I can’t think of a more fitting issue for a feature on Thomas Wold than Issue No. 7, with its “Wit & Whimsy” theme. I first became a fan of Thomas’ offbeat furniture creations through his column for ReadyMade magazine called “Solid Wold.” When I saw his Donkey Cabinet in person, sitting proudly in Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith’s apartment, I was even more impressed with the craftsmanship. Each piece has a narrative of its own, a mix of fantasy and discovery, all housed within an incredibly solid and useful piece of furniture.
In addition to his furniture designs and installations, Thomas has a large portfolio of custom cabinetry and interior woodwork for homes around the Bay Area, which you can see on his website. If you are interested in commissioning custom work or inquiring about one of his pieces, you can contact Thomas through his site here.
