I made my first two tables from local sandstone and wagon wheels when I was a CU student in the late 60’s. I enjoyed it so much I started building tables again in 2010 when I went to a 1/2 time appointment at CU.

I work with thin (about 1/2 inch thick) sandstone slabs from quarries and stone yards in Lyons I use semi-precious stones I find at gem and mineral shows as focus stones to enhance the design. I’ve used wagon wheels, whiskey barrel hoops, and thin metal bands for the rims. I started out using hair pin legs from a local hardware store. I’ve expanded to use recycled steel bases of various sizes and shapes.

In the past eight years I’ve made over 100 tables, many of them designed in collaboration with the buyer. I have shown my tables at Open Studios, local art fairs and at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. I would enjoy making a table for you.
