Established in 2002, our design and fabrication skills & technology advanced to state-of-the-art levels in Jacksonville, FL.  Now located in Telluride, CO, our facilities are limited in size at this time. For now, we are unable to do larger cabinet projects and intricate veneering jobs.

  • We attend industry seminars and continuing education classes. 

  • We train to master tools and techniques: old-world and high-tech

  • Extensive reading of "design trend" magazines and trade journals



Owner, Lead Craftsman

BBA in management, University of North Florida


Gary began woodworking as a hobby while in college and working as a picture framer. Among the first "Certified Picture Framers" in Florida, he is qualified to do museum framing. A few years of art installation work and home repairs led to the establishment of Verdant Designs, where Gary gained experience in all aspects of furniture and fixture making. He reached a high level of craftsmanship, bringing compliments from the most demanding clients. He keeps abreast of all the latest home fashions and commercial architecture trends with the goal of offering high impact designs, produced with quality materials at a reasonable price.


Since moving to Telluride in 2015, Gary has been limited but is now taking on selected jobs and is fully engaged in the blade sharpening and art installation services at this time.


An avid outdoorsman, Gary most enjoys hiking, climbing, and skiing with his fun-loving family.

Jen develops new clientele, new ideas, helps on the occasional installation. She is also the reason for the fun loving family mentioned above.


Apollo is our new Colorado Mountain Dog since 2017. He is a constant companion who likes everyone who ought to be liked but doesn't like Coyotes.

 ***Sad to say, this wonderful, loyal dog passed away from old age in summer 2015***



Shadow went to the school of street smarts until being found by Jen in a parking lot. She became a member of the family, loyal companion, and bane of all who don't belong in her territory.
