  • For over thirty years, I have pursued a passion for building beautiful things from wood—from custom homes to cabinetry to fine furniture. As a carpenter and licensed building contractor, I have been involved in building projects with a particular emphasis in "sustainable" design and construction. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with a number of outstanding architects and interior designers.

    In 2003, having decided to devote myself full-time to the creation of fine furniture and cabinetry, I was one of sixteen students accepted into the prestigious Professional Furniture-Making Program at the Thomas Chippendale International School of Furniture in Scotland. While there, I immersed myself in the study of furniture history, design, construction and restoration, and had invaluable opportunities to visit and study Great Britain's most outstanding furniture collections, both public and private. At the conclusion of this intensive program I was recognized as the "Student of the Year".

    With a fully equipped woodworking shop in Virginia's beautiful Albemarle County, I am now engaged in a wide variety of interesting projects including designing and building commissioned furniture and custom cabinetry to developing designs for furniture, clocks and presentation boxes made from historical wood. As much as I enjoy the creative process of designing and building with wood, the most fulfilling aspect of my work is the process of collaboration that results in a satisfied and appreciative client.
    “Working with Craig was tremendously rewarding. He is that rare craftsman who is both an artist and a consummate professional.”

    “Craig gave us every opportunity to be involved and he made great suggestions for everything. He is very resourceful, skilled and easy to work with.”

    “I never realized collaborating on the design of a piece of furniture would be so much fun!”
