Furniture

Edward Wohl's custom designs are created from a variety of solid hardwoods, including bird's-eye maple, black cherry, white oak and walnut. (Matching veneers may be used in drawer bottoms and cabinet backs.) In each piece, the wood has been chosen for its dramatic figuring or attractive grain, enhanced by a clear, hand-rubbed finish. No stains are used.

Edward's creations are noted for their graceful proportions, flowing lines, seamless joinery and silky smoothness even in the hidden parts you'll never see or touch.

Most of the pieces displayed here were created in response to an individual customer's request, so the actual items shown are not available for purchase. If you see something you like, please feel free to contact us to discuss such particulars as choice of wood, dimensional requirements and delivery schedule.

The following summer she ordered six cherry slat dining chairs.

Coffee & End Tables

Bubinga Hall Table
Bubinga Hall Table - 1998
This hall table is made of the African wood, bubinga. The top is out of a spectacularly figured sample of the wood. I purchased this 15" wide board form an import wood dealer in New Jersey in 1976. As I was designing and building a hall table of white oak I remembered this long-stored piece of beautiful wood and made a second table top from that one board.

Curly Cherry Side Table
Curly Cherry Side Table - 1999
I had a commission to build a walnut side table to sit next to a customers Barca Lounger. The size was specific — 27" high, 24" wide, and 15" deep. I liked the proportions well enough to build a second table from some highly figured cherry that I had been saving, and that table is now in our living room.

Desks & File Cabinets

Cherry Curved-Front Desk
Cherry Curved-Front Desk - 2011
This was probably the most complex piece of furniture I have ever designed and built. The customer, a very close friend, wanted an L-shaped desk to fit in a specific spot in her home office and studio. An L- shape was not an answer that either of us liked. On and off for a year I worked on sketches. Just when my friend and I were about to give up, I started sketching curves, producing the lovely, though extremely complicated design.
Cherry Curved-Face Desk
Cherry Curved-Face Desk - 2011
The drawers were all curved and the handles sculpted out of the thick wood that I started with. This required many complicated jigs and patterns to construct. It took many hours to make the jigs and then slowly remove small amounts of wood at a time to reach the final curve and shape. The end frame and panel is also curved.
Cherry Curved-Face Desk w/ Low-Back Slat Chair
