Hello All,

This week, we are thrilled to announce that several of my pieces are now on display at Your Home Design Center in Colorado Springs, CO!  Their new showroom on Garden of the Gods Road, just west of I-25,  will be celebrating their Grand Opening THIS Saturday, July 19th.  Doors open at 10:00 a.m.

For you Google-Mappers, their address is:  802 W. Garden of the Gods Road, Colorado Springs, CO  80907.

Eitz Hadar Woodworks will be displaying five pieces from our M114 Entry Collection;  two mirror/shelf ensembles and a hall table.  Designs in our M114 Collection are unified by the extensive use of exposed joinery and a meticulously hand-carved, scalloped motif.  Our contemporary adaptation of a traditional Shoji-screen room divider is also on display.

Today, I finished installing our mirrors and shelves, shown in the photo below.  More designs are "in the works" so stay tuned for future announcements.  Of course, you can always view many of our designs on-line at

Looking forward to hearing about your visits!  Of course, if I can answer any questions about custom furniture, please email me at

Beetle-kill Pine Room Divider

Well, New Year's resolution to write one post a month lasted...well, about a month.  Here's installment #2 for 2014!  Lots happening in general out here in Colorado and I have a few projects on the bench right now, so Yitz is a-hoppin'.

Today's project is a Beetle-kill Pine Room Divider I recently built.  It's got it all:  the rustic look, live edges, sawmill finish (on the reverse), and negative space.  It's made of reclaimed beetle-kill pine with an oil finish.  The frame is also beetle-kill, but dyed grey with a water soluble dye. Overall, this room divider is 80 inches tall and 96 inches wide.

Beetle-kill pine is wood from ponderosa and lodge pole pine trees that have been attacked and killed by the Mountain Pine Beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae).  When the beetles have killed the tree, they leave behind the distinctive blue staining.  The affected trees are harvested and the lumber finds it's way into beautiful furniture and building products for your home.

What do you think?

Amazingly Versatile Glass-tile Mosaics

Happy 2014 and welcome back!  By now, I’ve pretty much stopped shamelessly trolling for Happy Birthday wishes and it’s time to get back to work.  (It was just this week so, if you missed it, it’s still not too late….)  In this installment, I’m going to rave about glass-tile mosaics.

I work with a company on the East Coast that makes amazing mosaics with multi-colored 3/8-inch glass tiles.  Starting with any artwork (e.g. photo, painting, graphics, etc.), their high-tech process cranks out decorative works of art.  The attached, rendered tear sheet shows a concept I am developing for a client.  If you look closely, you can see the tiny individual tiles in each mosaic.  Here, I am two possibilities with different framing options:  grinder finished stainless steel and solid cherry hardwood pegged at the corners.

Glass-tile mosaics are extremely versatile.  You can easily incorporate any theme into your interiors:  history, science, technology, nature, etc.  You are limited only by your imagination!  They make a durable, washable surface that’s rated for residential floors.  They’re can also be installed in wet environments (e.g. shower stalls) or even underwater!

Please contact me if I can provide any information regarding this amazing, versatile product.  Of course, you can always call me to talk about custom furniture too.

Wishing you a prosperous 2014!
