WELCOME TO MY BLOGI design and build original and custom sculpted hardwood furniture.
I will be joining potter Peter Brondz at his annual studio show and sale over Thanksgiving weekend. See the second image for details. Take a drive down the Turnagain Arm and stop in at his studio in Bird Creek. He and Jenny Nakao will have amazing pottery and I will have a selection of small things as well as a few small furniture pieces. I hope to see you there!
Occasionally I will work through some small but nice cut-off pieces of wood that I’ve saved and turn them into something as a way of making room in the shop. This time I worked them into sets of drink coasters to be used to protect your table tops and nice flat surfaces. There are 4 sets of 4 coasters here – one set of walnut, one of cherry, one of quarter sawn white oak and one mixed set of walnut, cherry, white oak and maple. They all have a distinctive cork insert 3 3/4″ in diameter. They are finished with the same finish I use on my furniture. $110 for each set, plus shipping. If interested in a set(s) use the contact page to let me know which set you’d like and to work out the purchase.
This small sculptural case was inspired by the rainforests of British Columbia and the roots of trees reaching around rocks or fallen trees. The 3 drawer dovetailed case is made of flame birch. The “rootwad” is made of black walnut and also provides for the drawer pulls. 11″ wide x 11″ deep x 19″ high. $1,900.
