I own Forest Awakenings and handcraft fine hardwood boxes in my studio in Central California. While occasionally using lumber from commercial sources, I prefer to use recycled, repurposed, and urban lumber in my works.
One of the reasons I love working with wood is that trees retain their life long after leaving the forest. Sometime they just need a little help waking up. In much of my design work, I combine my affinity for classical western architecture with the challenge of letting the natural beauty of the wood show through. And throughout, I like to make the work touchable. So as you find my work out and about, feel free to pick a piece up let all your senses roam
Exploring the warmth and life of wood in all its beautiful variety.
Good afternoon, The ReStore is a good idea, I havent been there in a while. We are planning on using a queen bed, 60" wide and want it tall. Her ceiling are 12', think of a 1920's SF loft apt. I have access to a truck and own a gmc cargo van that is for sale, if you know anyone who needs a good work van? If you want more info on the van let me know. Just thought I would ask about the wood! Thanks
Thank you Douglas, for your nice words about my art. I wish, I had more time to paint, but between work and life, painting comes saddly,last. Your art is beautiful, I love the stoppers. Reading your information, it hit me that you might be a possible supplier of old wood? I am looking for old planks, old 2 x 4, to make a headboard? Rough, painted distressed all work. Thanks for your time, Brenda
