frontpage “Oak Kitchen Buffet" 24 Apr 2019


This past winter I completed an amazing project for a good friend. He gave me only a few specifications about what he wanted and gave me creative freedom to build a nice kitchen buffet for him. He told me only that he wanted it to be 72” long and 24” wide. He also told me not to include doors so he could have open space for storing things. I’d already built him and table, and for that, I used red oak to match the style of his place, so I started with solid red oak From there, I used a few of my favorite techniques and came up with this craftsman style buffet with some Greene and Greene influences. It was an incredible project and one of my biggest and most detailed accomplishments. The best part is how much he loved the piece, and it looks great in his place with the matching oak table. What you see here is the finished project. Check out the rest of the project on the next page.

frontpage “Butcher-Block Table" Customer Commission

I've been commissioned to build a transportable kitchen island in butcher-block style. My customer and I went back and forth with a few design ideas until he decided what would work best for his space. I provided Sketch-Up drawings like the one you see here to give him an idea of what the finished design would look like. 

The island will be 36" wide and 48" long. It will be approximately 40" tall to incorporate bar stools. The chessboard section will be end grain and the rest will be narrow face grain. Maple will be the primary wood with walnut used as the contrasting wood for the chessboard and for the bottom stretcher.

frontpage “Jewelry Box" 12" Maple & Mahogany Jewelry.

I built this miter & spline jewelry box for a customer. She wanted a long thin box to store her native American handcrafted bracelets. It makes a beautiful display case for the turquoise jewelry. I used mahogany for the base and maple for the top, the spline & the base. I planed the mahogany down to 3/8ths inch and lined the box with 1/4 inch maple.
