Enter the world of rustic reclaimed furniture!! A little outside my usual mandate but still lots of fun. This fir coffee table base will get hit with a flame thrower to compliment the bleached fir top!! #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria

The first of the Garry Oak to our local artisans. Here the amazing green wood carver and fellow #oneTree artist @merlayna takes a couple of chunks, showing that the Smart Car can be practical!!!!! Can’t wait to see what she does with the wood. #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria #modernlighting #contemporarylighting #lighting #light #designerlighting

Yesterday marked the start of an amazing project. This 150 year old Garry Oak had Honey Fungus and had to be removed. The owner was a big supporter of the #oneTree exhibit and the @batemancentre so wanted to honour the tree properly. I have been asked to dry the wood and make a range of pieces from it!! In the spirit of oneTree the wood that I can’t make use of will be distributed to greenwood carvers and turners in the Victoria area. @modernhomemag @boulevard_magazine @timescolonist @yam_magazine #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria #modernlighting #contemporarylighting #lighting #light #designerlighting

This picture has been circulating on Facebook and came to me via my Mum, Carloe Randall, an amazing artist from North Wales. It is so true and one of the hardest parts of being an artist is pricing and the feeling that you always have to justify those prices. When you meet those clients that have a love for art and craftsmanship and really appreciate your work, it is such a liberating experience (also a little daunting)!! #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria #modernlighting #contemporarylighting #lighting #light #designerlighting

When you work on your own and have a bad back, sometimes you need to creative. I love the simple dolly for instance. This is a 9′ 2 1/4″ thick slab of black walnut (the little one). #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria
