My interest in crafting wood extends beyond designing unique forms. I balance a functional use with artistic design. I use many species of wood that offer an array of hues of grain patterns, which have natural aesthetic appeal. In order to reach the desired level of craftsmanship in my work, I pay close attention to detail and structural design. For instance, with many of the tables, I incorporate a secondary apron as a segue between the primary apron and the tabletop. This technique gives the impression of a “floating” top from various perspectives. I also like to create a cantilevered top by shorting the secondary apron. Although I have made some limited editions, most of my tables are one-of-a-kind pieces.
