I believe a design should become part of your daily life whether it is a table, kitchen cabinets, a bathroom vanity. It should not clutter your life but make it more spacious.
To achieve clean lines one should start with the utmost precision of joints, design elements, and function – I love seeing a design come together with exactness.
I am working with a variety of wood from indigenous to imported but I prefer to work in reclaimed wood. My furniture and cabinets are mostly made out of Mahogany and Dade County Pine.
My custom woodwork includes interior built-ins like floor to ceiling libraries and bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, and staircases.
After studying woodwork and design in Sweden he escaped the dark winters for the sunny tropical world of Florida where he currently lives and works. In his studio, he focuses on designing and the fabrication of unique modern furniture. He combines the clean, simple lines of Scandinavian sensibility with that of Caribbean warmth and function. His custom woodwork connects the unique desires of his customers with the soul of the design itself.learn more →
“Superb craftmanship and knowledge of materials, beautiful detailing, and overall, an encyclopedic background in preservation carpentry – Rudi brings these assets and more to every job he undertakes. We feel fortunate indeed to have worked with him to restore our historic home in Key West”- Beth and Peter Steffian (Architect), Key West
We have used Rudi for several building projects. In one case, he pretty much re-built our 19th century Key West house from the ground up. His hand-made cabinetry is to die for. For another job, he did a total renovation of a modern Winston Salem house—clean lines, dramatic use of wood. Rudi is an artist, nothing less. His work is amazing—a true Swedish craftsman. He is conscientious to a fault. Requires no supervision. My partner and I have renovated over a dozen properties, so we speak from experience. You just can’t find anyone better- Miles Frieden, Key Wes, FL/ Asheville NC
