Finally finished my boy’s bunk beds. We used walnut that I had rejected for other projects (pieces with bug holes, big structural cracks that needed to be filled with epoxy, extra sappy pieces, etc.).And we incorporated a live edge into each headboard. The lower bunks are up high so that we can eventually build a bank of drawers to put under there.
A new branding iron. Thanks to Tom Bateman for the design work.
There are a lot of live edge slab tables on the market these days. So when this client asked about one, I suggested that we run the natural edge down the center of her table. Try something different! The result was a new table style we’re calling “the San Andreas”. The meandering joint line resembles a fault line on a topographic map, and the areas where the slabs move away from each other look like a bodies of water on a map. Each San Andreas table will be a custom order because the slabs are different every time. We currently have walnut slabs to accommodate table lengths anywhere from 4′ dining table to a 17′ long conference table. Of course, longer slabs can be purchased.

For those that are interested in the process of making this table, here is a short slide show.
The Dutchman bed. So named for it’s many dutchman patches. The following slide show gives a glimpse at the process of turning reject walnut slabs into a Dutchman headboard.
This bed is queen sized, but can be made in any size. For pricing and information, contact us.
