Baby Rocker

My newest son, Oliver, was born on the 17th, so I took the week off. After a couple of days I got stir crazy and found myself mocking up this baby seat on our back patio. Once the project was started I couldn’t stop. Here’s a few photos of Ollie’s new rocking chair frame. I will post an update when we get the leather seat made. 20150826-204517-74717202.jpg

Custom Half Moon Bench

I am putting the finishing touches on this custom upholstered Half Moon bench. It ships out the end of this week to a designer in New York. When I told her we could customize the upholstery she had this Pierre Frey linen sent from Paris. This is by far the most colorful Half Moon bench I have done yet. 20150421-221627-80187618.jpgBelow are a couple of shots of the reclaimed oak bench base in process.
