New Designs | New Show Schedule | Newly Improved Website

The past winter was an ideal mix of commissioned work, that pays the bills, and time for new creative development, which feeds the spirit. It’s especially nice when someone (actually 2 individuals) commissions a new design, as was the case with the 4 tables shown below, which are all 4-leaf pedestal tables

These tables feature the brand new hand-forged base made by a local metal artisan. The shaped and textured steel discs, I believe, are the ultimate functional and esthetic touch for this alluring design.

Another promising new design developed over the winter is what I’m calling the Timber-base style of table base. This involves the use of large timbers and exposed joinery, including draw-bored bridle joints. The simplicity of the style along with the authenticity of the woodwork, to me, is most appealing. I’ll be curious to see how the design is received in this spring’s shows.
