Without question, the most complicated thing I’ve ever built (especially the 10-piece section beneath the sink), this deco-inspired set of cabinet doors is made from Jatoba/Brazilian Cherry cut and pieced together in patterns I like to think of as offset symmetries, then dyed red as sin with solvent dye, rendering bold patterns subtle, as you can see below.
And the prototype that started it all:

Because what bar can’t use an extra fifteen feet of shelving? Made from construction lumber and scrap plywood, 13 1/2″ H x 60″ W x 15 3/4″ D. You can visit them at Bar Harbor in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.
I was delighted to accept this commission for my local neighborhood used book store (Pegasus Books in West Seattle), as in my other life I am a writer of fiction and occasional non-fiction, and an avid reader going back more than four decades. Built to spec from Armor-core walnut plywood and walnut planks cut into a subway tile pattern, and featuring two locking cash drawers, two office supply drawers, an integrated power strip and CPU platform, and about 27′ worth of 10″ deep shelving, I am very happy with how this 84″ x 33″ x 24″ sales counter/bookshelf/desk turned out. I also built this sturdy matching stand for a card catalog and three shelves with flared sides to hold books up (the third isn’t shown, as it had to be trimmed before I could install it, and I did not take pictures after).

I bought a small lot of live-edge alder planks from the widow of an old shop neighbor, and built this 2′ x 4′ coffee table as a floor model for maker’s markets. The planks are nicely figured, and every outer edge is a live-edge. Complementary stains on horizontal and vertical surfaces give this otherwise rustic piece a subtle hint of edge.
This item is for sale.
Live edge locally-sourced alder wood coffee table, 2' x 4' x 18"
Scrap Walnut, Cherry, Mahogany, live-edge Maple, 52″ L x 30″ W x 31″ H, with removable legs, foot-rest, and 30″ W x 24″ D x 3.5″ H Birch storage drawer. Composite surface and footrest. Shaped end-caps to match live edge sides.
I made this for a writer/artist who needed a worksurface that could double as a dining/gaming table when guests were over. Needed a nice, deep drawer to store art supplies, and removable legs for moving in and out of tight spaces.

One of the more idiosyncratic things I’ve built, for the same clients as these built-in bookshelves. Douglas Fir and Birch Plywood, new material. Built onsite under a rain shelter, with the client’s chickens to keep me company.

Douglas Fir, new material. Integrated windowsills.
I built these between shop spaces, and so did all the work onsite, in the yard, under an REI shelter. There were chickens.
