|To the right, is a custom
designed bench. I named it
"The International Bench"
because of the materials used
to construct it. It has an Oak
Slate on the seating area and
diamonds made of Zebrawood
on the back of the bench. The
surrounding the diamonds are
Oak. Outside that is Mahogany.
It has a wax finish and is
smooth as a baby's..... The
slate is sealed with Lacquer. It
is a one of a kind project that
took a week to complete.

|This table is both art and useful. It was constructed using an existing piece of
marble removed from an old stand built by my son many years ago and placed into
a mahogany frame. It was built with loving care for my daughter-in-law as a gift for
Christmas 2005. To enlarge, click here.
|To the left, these stools were built as housewarming gifts. The stool on the left is
made out of recycled Oak and the one on the left is made out of recycled Redwood.

|I recently tiled our kitchen floor. I made a stool using tile the same tile as used on
the kitchen floor. Any piece of tile or slate can be used. The wood used on this stool
is mahogany. Any type wood can be used. Shortly, I will make a bench using 3 pieces
of slate or tile and add it to this site. To enlarge, click here.
|This is a set built for display. The coffee table and two end tables are made of a type
mahogany called red balau. Inset in each piece is marble that is black with greenish
white markings. The wood is finished with danish oil and then waxed. These items
are on display at our shop in Sun Valley, Ca. To enlarge, click here.

|The above are part of a limited production entitled the "Stakebed Collection." On the left is the step stool. (Click to enlarge.)
On the right is a medium size table. The material used for this is a wood called apitong. This wood is used for truck decking and
railings. The shop owner next to our shop was purchasing new slats and stakes from his stakebed truck. He was discarding the
old damaged and weathered stakes and slats. He asked me if I wanted them and I took them in and dismantled them. From this I
was able to make one step stool, one footstool, two medium tables and one larger table. The step stool went to my wife as she
can't reach the taller cabinets in our home. The above medium table went to my daughter, Monique, for her birthday present.
You may notice the holes in the wood. This was from the bolts that attached the slats to the stakes. The stakes are used for
legs and the slats are used for all other parts. The remaining items are the footstool, a medium table and a larger table. Those
will be on display on the page "Stakebed Collection".
