Farmhouse Trestle Table

Just finished this farmhouse trestle table for a client in Paso Robles, CA. Check out this slideshow (see below) that starts with the actual 1880’s barn the oak was salvaged from.

Steel-Clad Side Table

Today I dropped off this cubodron steel-clad side table at Ashley & Vance Engineering to go with one of my upholstered benches (that they already had). They finally got their logo up on the wood wall we did last year.Cubodron table / Half Moon Benchsee more from our cubodron accent table collection

Wine Country Installation

I did a little cabinet installation yesterday in Paso Robles, CA. This mini wet bar and table-style bathroom vanity were made for a local grape grower’s man cave. The client plans to have undermount sinks and black granite counter tops installed.

Made from reclaimed local douglas fir and finished with my “coastal drift” (grey) finish. Handmade steel handles on the cabinet doors.

Introducing the “Cubodron” Collection

After a lot of blood, sweat, and beers, I’m happy to introduce a new collection of accent tables: the “Cubodron” collection. “Cubodron” is short for cuboctahedron, the name coined by Archimedes for this geodesic shape (6 squares intersecting with 8 triangles). These unique tables are hand-clad with hammered metal on all sides, allowing them to be turned and positioned in any number of different ways. The metal has a beautiful rustic patina and a lightly hammered texture. Available in copper or steel.
