I love nature. I really do. It brings a sense of peace, reverence, and awe that is difficult to come by in our fast paced world. This started when I was a boy on summer camping trips in the Sequoia National parks….yea those trees are big!
This continued as I learned to enjoy the outdoors on backpacking trips as an adult. Some of my closest friendships, best memories, and stories have been forged on these trips.
There are literally countless ways to put a piece of furniture together. The specific methods that a builder uses to turn a pile of wood into a piece of useable furniture is called joinery.
Some types of joinery are time consuming, ornate, and just as much a part of the aesthetic as it is the structure.
What can we do to make this piece of furniture stunning? How do we elicit an emotional response when people see or touch our furniture? How can we take an everyday item and turn it into a piece of art for our clients.
