Art Nouveau Occasional Table

Materials: Curly Maple, Quartz Spheres

Private Commission: Seattle, WA


"I was looking to adapt a piece of furniture Pete had previously created to get one that fit my (Art Nouveau) aesthetics... he truly delivered. He was consistently responsive to my questions and requests, incorporating them when they added to the piece and explaining those that could detract from it. Overall, a very successful collaboration with the end result being the creation of a beautiful piece of functional furniture art.  Once finished, he made  certain the piece was delivered quickly, safe and securely."

His & Hers Armoires for a very large bedroom

This is one of two matching armoires in the shop ready for delivery. Outfitted with vent and fan for cooling electronics. The wood is Anigre, a hardwood from Africa, and Steamed Beech for the legs. Both woods have been dyed to match the bedroom decor. The inlay is Holly. The other armoire looks exactly the same only with the colors reversed.

Headboard and side tables sported the same motif of white holly arcs. It all came together to look fantastic!

Collectible Boxes in Exotic Woods

Making boxes and containers for valuables and collectibles is one of my favorite things to do. This particular one was made to hold a collection of specialized pasta extruders.They were used on a daily basis at Ferro's Restaurant in Idyllwild, CA


My clients envisioned this rather unique shape for their TV room.

I presented a few different design treatments and this is the one they chose. It uses five different veneer species including Afromosia, Obeche, Bubinga and Black Walnut. There

are 6 drawers and multiple adjustable shelves behind the veneered doors.
