These sculptures, are part of a series of three that display my fondness of the barn frame construction, (post & beam) with a functional wood chest of drawers.
I used naturally beautiful contrasting woods and colors, with functional and decorative wood joinery for the frame and chest.
The posts … and beams are maple. I used mahogany and oak, for the chests and rosewood for the accents. The handles are hand shaped.
The frame, with mortise & tenon joinery, is cantilevered, and supports the wood chest of drawers, that are functional.
They are a show piece of what I love about wood, furniture, architecture and design.
A few words about Furniture
Furniture can be a fun, creative and a functional expression of your life style.
There are 'simply', NO LIMITS as what can be designed and built.
We enjoy mixed media projects and have had experience in many materials, including natural stone, metals, leather, solid surface, plastic laminate, and glass, (etched, stained and beveled).
Whether the piece you want is traditional, contemporary, eclectic or artistic, as you've seen, we can built it!

The cabinet fits just perfect. All the little "cut out" details make a huge difference. Everything is so neat and tidy, no plugs or cables showing. We bolted it to the wall right away. It's really great looking, a naturally beautiful & unique piece we will always enjoy. It's so sturdy too. Keep up the good and creative work. Thanks for creating such a cool piece.
