Arts and Crafts Revival Furniture Commission – Bedroom Suite

Arthur Dodge July 10, 2013

Craig Thibodeau’s Cherry and Maple Burl Bedroom Suite

This is the second of five distinct bedroom suites for this custom furniture commission. The client’s brief, as with the guest bedroom suite, was to imbue the pieces with Arts and Crafts Revival sensibility and Pacific Era East/West styling. When you “click to enlarge” the images, take a moment to notice Craig Thibodeau’s exquisite book-matched Maple Burl veneers. You will not be disappointed…

Cherry and Maple Library Table with Chairs

The library table and chairs will be used as a study area by the client’s children. Since this picture was taken, Craig Thibodeau has widened the table’s base so that there will be ample space to seat two people side-by-side…

Masterfully Book-matched Maple Burl

Craig Thibodeau is often asked to share his advanced veneering and marquetry skills with the readers of premier woodworking publications. He was recently featured in Fine Woodworking magazine’s June issue and will appear again in their August 2013 issue.
