FREE FORM DINING BASE



This table was just recently finished and shipped to a client out of town. It's shown bare and cleaned before the final finish of tarnished gold was applied.

COLD HAMMERED COCKTAIL TABLE


This is a table I made back in the late 1980's. Each piece of material was hand hammered cold. I doubt I have the patience or energy anymore to do that! The scrolls and wrapped stretcher were done with a torch. Personally I have yet to find a job where a torch was not as good or better then a forge. I get a lot of grief from peers who love their forges and rib me about getting rid of the one I had but never used. I just find it a waste of heat and energy when a torch gives the exact same results. I won't argue with centuries of tradition but I just had to put my two cents in!

WAVE BED





This is a bed I made for a couple who are friends of mine. The curved headboard is obviously the focal point here. I constructed a framework and covered it in sheet metal. It's hollow but still a hefty piece. The finish is polished and clear powder coated.

ARC TABLE BASE



This a particular favorite of mine. Clean and simple. The arcs are tapered which gives the piece a little extra interest. It is also extremely solid. The top shown is only a piece of MDF made to support the granite top that was added later. It's fabricated of steel, polished and clear powder coated.

TWIG BENCH



This is another collaboration with my friend Dan Searcy. He supplied the wood and we came up with this rustic but contemporary bench. The client actually uses it as a cocktail table. The finish is a bronze powder coat.

WOOD AND STEEL




We just finished these pieces for my friend Dan Searcy. Dan specializes in reclaimed wood. He does furniture and mantels among other things. These two pieces, both topped with solid Walnut will be down at the Cincinnati Convention Center for the 2011 Home and Garden Show.
The base for the dinning table has proved to be very popular, this being our 3rd version of it.
The wood on the wine rack/server is so massive we decided to come up with a piece that felt reminiscent of an old bridge.
