The First Pieces

“Buoy” [Pictured Right] was the first piece of furniture that I had designed and created. In a way, it was a test chair, made from scrap wood and pine, to teach myself about the properties of wood and the basics of joinery and woodworking in general. “RH-CHI-12-DOUKAN” [Pictured Left] was the piece that followed. I designed it loosely based on Shaker design principles. Combining new and old, the seat is made from fresh ash that I milled from a childhood forest, while the frame is made from old growth salvaged pine from my current home of Chicago.
