Conference table in block mottled makore for an investment firm.


Plain-sliced makore wall panels and poplar (painted) millwork for the same place


Built in casework at the same place


Puppet Theater for a library in Maryland


Circulation desk for the same library in Maryland


46' x 22' desk produced for Bergen County courthouse in New Jersey


Store displays built for the New Jersey aquarium.



I have a mobile sawmill too so I can cut my own wood to use or resell. In this pic I'm sawing a clear cherry log from a dead tree at my brother's house.


Hope that helps get your thread started.
I just found this thread. I'm on TW all they time and still fine new interesting threads. Beautiful work I do have a question. I work in Bergen County NJ and I C U have done work there but live in IN- question is how do you get the work and do U come to NJ 2 do it or make it, ship it and then put it together. Again U do beautiful work - that being said there are custom cabinet makers in NJ so how do U beat them out. Thanks for any reply. Curious George.

The latest is a built-in entertainment center/bookcase/storage-thingy I just finished (the little wine rack isn't part of it--we just need to figure out where to put it):


I designed it using google Sketchup and went through lots of design changes along the way. It's a great program not just for working out a design but also figuring out how it will all fit together and the order of assembly (particularly since I don't do this for living and sort of figure it out as I go). Many costly mistakes have been avoided!


and a built-in bookcase with a display case I did for my in-laws:


And a kayak just for good measure:


I'm about to start on a trestle table using a 6' x 4' x 3" slab of wood I acquired a while back that's been sitting around waiting to be made into something. I'm not even sure what species it is, but it weighs a friggin ton.
"And a kayak just for good measure" way cool anybody can have a fiberglass kayak.

Not my handiwork (by a long stretch), but a housewarming gift from inlaws. About 12" tall and 8" across top.
