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.

From all us hobbyist it looks like you’ve have the greatest job ever, we just don’t see all the WORK that went along with all those projects! Its a real pleasure seeing anything you post, from your past projects to the new stuff your doing now. I,m sure you have a lot of fond memories from all the years of woodworking. I will always look forward to your next post!

Interesting (and very handsome) designs. The first one looks like “Arts & Crafts goes Pennsylvania secretary”. A fresh take (for me) on that type of cabinet. Excellent stuff !

Like what you are doing with the photographic work! It is important to do justice to work accomplished.
