Scroll down the page and enjoy a selection of Koa dining tables, coffee tables, rocking chairs, benches and other works that are now on hand.
For every final showpiece or commission that gets built, there may be dozens of ideas that live only in my sketchbook. There are also designs that I simply enjoy building and tinkering with and often, a unique piece of wood will suggest a direction. I'll just go ahead and build something out of this pool as time becomes available in the shop. Sometimes these pieces will fill an immediate need, and sometimes they just are there to begin another conversation, and start the process all over again. Many of these pieces can be seen up at my studio, and others are at selected galleries on the Big Island. Feel free to contact me to arrange to see any of them.
