This table is for my Dad, who taught me to sail. It's Mahogany with a compass rose inlay of maple, ebony, purpleheart, white oak and holly. Feb-Aug 2009

Jill needed a monitor stand that would be a specific height, so after deciding on that height with books and other spacers, I set to building this. Spring 2009

I really wanted to explore fretless bass, so it was easy to leap straight to "Well, why not just build one?" :-)

It was time for some nice, comfy chairs for us to enjoy. Pretty much had to be Morris Chairs of course. :-) The upholstery is by The Uphosltery Shop in the Spring Branch/I-10 area.

This table is made from some cherry sourced from property in my wife's family. Its design is inspired by several Stickley tabourets in a collection of articles from his magazine, The Craftsman.
