  6. Music Theater with curved oak stage

    This was a project that was a wild ride to say the least. The owner already had a show booked before we started. Long days commenced right away. I didn't see my kids awake for almost 2 months.

  11. Purple People Eater - Purpleheart Bentwood Ring with silver glass inlay

    Okay okay, I know…Texas A&M colors are maroon and white but this is what an Aggie fan ordered and who am I to argue? :) The silver glass inlay really snaps, crackles and pops! When outdoors in the sunlight the glass is super brilliant and looks like it's battery operated…lol. Purpleheart is...
  12. Now THAT's A BOX!

    For those familiar with Shaker box sizes from John Wilson, this is a size #17 box. I spent a week with John in Charlotte, MI in April. Bending this box is definitely a two man job. We bent three of these beauties. The box measures 32" x 24" x 12". The band is curly cherry; top is curly...
