"I really like taking traditionally cold materials and blending them into a warm space. We used Anigre panelling to flank the steel hearth."
Dyed White Oak Kitchen
"Cozy and functional glowing white light compliments gray dyed white Oak in this understated kitchen.
The client came into the studio and we mixed colors and woods to take back to the project."
Master Suite Closet
"This is a highly organized and smart use of a large space to make it feel organized but not clinical."
White and Wenge Kitchen
"I spend as much time as is needed working with the client to create paint and veneer samples.
Since I work with one client at a time I can spend quality time to create samples with multiple coats of stain decide finishes like this."
"I would love to wake up and enjoy the morning here. There were critical decisions and adjustments made that affected this project and
the results are stunning nonetheless."
Mahogany Cabinet Detail
"I built this cabinet inside of an old closet. The cabinetry was fitted with modern drawers and doors then faced with book matched mahogany panels."
"In the pursuit of modern furniture making I’ve employed torsion box technology, which is often used in airplanes.
The boxes create an incredibly strong and lightweight table. This large table measures 4 by 12 foot long"
"I was asked to produce a replicate of the original door and side lights for the former Bohemian National Home located in Detroit, MI.
We didn't have pictures or drawings of the original but were able to make an educated guess based on the moulding styles of the building."
"On the wet wall we have the dishwasher, sink and waste bin, the most used and demanding part of the kitchen in terms of moisture and dirt.
To ensure durability I use conversion varnishes, which are ideal for moisture and rough use."
Media and Art Center
"Dramatic lighting effects and classic modern lines create this Wenge showcase and media center.
All your components fit inside the base unit, and all wiring is 100% accessible but hidden."
Hidden Coffee Cabinet
"This clever built-in coffee maker slides out for service then pours out the perfect cappuccino or espresso, all ensconced in beautiful Wenge.
What appears to be cabinet doors to the right of the coffee unit is a single door to the butlers pantry."
"This island was designed using negative space to create opportunities to display art pieces in the kitchen."
Mahogany Cabinet Wall
"Stock Mahogany plywood we transformed this living room wall into a decorative storage unit."
"This is a period piece, right down to the gilded Corinthian capitals and columns. Much research went into making this fine but functional furniture.
All solid Walnut wood and Walnut Burl panels used through out this piece. Stained in traditional color and a hand rubbed oil and wax finish."
"A full service stove was installed along the wall plus a handy microwave/convection oven in the kitchen island.
I always consider the future when designing for a client, all these appliances are set up ADA complainant."
Vegetable and Bread Drawers
"Instead of using a panel at the end of this island I created a little charging station. Room for a radio,
tablets, phones and room for cook books. Next to that, bread and root vegetable bins."
"Making a 8' ceiling look tall isn't easy. Turning the Aniger veneer and Ann Saks glass tile to run horizontal,
along with long Aluminum drawer front handles, and buffed Bronze counter tops does the trick."
"Corner cabinets are often wasted space. I personally love this European hardware that maximizes the otherwise dead space.
Our goal is to ensure that every inch of space is utilized to the best of it's ability."
"Like all craftsmen one must at least respect the past and build upon those principals and techniques to create the future.
The Corinthian capitals were fabricated using a composite material. Then I applied real gold leaf using traditional old world techniques which included hide glue."
Anigre Wet Bar
"Here I made the modern version of a traditionally hidden space.
Much of the excitement in designing and building cabinetry comes from situations like this one, re purposing space to create cool new spaces."
Bones of a Kitchen
"This six burner with heavy duty griddle is supported and serviced by the strength of high tech white cabinetry. Our cabinets are dowelled, glued then screwed together.
Never compromise on engineering the boxes for maxim strength and durability."
