This shaker-style queen-sized bed is Kyle's largest project to date. The frame is made of white oak with black walnut accents, and the headboard and footboard arches and styles are from spalted ambrosia maple. The bed comes apart for easy moving, however not a single steel component was used. All joinery uses traditional methods.

This Vermont-shaped serving board is made out of hard maple sourced from none other than VT, and features a Lichtenberg figure etching done with 12,000 volts of electricity. The etching is then inlayed with crushed chrysocolla stone, and sealed with epoxy. The entire piece is then sanded to a glass like finish and coated with beeswax and mineral oil, making this serving board ready to be used. These are currently available at the Champlain Islands Farmer's Market, in our online store, or by special order.
