This is a simple collection of pictures of items; some vanities, some cabinets, who knows what. No real organization, just a bunch of ideas to browse through. The more traditional stuff I’ve left out; everyone knows what that looks like.

We’ll start out with normal stuff, and let things fall apart as we go on…

Oh, and just so you know, we do “white stuff”, too…. (Sort of a joke, there…)  Many people comment on why all the pictures are of “different” things, nothing very straightforward, white-painted stuff. The idea of this site is to try to give not just a sampling of what we can do, but also to give you some ideas of what can be done. Some may be too outside the box for you, but hey, maybe there’s a germ of an idea for something special, something that’ll make your friends go “wow.”

The White Room

stairs, with hand-made tiger maple handrail and newels to match a 1700's version

Looking up inside the new-old barn



Scrap wood mantle. Left-over flooring and small pieces of guitar tonewood complete the picture. Note the incredible cool shade-shifting crown molding, using hi-tech auto paint. Using decorative effects, like gold leaf glitter in paint goes back to colonial times, and about 3000 years before that.

same thing, bigger version












drawer fronts, bearclaw spruce on walnut with violin peg knobs













experimenting with different woods on a colored backround. Painted frames can really make wood stand out, but maybe this color isn't quite the right one. It does stand out, though.

Ebony and macassar ebony newel post.

open, table-style vanity with a bubinga top.










Curly koa cabinet door, with Inspector 16 lurking inside, spying on us as we work. He can get a little creepy sometimes.

cd cabinet with to shelf supported by Henry James fork crowns. These mean nothing to you unless you're an avid old-school road bicycle racer.









Part of a table/built-in thing using curly Koa and Lace she-oak, a most incredible rare wood from Australia. Abalone stripe for accent. The owner is a rare guitar collector and musician.






A view of a metal sculpture I once did. This was years ago when I was grying to be a "fine" artist. After years of trying, I finally got a show at a big avant-guard gallery in the city. About 2 weeks before my show, the gallery went under. Now that's a sign from above.
