All storage units shown below have been  assembled in a manner that  allows for a continuous wood grain around all four mitered corners.  Stainless Steel inserts are commercial restaurant  quality.  While  the stainless steel units are very functional in any kitchen, the wood  housing adds a warmth and elegance that steel cannot provide to the home.

he largest is 7"W X 12.75"L X 6.25"H,  The deepest are 6" inside depth.  Others are 4" inside depth.  These are in both Cherry wood and Black Walnut.  A smaller unit that measures 7" L X 4.25" W x 4.25" H in Cherry wood completes the variations.

Black Walnut Napkin rings are 2" X 2" X 15/16" with a 1.25 diameter opening.

Leather band of 4 3/8" circumference with buckskin leather leaf with pyrographic leaf details added.  No two exactly alike.

Some of the leaf rings have a full-cicle of leather (left) and others have a slot-tie character as shown to the right and below.  The full circle work best if the fit is not too tight.  If the  fabric bulk is greater the slot-tie version is better.

In my judgement the Black Walnut wood rings are more suited to the desgin cotton fabric napkins and the leather leaf are better with the plain natural cotton napkins.

Simple brown-black leather bands without the attached leather leaf are also available but are not shown  here as separate items.

These are a series of boxes in birch wood with leaf / plant decoration burned into the  simple, blond wood.  I have used aniline dyes AFTER an initial sealer coat of Varathane.  When the wood is sealed the dyes, in a methyl hydrate solution, can be treated much as watercolour paints.
To the right is one of the boxes with the lid opened to show the simple interior.  Reference # 2361K, 2362K and 2363K.

Two music storage units. Each consists of a base trolley on casters, topped with three 16" X 16" X 32" modular units stacked, and then covered with an "envelope" frame consisting of a top, back and two sides. This envelope can be lifted off the storage modules to permit rearrangement or reorganization of the storage pieces since they are interchangeable. By changing the nature of the standardized modules, the total configuration can change instantly. Cost would vary with materials used. Shelving of MDF faced with birch and with a birch envelope is shown here. (Ref. Storage1

Birch "Memory Box" chest with boreal forest leaves carved in relief on the face. Black leather straps and snap closures. This was one of my earlier versions of the chest style box. The first one was in response to a request of a young mother for a "chest' in which to place her first baby "things", hence the term "memory box". $150.00 [Ref. MB3]

This unit is made from Manchurian Elm salvaged from a neighbour's wood pile. The lid is a lift off, no-hinge style. The Manchurian elm, when cut into boards and cured often will undergo ring separation and so result in useless lumber. However, when ring separation does not occur, the contrasting grain patterns make for a very attractive piece. It takes a great finish with multiple rubbings of tung oil-varnish. aniline dyes were used along the centre lines. $60.00 [Ref. NH1]

Oak custom stand for Marian statue for a church. Space was limited and it was to be located in a traffic zone, so a shape that would not snag or block passers-by was important. The centre section consists of 4 drawers. The drawer faces had a knobs turned on their faces and the concentric rings were decorative. The end support pillars are truned birch wood. Later another unit was requested along with riser / storage units to be placed below these.
