Hand crafted cherry bowl with natural edge.Displayed Chris's woodturnings at the Haile Plantation Farmers Market this morning. Little bit breezy and cold but, that did not stop folks from coming out to purchase wonderful fresh produce, and shop for hand made holiday gift from the arts and crafts booths. I was delighted to have sold six of Chris's beautiful hand crafted woodturned bowels. Come on out every Saturday 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.

I've added another dimension to my woodworking. I got a lathe in January 2012 and started turning bowls. I always wanted to do wood turning. Here are a few samples of my woodwork turnings.

I am currently working on an entertainment center, it is solid wood construction with a black lacquer finish with cherry accents. It will be a build in unit with crown molding in black lacquer with a cherry strip to enhance. This unit is going to be breath taking. These are progression pictures. The unit will be installed soon. Check back for the final product. 

Custom remodel inside Fleetwood Coach

My customer has a Fleetwood coach called the Providence and wanted to do some custom woodwork upgrades. The TV was mounted in the front of the coach between the driver and passenger seats. The providence extends out from the back of the driver seat all the way back to the end of the coach where the bedroom is. Right behind the drivers seat is a beautiful leather couch, so to watch television they would have to turn there heads to the left.

The next photographs will show right behind the passenger seat a small couch was removed. The area was replaced with a custom made desk with a TV bracket right in front of the couch for watching TV comfortably.
