explore my current line of furniture, or inquire about commissions for new designs.
