More Work With Studio D, Part 1

June 29, 2016

Funny how life works. You think you have a plan set up, at least short term, to get something done (in this case, organizing my tools and shop space and making some much-needed shop storage and a workbench) and something comes up that is terribly difficult to turn away.

Just as I was moving back into my old condo last month, I got an email from the owner of the marketing design firm I made the conference table for last year. They have need of a long sofa table and an end table. They want them in a way that is congruent with the conference table (walnut, live edge, some bog oak butterflies, fabricated legs) and wanted to know if I was interested in making them.

Jeeze, I can hardly say no to such an offer, right? Yes, of course I will!

After some negotiating, I have the commission. After some design conversations back and forth and another email off to my wood supplier in Evansville, IN, I have some ideas in place and a few large slabs of wood waiting for me to peruse after a 3 hour drive.

Rough now, but I get to make it look good!

And I get to add some more pictures to the Shit-I-Can-Put-In-My-Venza photo album! What fun!

Now I just need to figure out where I can get all of this work done…

    I have a Toyota Matrix, with the same awesome passenger front seat that can be put down flat. Clearly this is the best feature ever for a passenger car – and one of the reasons I will keep it forever! I love the Flickr set!

      My ex-wife and I somehow squeezed an Empire-style Credenza that was 36″ wide, 18″ deep, and 5′ tall into her old Matrix! I swear we somehow warped space and time to get it in. The Venza is the same principle, except you get to add a few more feet of cargo space. And the V6 engine is the same that all of the Lexus models use, so it’s a really strong engine that will last a long time as long as I take care of it. My old 4-Runner (1995 – the last year of the drop-down tailgate) could haul just as much. I love Toyota cars.

        I would love to get the extra few feet – can’t get 10 foot 2 by 4s in unless the window is open!
