Welcome to my worksite.
Handyman , smaller renovation work, design/construction of art studios, builds custom zen-contemporary furniture, indoor tables, outdoor tables, faceted windows, concrete bath and shower tiles, concrete chimney surrounds, stained glass and fine arts paintings.
My furniture combines concrete, steel, wood, river rocks and seashells into industrial zen sleekness.
Repurposed materials (cabinets, sinks, lights etc.) saves money and the environment.
I like salvage yards.Small projects make me happy.
I am a local Chicago craftsman- from the Avondale neighborhood.
