Knock-down armoire in cherry
I build my armoires like post-and-beam structures. The joinery is mortise and tenon. The pegs that secure the joints are not glued in. By removing the pegs, one can disassemble the entire structure so the sections can be moved piece by piece and put back together at another place. The carving is based on a tree that was in my customer's front yard and that she grew up with.
The design style is Arts and Craft and Chinese.

Stereo cabinet in mahogany

TV stand with Gothic tracery carving
This cabinet fitted my customer's wish for a TV stand. He wanted it low and the width of his TV with an interior that would house television appurtenances, such as DVR player, cable box, woofer, and a VCR player. The cabinet has a removable shelf (not shown here). The carvings are based on designs he saw at the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.

Sideboard cabinet, in cherry, with carved doors
This sideboard is based loosely on a cabinet designed by Charles Sumner Greene. His cabinet featured his own carvings on the doors and bottoms of legs. The door carvings on this cabinet replicate those on a 16th-century French cabinet. The leg carvings are the same as Greene's.
