mid century modern lounge chair

This is my reproduction of a Folke Olhsson Model 72-Lounge Chair for Dux, 1950s. The original I was working from was made from Teak, which was a common species for mid-century modern furniture. My version is made from quarter sawn zebra wood which reveals some pretty exciting grain patterns. I had the cushions custom made and selected a fabric that had some nice color pop and contrast.

Height: 27″ (top of back cushion)
Width: 31″
Depth: 33″

walnut tv display stand

Some friends had several walnut boards that came from a family farm, and wanted a TV table made from them for one of their daughters. Since the boards were only 3/4″ thick and I wanted the wood to stand out visually, I added a 2″ tall beveled frame around the top. The base is 2″ and 1″ welded angle iron with wax finish.

walnut rocker

This walnut rocker is based on the chairs made by the legendary furniture designer and maker Sam Maloof. I learned from Maloof at classes he taught at Highland Woodworking (formerly Highland Hardware) in Atlanta, watching videos and reading his books and articles. The overall flow of lines, sculpted seat, joinery and laminated rockers are all hallmarks of Maloof’s original chairs.

live edge table

Years ago I had to remove a cherry tree which grew where my workshop was going to be built. I had the log sawn into boards and let air dry in my shop and for years pondered about I would make with them. The log had a slight curve which translated to the boards, so I decided to make a dining table and keep the natural curve in the design. The minimalist steel base keep the open space between the boards.
