Recently Completed Console Table

I made this table for a client who saw a larger version in a gallery in Portland, ME. She wanted this piece to fit a specific space in her home. The table is made out of straight cherry for the base and figured cherry for the top.

This is the smallest version I’ve made in this design. I liked the proportions so much that I made an identical version to add to my booth lineup.

Dimensions: 36″L x 13″W x 26″H

New Toilet Tissue Caddy

I like to design and build pieces that bring beauty into people’s daily lives. While not the “trophy” piece of household furniture this tissue caddy is a necessity for anyone wanting to bring a little elegance and style into their bathroom. This space saving caddy is made from curly maple and holds up to four rolls of tissue paper.

New & Improved Wall Hanging Bookshelf

I tweaked the original design just a bit to make it easier to hang on the wall. This version has keyhole slots routed into the back that are extremely sturdy and easy to use.

Given the timing of the year I think the design is fitting. I sculpted the ends of the shelf supports to mimic a flock of flying geese.

 

Recently Completed Harvest Bed

This is a custom bed design I made for some good friends that I really like. They wanted a refined rustic look with a high headboard and a footboard that was below the top of the mattress. This footboard height if very popular for people who don’t like feeling boxed in at the end of the bed. This king was made with maple, stained in Walnut and has a gel urethane topcoat.

Booth at the 32nd annual Laudholm Crafts Festival

I met a lot of nice people this past weekend at the Laudholm crafts festival in Wells, ME. The weather was a little iffy at first but it turned out to be a really nice weekend overall. It was my first time at this really well done festival and one I think I would do again. It’s a lot of work getting the pieces and booth put together but people seem to really enjoy getting to see my pieces up close.unnamed
