Hi,
Thanks for your question about Seattle-area fabricators. For metal work, I recommend 5-STAR Metal, John Lucchesini at 206-706-2754. For carpentry, it really depends on your project, so I will defer on that recommendation.

Well, curvilinear or bent wood is always a challenge. Steam bending or dry bending requires experimentation and patience. Prototyping is usually necessary. If you have your own shop, then that is the best route. Otherwise, you can establish a relationship with a good cabinet shop and hopefully they will help you. Bear in mind that this type of work is usually a money-losing proposition for a commercial shop.

Carlos Taylor-Swanson does beautiful work. He owns Madera Fine Decorative Furnishings, LLC. The shop is in Tacoma. His phone is 253-572-1218. His email is carlos@maderawoodworking.com.
Carpentry can cover a wide range of skills and expertise. Carlos is a real artisan. He still has not set up a Houzz account, but he is connected with me on LinkedIn and we are both part of the Tacoma Design Collective.
I hope that helps,

Alanostudio,

You're welcome.

I tried to send you an email using the email address on your website, but it said it was invalid when I hit "send".

Feel free to call or email anytime. My contact info is on both our main web site and the Houzz page. I'll actually be on a project in Redmond at least three days this coming week.
