Just from the few items Adam has presented at his website, it’s easy to see that he’s got many attributes of a great designer; Eco-conscious —utilizing sustainable forested woods, ingenuity—applying CNC techniques of his own design and style—that speaks for itself. 

Victorian Grandfather Chair. My favorite!

57ft Cofee Table / Bench. Not my top pick by looks, but it is certainly the most impressive by design. Regarding the “custom CNC techniques” above, this is CNC cut via complex 3D curves from one continuous length of plywood 57ft long. 

Wall +.

Chippendale Writing Desk.
