I graduated from College of the Redwoods’ Fine Furniture Program in May 2011. It’s been almost exactly two years since then, and I’ve been working my tail off to build-out a work space, purchase and rehab vintage machinery and create a furniture practice (all around a full time job). It’s been a long road, but I’m finally to a point where I’m building furniture.
Currently, I’m working on a simple table made out of reclaimed walnut with steel, hair-pin legs. I also have two commissions in the line-up–a writing table and a curved shelf for the writing studio where the table will live. Both of these pieces will be made out of a 300 pound elm slab that’s taking up too much space in my shop. (See the background of the photo above.) More about these two pieces later, there’s quite a story.
I hope you enjoy perusing my website and learning more about me as a furniture maker. I’ll be updating the blog and posting photos to Flickr regularly, so check back often for news and updates.
P.S. This blog is a continuation of the Off The Saw blog I kept while I was a student at College of the Redwoods. Feel free to visit it to learn more about what it’s like to live, work and play on California’s North Coast.
