Looking for something special? Perhaps you see something on this site or in the gallery that strikes you. Or maybe a similar style but different woods, size, or configuration. We can trade thoughts and ideas by phone or email, or in person at the gallery. Once we have a design, I can quote a price for you. To get started, I require a 30% deposit on custom orders, with the balance due at time of shipment/delivery. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the gallery at 262 378-9255 to discuss your requirements. Below are some examples of prior commission work.
My favorite works are jewelry and keepsake boxes, and this gallery contains examples of pieces that I have produced. My objective is to create a visual appeal, while at the same time providing a box that is both functional and built for permanence. I don’t have a favorite wood or design. Rather, I am interested in the vast variety of colors, figure and unique patterns that can be found in woods, and look to leverage and combine them in the final piece.
Sometimes a jewelry box grows up, or needs a platform to rest on. So over time I have included free-standing jewelry tables and armoires in my work, as well as small tables that can either stand alone, or serve as a base for a companion jewelry box. Here are some examples. Those available for purchase are marked accordingly. Larger pieces such as these cannot be shipped at this time, but are available for pickup at the gallery in Mukwonago.

His passion for and knowledge of our National Park System provided him with numerous volunteer opportunities that he embraced and found joy in sharing numerous parks with visitors. His journeys took him across this country and abroad as he captured wonderful photographs of nature’s wonders and checked destinations off his “bucket list.” Jeff shared his photos through emails to family and friends as he traveled. Not long before his passing, he agreed to provide some of his images to incorporate into a special series of photo memory boxes. For some, the scenes may be reminiscent of a cherished vacation. For others, a reminder of the beauty and diversity of our Country. In Jeff’s memory, and…
I made one of these racks for our home, and then others asked me to make one for them too. The modular racks are made of furniture-grade red oak. They are designed to let you start small and add as much bottle capacity as you need over time. Each layer of storage accomodates either 4 or 6 bottles. An optional solid oak table top adds additional functionality if desired. Wine racking can be shipped UPS and easily assembled when received. Please contact us for a brochure with complete configuration information and pricing.
