This custom designed cherry end table is based on a design brought to me by my customer. We discussed different options and made some changes. The table was built in the design of an apothecary cabinet, with drawers sized to store about 40 CDs each. It is built of all solid lumber with hand cut dovetails in the case and drawers. The primary wood is cherry with walnut accents and pulls. The secondary wood is poplar with solid aromatic cedar drawer bottoms. Each drawer is hand fit to ensure smooth operation. Walnut splines decorate the breadboard top. The piece is finished with a hand rubbed oil polyurethane to bring out the character of the wood and for maximum protection. Please check out my web site for more photos.
"Well we made it back to Indiana in one piece and so did the CD apothecary table. We have it placed in the family room, loaded with all my CD's (with room to expand) and it looks absolutely fantastic. The drawers are a perfect fit and work smooth as silk. After admiring it for a week I cannot think of one thing I would change. My wife says it is perfect.
I want to thank you for making the whole experience positive. You are true to your word and working together during the creative process yielded a beautiful and functional piece. The pictures and progress reports as the table was crafted were appreciated and I really enjoyed seeing the build process. Lastly, the craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality of construction is outstanding. You managed to exceed my expectations and I can tell you that is not an easy thing to do.
Aaron you are more than welcome to use me as a reference any time. I believe anyone commissioning a piece from you would be thrilled with the result.
Again, thanks for all you have done. I am sure we will be working together again sometime in the future."

Review of Mission-style stand-up desk
by Mark G. Oct 13th 2012
This was a different sort of project - an unconventional piece of furniture (a standing desk, set up for computer access) in a mission/arts and crafts style.
Aaron put in a ton of time at the front end to ensure that the design was exactly right. Tremendous attention to detail, and beautiful craftsmanship. Delivery coincided with the 2012 Fine Furnishings show, at which it was featured and highly complimented.
Aaron was a pleasure to work. Thanks again.
