It may be true, for the most part, that a cabinet isn't really any more than a box to put "stuff" in; but the kind of box you put that "stuff" in speaks volumes about who you are, what you value and how you approach life. Welcome to my webpage and thank you for visiting.


I have an M.F.A. in professional scene design and set building, but after years of throwing perfectly good lumber and theater set pieces in dumpsters at the end of the run, I really wanted to use my skills to build something that would last for generations, not weeks. Moving to Ft Bragg in 1988 and starting work for a great local cabinet maker turned my whole professional career around.


Today I build custom cabinets: kitchen and bath, entertainment centers, workstations, display cases, desks, headboards and other pieces either of your design or mine. I am certified as a DuPont Corian ® fabricator and installer and am licensed by California as a cabinetmaker, license # 670117.


Not everything photographs well, and some of my projects not included on the website include seven foot high shoji screens on tracked devices, a custom floor to floor ladder for tank house living (crafted from redwood and fir with copper tube handrails), and four wall walk in showers custom fabricated in Corian®. Thanks to my theatrical training, I am proficient in faux finishing, stain coloring and grain and shade matching, and unusual construction techniques requiring creative thinking. I also repair structurally or cosmetically damaged cabinetry. I only work for one customer at a time and that customer is my only priority.


Please consider me for your woodworking needs. I am resourceful, work with high quality materials and tools, place a high value on quality craftsmanship, and am motivated to get your job completed to your satisfaction.
