Personally serving southern California with custom designs and quality craftsmanship that reflect the Arts & Crafts asthetic.

Garden and RV Gates (click images for larger view)

African mahogany double gate.

The gates were designed around existing hinges and hardware. The finish is Cabot Australian Timber Oil.




Rustic Style
Made from weather resistent cypress, I made 3 in this style for this customer. The surface is first wire brushed to bring up the texture, then distressed with dents, scrapes, and finally a blow torch. Finish is satin spar varnish. Iron clavos and brackets finish out the look.

Courtyard gates with insert.

The leaf insert was supplied by the customer. The natural Jatoba wood frame contrasts with the painted Carribean heart pine doors.

African mahogany side gate with fixed panel.

 Also with custom handle.  I did two of these for the customer. Finish is satin spar varnish.
African Mahogany gate.

This design has a window grid detail and custom handle. Finish is satin spar varnish.


Redwood and Jatoba double gates:

The top gate has gaps in the lower panel to allow the dog a view on the world! The finish is satin spar varnish on the Jatoba, and paint on the frame. This project also has custom handles. 



Greene & Greene style side and RV gate.

This is for my house. Redwood frame and mahogany ply panels. Finish is Behr exterior stain and satin spar varnish.
