Namesake for a new style i am developing, 'Through the Forest, Lightly', this piece features a live edge top and subtle curves and angles in the legs. Nature is my inspiration here with carvings of the salamander and butterfly on the end panels.
Philadelphia Piecrust Tea Table, mahogany. The top is carved from a 33 inch wide solid piece of mahogany. The pedestal and legs feature exquisite carving detail. This piece won the 'Best in Traditional Design' award at the 2010 League of NH Craftsmen Living with Craft Exhibit.
Swooning Sofa, mahogany. An original piece designed with a client to fit in a specific spot with a specific intention, this unique chaise longue has elicited much joy for the family in its new home.
This paneled day bed was one of a pair designed to match a four poster bed belonging to the client in the same style. White Oak has a stunning figure when quarter sawn like these panels.
Horse Table, mahogany. Inspired by a South American piece and created for a horse lover and her family, this project included twin side tables (pictured above) and a coffee table.
Martha Washington Chair, mahogany. This elegant, simple and comfortable chair works well with most decor, even when in company of more contemporary styles.
Cadwalader Card Table, mahogany. Intensely detailed, this serpentine shaped table was almost entirely a carving project. Interestingly, the top of this piece was made from a log which had sunk centuries ago while transporting it down river to a sawmill in Belize.
Cliveden sofa, mahogany, originally built by Thomas Affleck around 1765. It features the unique carving pattern on the front and side rails called gadrooning.
‘Alice and the Woodland Table’ is the second piece in my new style, ‘Through the Forest Lightly’, featuring a live edge walnut top and carvings of a Grapevine and a Caterpillar on Bellwort on the end panels.
Custom Sheraton Style Dining Table, walnut. This custom piece features sheraton style reeded legs, beaded curtain and hand built slides to accept two extension leaves.
Newport Corner Chair, mahogany. One of my favorite chairs, its highly sculptural back and legs look amazing from any angle. It works beautifully for a single chair and is very comfortable.
Chippendale Style Table and Chairs, curly maple. The chairs are built in the Massachusetts Chippendale style with the unique owl pattern in the splat. The legs of the table are chippendale but the design of the table is built for today's needs, expanding on slides to accept 2 leaves.
Newport Tea Table, mahogany. This beautifully shaped table is a reproduction of a piece originally built by John Goddard of Newport RI in the mid 1700's. A rare feature is the space above the ball which brings a whole new dimension to the ball and claw foot. This piece won the 'Best in Wood' award at the 2011 League of NH Craftsmen Living with Craft Exhibit.
