An Artistic Professional Woodworker
Hello, I'm Todd Waite, Woodworker and Artist. My company, WaiteWood, produces hand-made, hand-finished, custom furniture specializing in Craftsman style (Mission, Stickley, Arts & Crafts) that matches the craftsmanship and beauty of their century-old original counterparts.
Only the best quality solid hardwoods, such as elaborately-figured, quarter-sawn oak, are used to build these pieces. I personally do the research, development, and design which ensures you'll get a faux antique piece in perfect harmony with the original.
I also restore and refinish wood - from individual pieces of furniture to entire rooms. I've successfully restored pieces from which other so-called masters have shied. I've extensive knowledge and experience with antiques, hand-worked finishing, and can bring a piece "back from the dead" without compromising its beauty or integrity.
A Professional Artist in Oil Paint
I invite you to peruse my paintings. Working mostly in oil on canvas, my subject matter is music and musicians with an occasional nude. Look for me to exhibit in Long Beach in the very near future.
Current plans include the creation of a Giclee Print series - prints of accurately-reproduced originals (at a fraction of the cost), set on canvas, varnished and framed. Set one of my Giclee's side-by-side with an original, you’ll be amazed at the quality of the reproduction!
