Solid Mahogany framing with Sapele Veneer. Finish is toned Shellac with Transtint Red Mahogany Dye. Top Coat-Lacquer.
First piece out of the shop for 2016 was this Liturgical Credenza for Glacier Hills Retirement Center Ann Arbor
These are four pieces I built this year for an Ann Arbor client. The first piece as an Entry Hall Tree, followed by an Entry Bench a Napping Couch and I finished the year building the Bookcase.
This cabinet in Cherry was completged for a couple in Washington D.C. The case is designed around a stained glass panel the clients acquired and wanted to implement in the design. The upper case will hold audio components and the lower case will hold DVD's and CD's accessed by three drawers on extension slides.

The project production for 2016 featured Four painted pieces for a client couple from Ann Arbor, A Liturgical Credenza for Glacier Hills Retirement Center in Ann Arbor and a Cherry Cabinet with a Stained Glass Window for Clients in Washington D.C.
The project list for 2017 includes two new versions of the "Mancini Music Stands" that I built in 2014.
This Farmhouse style table is also on the list for 2017.
The table is a version of the "Dutch Pull Out Design"
The extensions reside under the top when closed and slide out and up when extended.
Work on this Buffet in the arts and Crafts style will begin later in January
Dear Friends, Family and Clients:
Sending you a warm greeting as 2017 has arrived.
May the Light of the World Shine for You in 2017
In the past year I did some teaching at the Canton, Michigan Woodcraft Store
In this class we learned how to make Cabriole Legs.
And in this class we learned how to cut inlays.
We are "adjusting" to having more family in California after Greg, Melissande and their five children moved to the San Fransisco area in late 2015. This past summer they traveled back to Michigan for a wonderful visit.
There are few joys greater than seeing your children as friends with each other.
Spencer and Rebekah's daughter- Beatrice turned 2 in October.
In December Eileen and I flew to California to spend Christmas with Seraphine, Rowan, Marjorie, Lyriel and Warrick.
Eileen and I drove to Washington D.C. to deliver this cabinet. We had just enough time to see the Library of Congress-where one of the clients works.
We spent a couple of days with good friends from college-Annette and Philip.
Annette sings with the Choirs at St.John's Lafayette Square-across from the White House. She made arrangements for Eileen and I to sing with the Parish Choir's weeknight rehearsal. What a Treat!
