I grew up in a 200 year old house filled with Antiques.  I spent a lot of time refurbishing  old furniture, so the rustic thing just sort of comes easy to me.  Using reclaimed wood also helps  make Antique replicas  more authentic.

I just love the `Live Wood' look, no two pieces are ever the same.  Unique and beautiful furniture from hand selected limber.  Sometimes, I just sit back and follow the grain for hours feeling the trees history.

Not only did I restore all the furniture in the old house, I spent an enormous amount of time renovating the house.  One can really learn a lot about old school craftsmanship by dismantling old furniture and houses just to put them back together again.  Saying this, I have honed in on these experiences to create timeless cabinetry using traditional woodworking skills. 

I am a huge fan of George Nakashima.  Combining woodworking craftsmanship, live wood technics and the influences of my travels and the Far East.
