My parents' home is filled with things my dad made. I would love to put together a catalog of his work, but this trip was much too short. The best I could do was take a few quick photos.
This little table was Dad's first piece. Mom wanted something for the entry way, so Dad headed out to a fancy furniture store in Beverly Hills. He found a table that would fit the bill, but instead of buying it, he took measurements and photos. He then bought a book on woodworking and figured out how to make it himself!
This lamp was made from a piece of Mexican ironwood. It sits upon a table that once belonged to Dad's mother.
Another table--I think Dad said this is his favorite.
Dad built this desk and shelf unit for Erin. It's still in her old bedroom.
A pen, a pencil and a crochet hook.
Dad's last piece was this little footstool.
It looks a bit humble compared to some of the other items, but it sure gets a lot of use!
