I'm always on the lookout for hardwoods, either from branches that have fallen or from old furniture that people leave out on the curb. The other day while on my daily walk through the neighborhood I came across a beautiful eucalyptus branch that had been off the tree for a while, as it was very dry and ready for the saw. At first I didn't know what I was going to use it for, but I picked it up knowing it was a great piece to add to my stock inventory. After some closer examination, I decided it was the perfect diameter for coasters, and so began the process of cutting, sanding and oiling. Here are a few shots of the process. These coasters will be available for purchase soon! Cheers!
There are always places in our homes where we could use a little extra storage. The pantry is usually in need of some additional shelving, and that's exactly what I did here with this client's oddly shaped panty. Installing 4 or 5 shelves can improve your storage options dramatically and give you the extra space you've been looking for. Utilizing the ceiling hight frees up floor space, making it easier to keep clean and making your space appear bigger than it is. Whether it's the pantry, closets, or a wall in your house, I'm your guy for custom shelving options.
It's that time of year again, when family and friends gather and old photo albums are dusted off and opened up. I love looking through old photos, remembering the moments that were captured in a single frame, forever frozen in time. This holiday season pick out your favorites and find some wall space worthy of a nice gallery. It will bring a smile to anyone walking by.
I designed and installed this gallery of frames in a clients house last week. If you would like something similar in your home let me know!
Did you know that the average adult human spends 12 to 32 minutes a week looking for his keys? There's a good chance that's highly inaccurate because I just made those numbers up, but the point is we waste precious moments of our lives looking for something that should be in the same place every single time we're ready to head out. So, instead of scratching your head in reflective frustration, pick up a Twelve14 Key Organizer, complete with 6 key hooks and a small cubby to stash all the time you save!
I make these from 100% recycled wood from old pallets. The pallet slats are usually the perfect size, and come to life after some good sanding and oiling. Each one I make is unique in size and shape, but all begin with the same rough design. This one, made from white oak, has been keeping my keys organized for about two years now. Enjoy!
This design uniquely created for candle maker, Kingsley Drive.
