Rhinebeck is an adorable hamlet on the Hudson river about an hour and a half north of the city, it features colonial and gothic architecture, cute, bustling shops and an amazing Pilates studio.
I had the privilege of building the front desk for said amazing studio, in this charmed hamlet. It started with locally sourced, spalted Maple that was beautifully figured and had dark lines of “spalting”. Then, I added some birch Plywood to match the existing furniture. The final step was creating a “charging station” where students could leave their cell phones, while escaping into the Pilates peace of mind.

In about ten days I will host my biggest furniture show to date, the ONE TREE collection. This will be the culmination of over three years work as a furniture-maker in Phoenix. A week after the show I will be relocating to Clarkdale, AZ. This is a very special time for me and a great time to see the collection. It will be an awesome opportunity to see my progress as a furniture-maker, or a good first look at what I do. In either case, I look forward to seeing you there.
