Chairs and Stools
This office chair has Bubinga legs with a back support made out of Curly maple, European maple and Walnut, as well as Cherry for the rails and a long hair cow hide on the seat. It provides great support while working at a desk. A deer antler shed is used as a chair pull.
2nd Office Chair
This chair includes a slice of agate in the back that is surrounded by Curly Maple on the top and the bottom. The curly Maple has smaller slices of agate on the back side. Walnut veneers adorn the top of the back and Canary wood from Central America function as the legs both front and back. Additionally the top of the back is overlapped with a hammered section of copper. The seat is made from a section of hairy cow hide. A deer antler shed is used as a chair pull.
The back legs are Figured Sapele, the front legs are Honduran Mahogany and the apron is Curly Maple. The seat and backs are covered with ostrich stamped leather. The back rail back is covered with walnut burl veneer. Walnut joinery plugs add extra detail to the back side of the rungs.
This bathroom seat has mahogany legs and a curly maple skirt. The top is adorned with thick foam and a beaver skin.
Dining Room Chairs
This chair has legs made from the African hardwood, Bubinga. A skirt made from American Curly Maple and Cherry and a back from Curly Maple. Perfect for sitting at the table whether playing cards or eating a fine dinner.
The back of the chair has a comfortable spot for pulling the chair out from the table. The contrasting hard woods blend well with the soft seat of leather stamped with an Ostrich pattern. Curly Maple repeats in the back skirt rail. Six of these chairs were made to fit comfortably around a 74 " x 30 " dining room table.
Ambrosia Maple Chair
This chair is perfect for use as a small seating area in the kitchen where notes are taken. It is also a good chair to use for a child.
2nd Ambrosia Maple Chair
This chair has a unique back that I joined at an angle. It sits under bar height yet higher than table height. It is perfect for that one of a kind table.

Child's Chair and desk
Using Ambrosia Maple with it beautiful grain pattern I reseated and backed this child's old school chair. Also using Ambrosia Maple I created a short table but this time I made a custom set of legs using copper tubing.
