I combine figured burls with geometric shapes.I believe this elevates the natural edge material.



The process I use in building my boxes is subtractive. I build the piece larger than I need,and then I use bandsaws,grinders and sanders to develop the final shape. This technique lets me work with the natural figure in the wood. The process I use in my mirrors and tables is a combination of organic and geometic. I use figured woods and burls combined with geometric shapes. I believe the geometric details elevate the natural shapes of the wood. I try to use environmentaly friendly woods whenever possible. Much of my material is salvaged wood from Western North Carolina.
