Del's Service Offering


Ninety Five percent of my work is custom designed pieces worked out with the client.

Many of the pieces in my web portfolio can be reordered with the same or different woods, although the cost may vary when changing woods.

Pieces shown on the site without prices were made years ago and would have to be quoted for reproduction.

I have additional portfolios available at my studio for inspection.

Occasionally I will make spec. pieces for shows or galleries and they can be purchased from me or through the galleries.

For a list of pieces for sale, click “Items for Sale” under WORK. All prices are FOB San Diego and do not include California sales tax or shipping. To begin an order, please call me at 858-270-7739 or email

I usually try to work on only one project at a time because I am a one-man shop. This allows me to give my full attention to each customer. I prioritize new work by when the order was committed with a deposit. All work is based on a shop rate of $75/hr.
