Screen door for porch

screened door 2017-01-15 13.48.49I used this door as a practice piece before I took on the larger more complicated entry door. I used basswood because it is light and easily carveable. Normally, one would not use basswood for an outdoor application, but this door will be well sealed and protected with a small roof. It also faces south and will dry out quickly. It will have self closing hinges. Stained dark to match the house.

Craig is technically an outsider artist, having no schooling or apprentice training in the arts. His background is in building and remodeling, but always with an artistic approach. This history lends itself to creating art which is also functional. Many of the tables, kitchens and beds he has made are clever and beautiful combinations of the natural edge and graining with specific functionality. He specializes in creating for those who have a specific corner or room in the house which needs attention. Also, he has been making handmade coffins, urns and memorials since the 80's. People often get their coffins ahead of time and store them. Familiar with the laws of Michigan, Craig is able to design and execute anything people want, however, creative or simple.
