CUTTING BOARDS

One of the most popular items in the gallery are Bruce's cutting boards. Finely crafted with a fish or abstract design, the artist works to incorporate the unique features of the grain of each board when ever possible.

Each fish design features beautiful inlay work and is crafted from dark walnut, reddish paduk and blond maple. In addition to these woods, abstract designs often feature oak, acacia and purple wood and also have a beautiful curved inlay.

Fish Cutting Boards                    10" x 17" x 0.75"   $69.00  with choice of fish color and background.
Abstract Cutting Boards             10" x 17" x 0.75"   $69.00

MUSIC STANDS

Launer was influenced at an early age by various artists in his family, who worked in a variety of styles and mediums, but it was woodworking that would steal his focus. After having assisted craftsmen who restored historic buildings in Santa Cruz, California, he acquired a job at a woodworking studio that created unique interiors for “themed” boutiques and retail businesses. Bruce Launer is a member of the Whidbey Island Woodworkers Guild and holds a bachelor of arts degree from Eastern Oregon State University.

Since moving to Whidbey Island and has been creating fine woodworking products, specializing in his unique music stands.

Each stand is finely crafted from various hardwoods with beautiful inlay details, made according to sheet music specifications and fully adjustable in height and angle. Stands measure 36" - 48" tall and are 16" x 20" wide.

FURNITURE

“My intention is to erase the arbitrary lines created between art, design and craft," Launer said.

Nowhere is that more apparent than in the playful way he combines types of wood, live edges, knot holes and even rocks in his stylish furniture.
