Veneer Samples

With a slowdown in commissions comes an opportunity to get caught up with show pieces, tool tune-ups, and general back-burner projects. It is easy to blame the economy for slowdowns, but in over 30 years of work, there have always been ups and downs. It is time to reflect on positives and negatives; to re-group and re-energize. This time cannot be misused.

The place is buzzing with enthusiasm. Eric and I are designing an all new line of modern furniture that will be launched on its own website. Original designs made for batch production. We’ll sell right off the website and ship to your door. The prices will be attractive and the process streamlined relative to custom made. As an addition, it’s great to have a wider offering. We’ll continue to make commission work as well as art furniture. Preparing enough pieces to get a booth full for showing takes some time, and we don’t want to spoil the surprise just yet. Stay tuned!
