The boxes and boards are constructed in multiple
steps of dimensioning, laminating, and shaping various pieces
of wood from rough lumber . All woods are solid and exhibit their
natural colours. Many construction steps require the use of templates,
jigs, or holders designed and made specifically for each box
or board. The boxes and boards are sanded to 320 grit and are
finished with several coats of water based varathane.
I have a passion for revealing and combining the beauty
of ordinary North American woods, and complimentary exotic woods,
to create functional and decorative pieces. I love the way wood
looks, feels, and smells. I hope my passion translates into creations
that surprise and delight the senses and facilitates a deeper
appreciation for the natural beauty of wood, especially that
which was hidden and often undiscovered.
