Process

1

INSPIRATION My inspiration comes from the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the trees that grow here. No two trees are the same just as no two pieces are that I make from them.

DESIGN I love design! Ideas often develop in my sketchbook, but where they really take shape is in the form of models and mock-ups.

CREATE Working with rough wood slabs, requires a lot of different tools to bring the material to finished form. My work is created with a nice mix of traditional hand tools and modern machines.

3

DETAIL It’s important to me that the “fingerprints” of the craftsman are on each piece I make. I try to marry the natural beauty of the wood with the skilled craftsmanship of the maker. When the two come together, a piece can really sing!

FINISH Each piece I create is finished with meticulous detail. This culminates in a finished piece with an irresistibly silky smooth finish.
