Custom made furniture, cabinets and other furnishings for the private residence as well as the commercial environment.
Creating, constructing, building has always been very fulfilling to me. I built my first pieces in my early twenties. Simple and basic cabinets, though my friends liked them and were eager to have them in their homes. Later on I built a 14-foot sailboat from some simple drawings. I have to say that I had more fun building the boat than sailing it!
Woodworking is in my genes. I was born and raised in the Netherlands, where my father and uncle were both craftsman. I feel that through them, I inherited a sense for beauty, harmony and balance.
After a period of time spent in the managerial world a career change led to the Fine Woodworking Program at Haywood Community College in North Carolina.
In 2002 I started creating furniture in a small one-car garage. Since that time many, many unique pieces of furniture have been created for customers all around the country and beyond.
