This cherry jewelry chest is made from recyled fire wood. I dug 3 half split cherry logs out of a pile of fire wood and put the band saw to them. They make up the top, bottom, both sides, back and dividers. The doors are cut from a piece of maple I found in the woods while fishing one day. Much to
… my surprise it was spalted and figured (curly). All of the drawer fronts are wormy chestnut which is salvaged from an old homestead in Fines Creek. The poplar used to divide each drawer is reclaimed from an old barn. The purple heart, which make up the drawer handles is purchased.
The stand is made from old cherry beams.
dining room table

We ordered a custom dining room table from Marty. He worked with us on design, taking our ideas and adding his own. He found old wood for the project and sent us a pix of the building it came from- lots of fun to see. He delivered exactly on time. The table has a beautiful patina and is well made, well proportioned and well designed. We love it. The only problem we had was that the leaves he delivered with the table were slightly too small. When we complained, he immediately took the leaves back and agree to re-make them at no additional cost. Haven't seen them yet, but my guess is that they will be perfect.

Marty produced exactly what I was looking for. He meshed my functional requirements perfectly with my style rerequirements and produced a TV stand and AV component system that was not available on the market and did it at a price well below what you would pay for smaller less capable units. Marty stayed connected throughout the design and build process. He provided me with timely information and options when decision points arose. On top of all that he delivered it to my living room free of charge.

Marty was fabulous to work with -- he really collaborated with me to create a design that was just my style even though I didn't come in with one in mind. Craftsmanship is very high quality. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! A few photos attached. Highly recommend working with him!!
