Tom's work is influenced with a deep respect for the furniture craftsmen of the 17th and 18th centuries. Their knowledge of form, balance, joinery and of wood movement is evident in the pieces of fine furniture that still exist today. He relies on shared expertise of those craftsmen from long ago and those of today, who continue to up hold a quality of excellence in creating traditional fine furniture of heirloom distinction. He uses only solid hardwoods throughout each piece, always reading each board’s grain pattern and figure to determine its best use in creating an attractive and functional piece of quality furniture.
