This was a pretty cool chair, built custom for some folks I met at a show. I built a little table off one side that can be an arm rest too and let some roots go wild at the top to hang things from. Built from cedar roots, the seat is a big chunk of root too, I love the compression grain in a good root bend its always a treat to put the finish on and watch the ripples pop. The last picture is my brother, sometimes I can talk him into taking his shoes off and sanding awhile.

Thanks LJ’s

I am so glad that you do the work you do, and get paid for it :) It is your eye and maybe good luck that enables us to see these pieces in a new form. By luck I mean finding these gifts from nature. But it might be that’s where you live?

Nice design, great eye movement and color. I am soooooo envious of your talent. LOL!

This is really cool. Takes a whole different type of imagination to create these.

Looked at your website. Very impressive work. You also accel at doing photos of your products. Something that I know I personally stink at. My hats off to you for all you do.

Beautiful natural lines. I love the little detailing highlighted in the 5th photo. Cool… really cool chair.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Great creation. I didn’t realize how tall it was until I saw the last photo of your brother standing on the seat.

-- Every step of each project is considered my masterpiece because I want the finished product to reflect the quality of my work.

of all the chairs I’ve seen in my life, including Maloof’s, I really think I’d prefer to have one of yours than any of the others. Just outstanding work man. You are at a level of your own.

I really don’t even want to comment on your projects anymore because I pretty much injure my chin on my keyboard every time I look at your pictures :))))) Words to describe what you do just completely and totally fail me.

Keep em’ comin’.
