I was trained in traditional mortise and tenon construction attending to wood movement and flow. I do not use stains, as I prefer the natural look of the wood including the flaws. I do use a clear wipe on poly-gel that is both beautiful and durable.
I work with you to design the piece you desire for your space. Many people these days want a smaller piece to fit their space and that’s where I excel. I am a functional designer; adding a shelf or drawer for extra storage.
Wood is a living thing and similar to working with clay, the artist must be mindful of the natural inclination of the wood. Sometimes this may change the design from the original intention.
