- All Work Done in Our S. California Design & Build Studio
We design and build uniquely custom

era influences, to the rustic/modern fusion style of masters
such as George Nakashima, to contemporary with Asian influences.
Limited Edition Furniture
- From Our Extensive Design Library
- Client Customization Available
- Custom Quality and Craftsmanship
Limited Edition pieces are a cost effective alternative to custom designs. Occasionally, we build a limited quantity of pieces from our extensive design library. Specially-selected woods from our large inventory lend a uniqueness to each. Clients may be able to select materials and finish treatments in advance.
Sales of these pieces are limited to the material stock and/or finished items on hand and subject to prior sale through sources other than this website.
- Exotic Woods
- Large Natural ("Live") Edge Wood Slabs
- Local Urban Forest & Reclaimed Woods
a unique mix of natural "live" edge slabs
of domestic and imported exotic woods, veneers, metal, glass,
and sustainably-harvested materials including FSC®-certified woods, bamboo, Lyptus™ and
Kirei™. The commissions we produce represent
a level of quality, craftsmanship and an eye for design that
will be treasured by our clients for generations.
We are inspired
by the elegant simplicity of the works of the late master woodworker George Nakashima – how
he captured the soul of the tree from which his designs evolved. We strive to capture his style, spirit
and craftsmanship in the pieces we produce. Each
is one-of-a-kind, and like Nakashima's works, driven
by the influence nature has exerted on the woods
We carry a wide-rangeing
inventory of unusual and one-of-a-kind natural "live" edge wood slabs in a variety of domestic and imported exotic
hardwoods. From African Bubinga to Zebrawood, American
Black Walnut burls to Lace Redwood, from Mexican
Parota crotch to Cocobolo logs, and everything in between. Inventory changes frequently as new materials arrive from our suppliers.
New Limited Edition Design
Zensho™ Coffee Table
We've blended simple contemporary lines with a hint of Asian styling to create Zensho™. Each piece is made from sustainably-harvested bamboo and finished with a non-toxic stain and hand-rubbed zero-VOC oil process to a silky-smooth satin luster. Our exclusive Ebano hand-tooled texture and aged stain finish technique adds an exotic flair unique to the Zensho collection.

that requires all
our experience and creativity along with a healthy
dose of ingenuity to produce something truly
incredible. This contemporary
bench of macassar ebony and anodized aluminum was
designed for the CEO of one
of San Diego's high tech companies.
