I make guitars, furniture, and other pieces out of wood. I view woodworking as both an artistic (and design) endeavor as well as a trade. I like how woodworking can be both functional and a work of design. Below are a few examples.
I designed this bed based on some work I admire greatly from the Greene and Greene brothers (early 20th century). I made this bed out of mahogany, maple, walnut, redwood, ebony and pearl. I designed and created the inlay trees and used "found" pieces of an old engraved Asian fan for the details.
I started making guitars just after I finished college. I wasn't a woodworker at the time, and creating musical instruments made me step further into woodworking as a whole.
I created cabinets, drawers, and countertops for my kitchen. I used curly redwood and Douglas Fir for most of the cabinets and drawers, and maple and walnut for the countertops.
