New work

This is a new jewelry box I came up with after getting feedback at the Lincoln Center show.  I spoke with a woman and she recommended I make a larger size.

I brought the "TO THE LIFEBOATS"  cabinet to the Artrider Productions craft show in Morristown N.J. last month and it went home with someone on the first day.

The two work tables were found by Stephanie and me in a basement in Danvers MA.  They were in really rough shape and it took some work to rehab them.  They both came out beautiful.

People fall in love with the details...

Armoires + End Tables made from Factory Finds

Sometimes, as a picker + collector, you hit the proverbial, score!
I had the good fortune to pick from a now defunct Massachusetts Organ Pipe Factory.
I sourced all kinds of great metal + wooden elements.

These are some of the finished pieces; Armoires + End Tables,  headed to Chantilly, VA at the Dulles Expo Center, FRI- SUN, 1/25-1/27.  This is my first show in the DC Metro Area!

Wood + Hardware from a Massachusetts Factory

Pair of End Tables/Night Stands from antique wood, ceiling tin, hardare + cool light fixtures from Harvard University!~

I thought it would look really cool as a night light.

We found random stuff in the Organ Pipe Factory: my partner arranged vintage baby shoe forms we found onto an old organ pipe shipping crate. 

I make console tables from these 1800s shipping crates for organ pipes.

We found so many wooden shoe forms too.
