I will be joining potter Peter Brondz at his annual studio show and sale over Thanksgiving weekend. See the second image for details. Take a drive down the Turnagain Arm and stop in at his studio in Bird Creek. He and Jenny Nakao will have amazing pottery and I will have a selection of small things as well as a few small furniture pieces. I hope to see you there!
Occasionally I will work through some small but nice cut-off pieces of wood that I’ve saved and turn them into something as a way of making room in the shop. This time I worked them into sets of drink coasters to be used to protect your table tops and nice flat surfaces. There are 4 sets of 4 coasters here – one set of walnut, one of cherry, one of quarter sawn white oak and one mixed set of walnut, cherry, white oak and maple. They all have a distinctive cork insert 3 3/4″ in diameter. They are finished with the same finish I use on my furniture. $110 for each set, plus shipping. If interested in a set(s) use the contact page to let me know which set you’d like and to work out the purchase.
I’m honored to be a part of this book celebrating 10 years of support of Alaskan artists and craftspeople by the Rasmuson Foundation. It’s a beautifully produced book and an amazing collection.
Looking back on 2016, I realized I had a year of fun and challenging commissions and projects. Here is a collection of those.
Before gluing up the back for a cherry audio cabinet, I did a dry assembly. Here is the process.
During June 2016 I built and installed the whiskey rack or “Whiskey Tree” at 49th State Brewing Company in Anchorage, AK. This video is a timelapse of the installation.
This small piece is made of walnut and cherry and stands 13.5″ high, 9″ to the top of the dish. It is 9.5″ wide and 11″ long. It makes a great piece for the center of a dining table or any flat surface. The gouged dish can hold any small items – candy, fruit, business cards earrings, etc. $675.00
This dovetailed wall cabinet is made of maple with a walnut door pull. The door panel is made from a spectacular piece of figured curly maple. It is 23″ high x 10.5″ wide x 5.5″ deep. $1600.00
