well, we have done lots of arranging and organizing here at the new shop and things are starting to fall into place. I was finally able to get a few pieces in the works here in the last week and a half and it's a good feeling. We had a lot to contend with getting the utilities going and the building functional, as it hasn't been inhabited for quite some time, but the gas should be turned on tomorrow (finally, it's freezing in there and the space heaters don't compare to the suspended gas heater we will have fired up). There is still much electrical to be run, but that should be in the works very soon. Here are a few of the pieces I have completed at the new shop. Hope you enjoy.....
(Note...This is also a somewhat dated post. I have lights in the paintbooth now, and electrical, and we also have power drops to the tablesaw and jointer and many more pieces have come and gone. still a ways to go, but we have made lots of progress and I've also had 3 other Frank Lloyd Wright (Hendredon) pieces come through. A Couple of my regular dealers have also opened up new spaces very near by, so the best of luck to them as well. More pictures to come in the very near future of course.)
This pair came to me from an individual referral. It's by RWAY, from the 40's. Nice Honduran Mahogany mixed with Bird's eye drawer fronts. Really Like the lines on these....
(pictures to come)
A couple of really nice McCobb pieces, both solid maple, of course (one a rarely seen table/dresser/jewelry chest) for Form..
These are both Widdicomb, by Robsjohn Gibbings, done for Sputnik Modern. You can also see this post for more info on the Gibbings....
This is a beautiful walnut Brown Saltman Dining Table, also for Sputnik Modern.
-there are many more, but it's difficult to post everything. Just like on the website, it's just a drop in the bucket, but I will try and keep putting some of these up here if anyone's interested in seeing them. Meanwhile, more shop pics to come and it get's more and more into a fully functional mode.

Congratulations on your new shop. I've read all of your previous blogs and drooled over the photos. Your work is phenomenal and it's obvious you have a deep respect and appreciation for wood. Can't wait to read and see more.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that things are almost back to normal for you in your new place. Are you still planning to have an open house?ReplyDelete
@Krazy4MOd, Thank You. I'm sorry I haven't posted more. I will try and get some more pics up here this week. @ Dana, thanks again, I am going to try and have the open house but it is looking like it's going to be closer to March, we still have some things to arrange and want to get a couple of pieces built before we can show it off.ReplyDelete
