"I make things of wood that I'd like to have myself: functional pieces that are quiet, peaceful, and a pleasure to touch and look at. My approach emphasizes select materials, structural integrity and utility. I like to let the wood do the work to coax nature to imitate art."
Edward's work is known for its masterful design, seamless joinery and liquid-smooth finish. He has also designed a variety of limited-production pieces including blanket chests, stools, benches and coffee tables and, of course, an extensive line of bird's-eye maple cutting boards.
Edward, with his family, has made his home and workplace among the pastoral hills and valleys of southwestern Wisconsin. "I have always wanted to live and work in a quiet, beautiful, open place. With the help and support of my wife and business partner Ann, and a goodly amount of luck, we've found that place. If people see beauty in my furniture, it may be because I find beauty in my everyday surroundings.
