A few finished samples of Skip’s work are on display in our Studio. Pieces are done in a variety of solid woods–cherry, maple, walnut, pine and so on–and with a range of methods. Because Skip primarily custom builds to individuals’ requests, these items offer a good starting point for discussions about designing exactly what one would like. This collaborative process, from talking things over to drafting designs and completing estimates, guarantees satisfaction with the final result–a unique piece of furniture for a specific location, purpose or taste.
All Studio items are also available for purchase, with suggested prices for specific pieces noted below.
