i’m in the process of digitizing the 4×5 color transparencies of the first 22 years of my furniture making career. they were shot by my friend, cook neilson, before he retired from photography in 2001, and i was forced to take it up as a ‘hobby’ on my own. in the process i’m upgrading the quality of the images and their stories on my blog. a couple weeks ago i posted some images of some sideboards here on lumberjocks and i thought i would do the same thing with some case pieces like the ones shown here. similar to the sideboards, i am collecting the images in a single post on my dorset custom furniture blog. there are about 15 pieces in that post now, and that post will be an ongoing project, to be added to as images and time to write become available. i have updated the sideboard post with new photos a couple times already, and intend to tackle my pre blog dining tables sometime in the near future. looking back on this stuff now, with most of what you see here from the 80s and 90s, is quite a trip. we have had an amazing collection of adventurous clients who were wiling to trust us to tackle an incredible range of styles, and i thank them warmly for the privilege.
