Blossoms and the Bee, a sideboard in mahogany, in the series 'Through the Forest Lightly', is designed around the central curved panel as a canvas for carving. Highlighting the importance of butterflies and bees in pollination and the natural cycles of nature, this piece is for sale and part of the proceeds will support the Forest Society of NH's work in protecting our wildlife.
Boston Style Bombe Desk, mahogany. A scaled down version of an important American Chippendale piece, this beautifully proportioned Bombe desk features the Boston style ball and claw foot with the swept back side talons and several hidden compartments in the interior.
Newport Style Desk on Frame, mahogany. This is my interpretation of what the Newport makers might have done if they built a desk on frame. This piece won the prestigious 'Best in Wood' and 'Public Choice' awards at the League of NH Craftsmen fair in 2008.
Spice Chest, walnut. This small chest with its many drawers and cubbies is about 20 inches tall and really highlights the incredible piece of walnut crotch on the door.
Sheraton Style Sideboard. In this custom designed piece inspired by the Sheraton style, I combine crotch veneer, inlay and carving details with the shaped front to create an exciting and fun piece.
Mini Chest, walnut. Standing at about 30 inches tall this reproduction piece took the fancy of a client who loves all things 18th century.
Sheraton Style Desk, mahogany. Custom built and designed for the clients needs and taste, this piece incorporates elements of the Sheraton style.
Newport Highboy, cherry. Built on spec, this beautifully proportioned piece is a reproduction of a John Townsend design, one of the Newport masters.
Philadelphia Lowboy, mahogany. Built on spec, the intricately carved apron, knees and drawer front and elegant proportions really make this a stunning piece.
Newport Kneehole Chest, mahogany. The Newport makers mastered the block front shape by terminating them with the carved shells. The smooth curves and beautiful shape of the shells give a softness and grace to the piece.
Boston Bombe, mahogany. With the serpentine shape and the swelling bombe, this sculptural piece really brings out the grain of the wood and is one of my favorite pieces- beautiful from any angle.
Newport Kneehole Desk, mahogany. One of my favorite pieces, I love the blocked shape flowing into the feet and the tombstone shape of the frame and panel door.

Newport Tall Clock, mahogany. Built for a clock collector who has a passion for period furniture, this piece enjoys pride of place as one of his favorites clocks.
Newport Secretary, mahogany. Originally designed by Christopher Townsend of Newport, RI, the flowing shapes of the interiors, many details and perfect proportions make this a masterful piece. Hand carved lopers were locally cast in brass especially for the piece.
Oxbow Desk, mahogany. The beautiful shaped form of this piece accentuates the grain of the wood.
