Here's a slightly different take on my woven leather barstool. This one's got a mid-back leather strap and blonde wood to contrast the dark brown leather. I can make these in whatever kind of wood you'd like. Contact me for details.
I recently made a custom shelving unit for a friend who simply needed her microwave above her stove and not on her counter. Originally it was just going to have one board going across the bottom, but then I thought "Well that's boring." I want it to DO MORE. There would have been so much space above the microwave, so I thought "What a great place for a butcher's block!" So I made an end-grain butcher's block out of all the scraps I had sitting around my shop. But how to easily slide such a monster in and out of the shelf? Why not a leather strap? Great idea! I love incorporating wood and leather... so I did. Now it looks like a butcher's block suitcase. I'm okay with that. But now there's all this boring un-utilized space below the shelf. How about a handy little spice rack made of tiny jars? Great idea! Should I sink the top into the shelf and secure it with epoxy? But won't it be a hassle to have to unscrew the jar every time you want to remove it? Good point. Magnets...? I do love magnets... I'm somewhat obsessed with magnets... Magnets it is! I sunk seven rare earth magnets into the shelf so the jars attached securely and easily from below. Let's stop there. I don't want to overdo it.
I wanted a very simple but elegant form to match the the function of this knock-down meditation bench. The walnut seat and sides are held snugly together by the maple tusk tenon joinery which can be easily assembled or broken apart with the included walnut/maple mallet. When broken down, the pieces take up very little space. Contact me to commission one.
Another batch of live edge solid cherry wood magnetic knife racks is finished and ready to be shipped out! These are slightly taller than most and all are at least 24.5 inches long, holding 16 knifes comfortably. Contact me to purchase or for more info.
It rhymes so you know it's true. FINISHED. It took a good long while, but it's finally done and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. It's walnut with a woven leather seat and I made it entirely using hand tools. I'll DEFINITELY be plugging in for its companion stool.
