Celebrating 25 Years of Woodworking

This month marks 25 years that I began my woodworking career. Fresh out of high school in 1987, I applied for an apprentice position at Sway's Wood Products in my hometown of Brooksville, FL. Since that time, I have built cabinetry and furniture in Florida, Georgia, Ohio and Colorado. While working in those states (for other woodworkers) my craftsmanship has been shipped to homes in several other states. The majority of my tenure has been spent in Colorado, with my work going into homes in Aspen, Snowmass Village, Telluride, Ouray, Crested Butte, Steamboat Springs, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Silverthorne, Buena Vista and several other small towns in Colorado. I have just been commissioned to top my Long's Peak Gun Cabinet by a gentleman in The Lone Star State. Look for pictures and details about this signature piece in the coming months! It is an exciting new year with a lot of opportunity for The Knotty Woodworker to put heirloom quality furniture into the home of my clients. Thank you for dropping by my blog and checking out the happenings. If you are looking for custom one of a kind heirloom quality furniture, I would be flattered if you called me and discussed your needs. Happy New year!

A bedside chest

I was asked to build a small chest to sit between the two beds featured in my blog post below. It is a simple design, yet the quality is impeccable. Solid wood construction, even in the drawers.
Using some of my choice pieces of Beetle Kill Pine, the chest has a lot of brown in the grain, giving the piece an overall darker tone.
The drawers are made from 5/8" thick solid Beetle Kill Pine and features Blumotion undermount soft closing slides. They are full extension, meaning that the drawer comes all the way out of the cabinet for access.
The handles were cut from small limbs and burnished so that they looked whittled but feel very smooth in the hand.










Whatever your need is; picnic table, what-knot shelves, bookcases, etc., The Knotty Woodworker has over 20 years experience in woodworking and a plethora of fresh ideas to help make your house a home. Give me a call at 303.246.4766 to discuss what I can do for you.

Platform Beds

The Knotty Woodworker builds all types of indoor and outdoor furniture. Our specialty is Beetle Kill Pine. Recently I was commissioned to build a couple of simple farm style twin beds for a home in the Keystone/Breck area. This was actually part of a bigger job that included a bedside chest as well as a coffee table for te living room.
The design is quite simple. Using plate joinery, the head and footboards are strong and sturdy and will last a lifetime. Take a look at the pictures and see for yourself that having a piece handcrafted by The Knotty Woodworker will not only be built well, the beauty will rise above other beetle kill pine furnishings that are available. With well over 20 years experience, The Knotty Woodworker can meet your every desire in buying a piece of quality furniture.

The Difference

The difference between manufactured furniture and handmade furniture from The Knotty Woodworker is phenomenal. That leaves out the fact that a piece of furniture handcrafted with The Knotty Woodworker's more than 20 years experience is available at very affordable prices. My pieces are more costly than the warehouse items, but that is only in the initial purchase. The stuff you buy that comes from factories will not last, so you will have to purchase the same items again in the future. With my 5 year guaranty on materials and craftsmanship, you can rest assured that what you have me build will belong to your grandchildren one day.
It is all about consumer wisdom. You can pay $600 for a dresser at a retail outlet and in 2 years it will fall apart. That is after you "settled" for what they had to offer.
Or, you can have me build a dresser to your exact specification in wood species, dimensions, and finish and pay slightly more. Not only will the furniture be an expression of who you are, you will never need to replace it. It will be a family heirloom and last for generations. Also, since it evolved from your imagination and my craftsmanship, it will be the only one like it. That is an incredible value.
I know in these times we have to look at the bottom line and scrutinize it, that is just smart spending. However, if you look down the road just a little, you will see that the best value for your dollar along with the most satisfaction for each dollar you spend, the only intelligent answer is in a handmade, heirloom quality, ne of a kind piece of furniture from The Knotty Woodworker. Before you spend your hard earned money on less than desirable furnishings, just call and talk to me. You will be amazed. Really. 303-246-4766
