Randolph Secrest is a Texas Hill Country craftsman specializing in the construction of chests, trunks and other pieces primarily from local mesquite wood.
Utilizing the traditional joinery methods of mortise and tenon, dovetails, and tongue and groove creates a structurally sound case. The trunks are cedar-lined, the drawers glide on sliding hardwood dovetails and the hardware is first quality. The finish is hand rubbed oil.
Solid construction along with his contemporary interpretation of the Arts and Crafts style and the peculiarities of mesquite ensure a final product that is not only visually unique but beautiful and durable for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Randolph was born and raised in Robstown, Texas, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and recently retired as a pilot from Northwest Airlines. He has lived in the Hill Country community of Spicewood for more than 25 years.
