8 arm chandelier

A chandelier in my kitchen.  The wood core is painted pine, the arms, pans and other parts are chemically blackened steel.  The power cord snakes through the hollow hook fastening the light to the ceiling.


Queen Anne Dressing table

Also called a 'Lowboy', this piece is based on a 1760 antique from Massachusetts.  It has single board sides and the drawers are dovetailed front and back by hand.  Finished in shellac.

Tea Table

Massachusetts tea table in cherry.  Based on similar examples circa 1780.  Finish is orange shellac over BLO with one coat of low gloss lacquer.  The candle slides can be retracted into the skirt.



Small chest of drawers

 Small chest of drawers, Tiger maple, dye stain followed by BLO and shellac.  Graduated drawers.  Hardware from Lee Valley.  Based on similar New England chests from the late 1700's.

Corner Cupboard, in cherry.  I made this piece many years ago and have just found a photo of it to post on the site.  The door contains 12 individual panes of glass, known as a divided light door.
