I recently completed work on the handmade certificate of authenticity for Mule Resophonic Guitars, shipping him the first Batch this past week. I hope you enjoy the finished piece and a few photos of the printing process.
These images document a build in its early stage of a family of black walnut tables, centered around a richly grained and beautifully colored walnut tree which we salvaged from a farm near Winfield, Kansas. The tables are a collaboration between my best friend/business partner and myself, sharing designing and building tasks to create, what we hope, are some authentically good pieces of furniture in the continuing tradition of live-edge/natural-slab furniture.
I am pleased to share some images of this memorial-hope chest built for a kind family up North. They drove a long road to pick it up this weekend and meet my family and myself. and found the road back with a little less leg room I am afraid. I have sought that my work might be graced to carry God’s blessing for those who are receiving it. I certainly hope this one does. It is a dovetailed chest with drawers featuring an inlaid tree design and an unorthodox lid. The woods were all harvested and milled here in Kansas: black walnut and green ash, with quarter sawn white oak, eastern red cedar, ebonized black walnut, bald cypress and poplar (not from KS).
