wood and personality

There are a number of reasons we may suggest using natural wood as one of the mediums for your design. Perhaps the single largest reason is that wood has a personality all its own.  The cut, grain and finish all comprise the visual and tactile qualities that evoke a sense of this personality.  Each design we create carefully chooses the correct species for the mood and meaning.  We further enhance these with a hand rubbed oil finish to provide the warmth and character of the wood.

All of the woods shown below have there own natural beauty and coloring but perhaps more importantly they impart character.
