By using interesting woods and adding details and subtle curves, I attempt to create a clean, refined piece that pays respect to the shaker traditions while incorporating unique elements.
Doug is a self-taught furniture maker and has been creating his original designs “with a connection to the past” for 7 years. He runs a one-man shop where he employs traditional joinery and subtle details, which help to give each piece a personality.
Doug’s process begins with client-builder dialogue, getting to know the need and tastes of his customer. He then chooses the wood he will be using, usually hardwoods, and once the design is set the piece is created. Doug takes great pride in his work and feels satisfaction in knowing that each piece is built with care and attention to detail and will be used and enjoyed for generations.
