TIE Fighter

I designed and created the TIE Fighter Box for a Star Wars themed art Exhibit that happened in May. For those that don’t know May is Star Wars month (especially May 4th…May the 4th be with you). I turned the main body out of hard maple. I first turned a rough cylinder and added all my layout lines. I made a fixture to hold the cylinder for drilling the 1.25” drawer hole. After that it was back onto the lathe for turning. The wings were made by creating a 3-ply plywood out of hard maple and…

Stormy Night in the Mountains

Stormy Night in the Mountains started life with an email conversation between a friend and I. He was looking for a custom jewelry box for his then girlfriend. It was going to be her birthday in a couple months and he wanted something special….since it was going to be a proposal also! They live in Colorado so the theme and name were heavily incorporated. I had picked up some beautiful ,mineral streaked, birdseye maple on a motorcycle trip up in Northern Michigan. To me it looked as if there…

"Split Level"

The idea of a double compartment box that shared a common wall had bounced around in my head for a while. Once I related the idea to a classic architectural design I knew I had to start creating it. That was the beginning of the “Split Level” box. The main body is made from some very curly birch. I paid very close attention to how I was cutting the board up so that the upper and lower box pieces grain would line up with the main middle piece once assembled. Even though it is a blind dovetail…

The first of the final pictures of the "Split Level" boxes! Very happy with the way they turned out. I usually only make one box of a certain design but this time I made two to mix it up a bit.

"Extrude"

Designed around the look of how aluminum is extruded into shapes, the "Extrude" boxes represent the next step in mass furniture production. Just load up the light or dark material, push it though the die and out comes beautiful furniture. Sometimes I believe this is how the masses see the process. Blinded by cheap, easily made furniture from the big box stores. These boxes go out to all the craftsmen out there who know what it really takes to create beautiful woodwork. You have my respect…

"Aspire"

The design for “Aspire” was spawned from the strong feelings I had following a public art exhibit I participated in. It was such an amazing night of art and community I knew I wanted to capture some of that energy in a new piece…the design work for “Aspire” shortly followed. It is meant to pull your view up and up as would aspirations in your own life. Starting from a central starting point of awareness our aspirations will grow and make us who we are today and who we want to be in the…
