Darrell started his woodworking career making and selling small wooden items at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. To broaden his experience, he then worked for several years in various high-end custom shops throughout the Puget Sound area. In 1989 he discovered the American Arts & Crafts Movement and in succession was captivated by the works of Charles and Henry Greene. With over 30 years experience in the woodworking field he has an extensive background in both commercial and custom furniture making. He has written for Home Furniture, Today’s Woodworker, and Fine Woodworking magazines. His first book; Greene and Greene: Design Elements for the Workshop is due to be published by Linden Press in February or March of 2006. His work has appeared in various galleries; has been featured in both local and national newspapers, magazines, and books; and in private collections throughout the US. Although Greene & Greene is Darrell’s primary inspiration, James Krenov, Thomas Chippendale, and Gothic furniture have also influenced him in one way or another.
