Walnut Four Poster Floor Lamp - Workshop Update

This week we are focusing on finishing up a custom four poster floor lamp for one of our clients in Rhode Island. We love how it is turning out so far, the deep walnut wood and tiger stripe maple really makes an eye catching statement and is very attractive looking. Below are some photos from the shop showing the building process of this lamp.

Here we are fitting mortise and tenon joints in the tiger striped Maple frame. The integrity of the joints are important, after all they need to last for generations!


A little help with pre-assembly fitting of all the components from our shop dog Brookie!
The Four Poster Floor Lamp has 32 joints that create the final assembly and encase the Walnut cube.
More photos of the completed project to come!

Maine Boats, Homes + Harbors Show - Summer of 2015 Experience

Last Summer, we exhibited at The Maine Boats, Homes, + Harbors show in Rockland, ME. We were thrilled with our corner booth in tent J not only for the open layout and awesome foot traffic but also the cool coastal breeze occasionally blowing into the tent on that oh so hot Summer weekend.

There was a fantastic turn out and great interest in our furniture and lighting, we were so pleased. We really enjoyed meeting a variety of potential clientele and having the opportunity to discuss each of their individual interests in our furniture and lighting on display as well as discuss some custom pieces they were looking to have designed for them, one on one. These trade shows that we have been fortunate to participate in, have allowed us to showcase our products as well as design expertise first hand and up close. The clientele also has inspired us to create new pieces which have helped us to further develop our product line.

Being on Rockland's beautiful Maine coast is such an experience in itself, from attending the events within the show, to enjoying some of Maine's finest Summer treats, and viewing such a quality of craft throughout, it is certainly something you do not want to miss. Overall it was a great experience and we are eager to return again this August with some new furniture and kitchen designs! We'd like to encourage everyone to check out the show and to stop by to view our products as well as discuss any future projects you may have.

Until then, be sure to visit our website and check in with us frequently for furture updates inspiration, and more!
