ALAN VOGEL, FINE FURNITURE MAKER 

Alan has forged and deliver a fair number of large and heavy dining tables made from charming old reclaimed fir that is so available around the Pacific Northwest. In fact, to quote Alan, "It's been a productive and encouraging ten years working here in my studio on Bainbridge Island where I find myself dreaming up unique designs and intricate joinery while scouring away decades of grime and splintery surfaces."

While he's known for the reclaimed fir dining tables he makes, he has also fashioned more artistic live edge pieces from figured and spalted slabs of maple, alder, cherry, red wood, etc. Each of these pieces display a uniqueness that emphasize the natural shape and characteristics of the wood.
