More About the Creative Process

Although I do not sell design services, a large part of my job is to adapt to and support your design process.

In some cases you may have complete design drawings developed. In that instance, I would review the details and simply submit a bid according to specifications.

In another situation, you may be starting with a concept and the overall design context of the interior space. On-site meetings are not uncommon. Individual circumstances would determine the steps needed to understand the design direction, functional requirements, material and surface finish preferences.

I then provide an estimate with specifications and preliminary pricing. If you wish, details and materials may be varied to reach a budget target. Think value engineering.


Finished Table

What happens when you order?

I prepare a detailed proposal that will include specifications and construction drawings for your approval.

Typically, a 50% deposit is requested.

Scheduling is confirmed.

Material samples will be gathered and submitted for approval if needed.

Wood finishing samples are a key part of many projects. I work closely with several talented finishing companies. Their individual specialties would be matched to your needs. I usually coordinate the process.

Some projects require stone, solid surfacing, glass or metal fabrication. As with the finishing, I would coordinate the process and provide the necessary templates and specifications to make everything fit well together.

Table in Location
