PD White furnituremaker

I am a furniture maker that specializes in custom made wood furniture. When people think of making a piece of furniture they often think that the process begins with finding the right piece of wood or having a thoroughly drawn out design. While these factors are important, I have come to realize over the last twenty years of creating furniture, that it is working with the client that is one of the most important aspects of the design process for me. The pieces I create are a conversation. They work not only as functional objects to sit on, eat off of, place books on etc, but as a communication between myself and the individual I am designing for. In working through this process I find that what is most important is the conversation the piece originates from; and ends with when the project is complete.

What I try to accomplish with my work is to make each piece singly for the person who it is designed for. I use wood that is harvested locally and is generally taken from trees that are being removed by the city or an individual homeowner. In this way I am able to use a local material for local customers.

Silver maple table

This dining table is a new take on the classic tressle desgin - but it is inverted, giving the table a light, floating look. It is very stable due to the cross wood which takes up the lines of the table top. Can be made to any length, of any hardwood including oak, maple, walnut. Prices range according to size, starting at $ 2900.00
