While I do turn and carve one-of-a-kind bowls, vessels, and sculptures; as a custom woodworker, most of what I do is based on client commissions.  Helping people realize their desires or fulfilling their needs is a large part of the great satisfaction of what I do. Need a stunning hollow architectural column, an intricate carved newel post, or 200 spiral stair balusters?  I can do that for you.  Do you want a special bowl or hollow vessel for a wedding or anniversary present designed just for you? I can do that.  Did that venerable tree with which you grew up finally succumb and you would like a special keepsake by which to remember it?  I love to do that!

 

You may choose one of my designs or use one of your own.  I can work from an idea or vague memory, a tiny picture, an architectural rendering or scale drawing, or anything in between.  If there is a piece that is the wrong size or color for you, I can make one that fits your space and your wishes. Bear in mind however: no two pieces of wood are exactly alike, but that is part of the wonder and beauty of the medium.
