A look at some of the pieces I've built

I have been making furniture for 40 years. For me it remains a hobby and not a business.   I am primarily interested in American period furniture from the mid to late 1700's as well as the work of the Shakers. Hand tools are used extensively in creating these pieces.

Hello. I love the site and especially the sack back with crest rail in green over red. I am having a chair made with milk paint and was wondering how you applied the oil coat. What oil was used and how was it applied. My email is william331ster@gmail.com. Thanks. Will.

Hi Will,

I apply the oil coat with a small cotton cloth and before it dries too much I wipe it off. For that chair I used Watco walnut coloured danish oil. It adds a nice depth to the colour.
