  12. Napa Wine Barrel Bistro Table

    I have made dozens of candle holders from barrel staves, but this was my first venture into wine barrel furniture. Because of all the curves and coves of each stave this turned out to be one of my most challenging projects. For a flair I decided to have the staves come through the top. In my...

    This is a bench I created for my entryway. In California we don't have Mudrooms…but with winter rain it still nice to have a place to drop your stuff. I designed this piece to be both practical and beautiful and I am really proud of this one. I wanted a place for us to be able to drop off...
