Birthday Table and Chairs

Carole wanted to give her friend and landlord a table to replace the crumbling one in the yard.  She got a free set from another friend, and after I shored up the structure and refinished the table, Carole helped with the chairs.

Adirondack Chairs

I built these a few years ago, before the benefit of the shop and better tools.  I designed them to be BIG, so sitting in them is a commitment.

Stefanie's Table

I offered to make something for my niece, Stef, for finishing her Ph.D.  She wanted a table big enough to sit twelve so she and her roommates could throw dinner parties.  I made this one 86" x 40". 

(The benches are not mine.)

Reclaimed Tables

Chryss removed a couple of interior doors to open up her house, and as I was helping her move them into storage, I realized they'd make nice tables.  She said go for it.  With redwood left over from a treehouse Barbara built on the Mesa, plus tile from the Restore and Art from Scrap, all materials are reclaimed.

Redondo Bistro

My niece drafted her friend Steve and his truck to pick up the table I made for her for finishing her Ph.D., and Steve took one look and gave me my first commission. He wanted a bistro table, 36" square, with dark blue legs and 4" tiles. He left the rest up to me.
