The next group of photographs are of a custom bunk bed system that I designed and built for a 55,000 square foot residence in the Pend O'Reille wilderness. There are four of these that I installed in several guest suites.
All are in 8/4 quarter sawn white oak using traditional through mortise and tenon joinery. Assembled, the beds way about 700 pounds without the bedding.
This split china system is done in eastern white maple with a custom color finish
The entertainment center.
This hutch is a sibling to the entertainment center piece on the other side of the fireplace shown below. Both are done in maple with a custom color finish.
A better look at the base part of the hutch.
This hutch has the "Olde English" theme. Done entirely in maple with a 2" thick Teak top it is a 2 piece unit to make moving easier. All the doors and drawers are soft close.
Here is another look at that cooks desk in cherry
This cooks desk, also in cherry was designed for the end of a 3 level island. The desk is at 30" height, the cooktop counter (on the window side of the island) is at 36" height and the breakfast bar counter that sweeps over the desk cubbies is at 42" height.
Cherry was used in this piece. Ample under cabinet lighting was provided. To the right is a breakfast nook with an L shaped pair of benches with under seat storage and a table. Note the window treatment with lighting as well.
Walnut with Enkeboll corbels were used in this piece as well. I worker closely with the interior designer and homeowner to carefully fit this unit around the window treatment fabric and valance.
This one is in solid walnut with a clear coat. Corbels are from Enkeboll.
This photo shows the hutch with fluting, corbels and dentil crown molding
This china hutch has 12 drawers and tons of storage. It is done in plain sawn red oak with a stain and clear coat.
This piece is called a "Time's Table". It was designed for the "New York Times" newspaper. The corners are clipped to allow turning the pages on all four corners of a fully open newspaper. Then when quarter folded, the paper will fit into the little opening in the front apron. Quarter sawn white oak with a stain and clear coat were used for this piece.
The interior is entirely lined with aromatic cedar. There are lid stays to keep the top up and a safety bar on the right end to prevent an accidental closure while little fingers are under the lid.
This hope chest is done in African Mahogany with eastern white maple string inlay. It was carefully designed with input from the client to get everything just the way she wanted it.
This table is a shaker Windsor style hallway table done in red oak.
This table is a shaker style done in Hickory (Pecan) heartwood. It was built to match the decor of the kitchen behind it which I also built.
A note about my furniture: I build all kinds of furniture such as tables, chairs, bedroom suites, and everything in between. Since my cabinetry is "furniture grade" it is sometimes difficult to distinguish my furniture from my cabinetry but shown on this page are what is considered the more conventional pieces.
