"Creating tomorrows' heirlooms today"

My furniture combines the best of traditional craftsmanship with the clean look of contemporary design. I rely on beautifully figured woods and attention to detail to acheive a look that will enhance any environment.
I began woodworking over 30 years ago, drawing inspiration from many of the contemporary masters of the time. My style and technique has continued to evolve over the years.
Please browse my portfolio pages to view some of my past works and those available now. I find e-mails preferable, but phone calls are welcome too!
Examples of my furniture can be seen at selected art shows in the Rocky Mountain Region, and the lobby of the Wort Hotel in Jackson,WY.

My studio is located near Preston, Idaho, which is about 25 miles north
of Logan, Utah in beautiful Cache Valley. I spend my days surrounded
by hardwood trees and mountain views, creating fine furniture for
discriminating clients from around the country. I personally select fine
hardwoods for figure, soundness, and color. With an eye for detail and
an unrelenting quest for excellence, my pieces are true heirlooms.
Dovetailed drawers, mortice and tenon joinery, and modern adhesives all
insure that they will stand the test of time. Sawn veneer panels, combined
with inlays and marquetry allow endless design possibilities.
All of my furniture is finished with traditional varnish, which is then hand
rubbed to the desired sheen.
Computer-aided design assists me in working with you or your designer
to create that special piece for your home, business, or office.
I can locate nearly any wood that is commercially available.
Shipping is available worldwide. I welcome your inquiries and look forward to making your surroundings a bit more pleasurable.
