I have been joyfully designing and constructing custom furniture for the past twenty years. In my prior career as a veterinarian, I often felt a strong urge to step away and make good works out of wood. Building and designing have become comforting obsessions that have lovingly encircled my soul.
My designs tend toward simple while emphasizing excellent technique and the inherent wonder of one of our earth’s most beautiful mediums – wood. The way I see it, opening up rough lumber to reveal the stunning wood inside is better than any Christmas morning.
Over the evolution of my career, chairs and other types of seating have become my main focus of interest. The challenge of designing and constructing a great chair or stool that is beautiful, durable and comfortable is a task I greatly enjoy.
