Large Commissions

The process of creating a piece of furniture to the customer's specifications can often involve not only the art and craft of woodworking, but also the art of pleasing all involved. We all can enjoy the process of envisioning an object and then bringing it into material existence. If I can make a living, be happy creating, and the customer gets what he and/or she wants for an agreed upon price, then the commission is successful.

Large Creations

The creative process for me can begin either with the matter or the form. At times, the piece of wood will strongly suggest its future form and my creativity is challenged to reveal that essence. At other times, I will have a form in mind of a piece of furniture with the challenge being to find the best pieces of wood to express that form. In either case, I consider the end product successfully complete only when it is purchased and brings joy to its new owner.
