Cryptic Woodworks is my desire to create wooden products with a sense of wonder and mystery.  More than just static furniture I desire to make products with moveable parts, puzzles, and secrets.  

I draw inspiration from early furniture makers like Roentgen, Jefferson  and others who incorporated mechanisms and hidden compartments into their works.  Video games, fantasy and science fiction also greatly influence my designs.  Cryptography and puzzles add the final layer that invites the user to interact with the piece.
