I am a self taught woodworker, designer, cabinet maker, woodturner and more.
I have been creating custom high-end furniture and a variety of woodwork for private residencies, museum exhibitions and commercial projects for the last 20 years.
I began as a part owner of a firm building museum exhibitions, acquiring a wealth of experience working with many different materials and techniques. In my role as general manager of production i was in charge of overseeing sub-contractors and in-house production teams, and managing complex projects building large permanent exhibitions.
Early 2000 i opened my own business, creating one of a kind custom furniture and woodwork.
With time and growing demand from my customers, more of my work incorporated natural edge slabs that i was milling. My workshop quickly grew and expanded to milling and selling natural edge slabs.
From the time i was a child i knew i wanted to work with wood.
Born 1969 in Bangkok Thailand. Traveling at an early age to central and north America,
spending periods of childhood in El Salvador and Jamaica and growing up in a rural suburb in Israel, I was exposed to many different cultures and surroundings. Influenced by European artistic traditions, middle eastern ancient and current architecture,
and above all – inspired by the ever present world of nature.
My craving led me to the very beginning of every wooden object – The Tree.
I was in a journey to understand and learn as much as i could about wood. I began collecting logs from windfalls and urban developments, and milling them. There is a whole world of knowledge to the process of milling, drying and creating things from wood.
Later on in my 20’s i began reading fine woodworking magazine, and through it was introduced to the masters of American Woodworking. Of great cultural artistic and professional influence to me were books by James Krenov, Tage Frid, Sam Maloof, George Nakashima and others.
I am always driven by my (sometimes too big) curiosity for understanding how things work.
I find new technologies, machines, materials and methods fascinating, but i am also completely in love with time honoured techniques of working wood with hand tools, joinery and finishes.
I think combining all available methods and technologies opens up creative options and elevates the quality of the end product.
