Over the years Chase has been cultivating different styles of woodworking. He is constantly experimenting with new concepts and processes in order to produce decorative and functional pieces. Collaboration with The Reliquarium has significantly impacted Chase's outlook on the applications associated with wood. Much of his experimental work has also been catalyzed by Gordon Merrick, owner of Symmetry in Wood. He has inspired Chase not only in the realms of woodworking but in every aspect of design and fabrication.
