I successfully avoided the Hurricane Katrina celebrations, but didn't escape it entirely. I suppose it's appropriate that this table came in for restoration last week. It survived the flood and has waited 10 years to get a new life.

Looks like I'll be doing some caning.

This custom baby cradle is made of walnut and bound for Illinois. Got to carve some new designs into the ends of this one! Baby isn't due for 2 weeks, so getting it out just in time.

Making spindles for the next cradle. This is the bag of shavings at the end of turning 40 spindles. It's taking shape!

These look like normal rush seats, but they are not. Normally this pattern is created by weaving one continuous strand around the frame. These required 4 strands to be woven at the same time - two going up and down, and two going side to side. The end result looks similar, but it ends up being a greater challenge! The new rush is much stronger and will last much longer.

These four stools were refinished to match new kitchen cabinets, and three of them needed new hand caned seats.

The material used on these two chairs was so weak that it just fell apart. The chairs received new fiber rush seats which are much more durable.

I'm catching up with a few smaller projects before starting the next baby cradle construction. This is a little bentwood rocking chair that the client used when she was a child. Now her daughter will be able to use it as well. My caning process sure gets slower when I don't do it for awhile!

I finally finished and delivered the Maloof inspired sculpted rocking chair to match the baby cradle I finished a few weeks ago. These chairs are a great challenge to construct, and extremely comfortable to sit in. My customers were very happy, and their beautiful baby girl seemed equally pleased to lay in the cradle and be rocked in the chair.

My custom baby cradles are one of my specialties. Every one is different and I encourage the customer to add their own personal touches to the details. This one features Celtic carvings on both ends and is made of mahogany.
