Introducing the amazing jumping table! With a gentle lift, you can transform a mild-mannered coffee table into a stunning dining table, or a card table that seats four. A simpler version has a fixed top more suitable for an intimate dinner for two.
You can see the first prototype versions of this versatile and stylish piece of furniture very soon. I have been invited to participate in an exclusive fine arts show called "The Art and Design of the 20th and 21st Centuries" which will be taking place at the Cyclorama , Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St. in the South End of Boston. See more information at AD20/21
The show dates are April 8-11.
I am also pleased to inform you that your ticket is good for a $5 discount at the Craft Boston show as well. So make a weekend of art and fine craft.

Essence Woodworks continues to provide unique, quality cabinetry to satisfied customers. This maple kitchen in Northampton, designed by Ed Hogan of Designworker, combines traditional cabinetry with modern design and many unusual materials, including the designer plastics and the concrete counters. The open spacious kitchen with the eat-in bar is backed by a full pantry with a pass-through next to the refrigerator.
Another kitchen in the Northampton area featured Mission-style, white oak cabinetry and beautiful stone counters. The unusual design of the house results in this structural post plunging into the center of the kitchen. Open spaces over the sink and cabinets to the right restrict wall space for normal upper cabinets. Discussions with the owner and the general contractor, Ted Giles, while sitting in the poorly conceived old kitchen, ultimately led to this configuration which maximizes the usefulness of the wall space, uses corners to accommodate major appliances, and creates a harmonious balance in an otherwise awkward space.
