The best part of models is the ability to quickly and accurately work out details on the fly. Here I’m working out a simple yet effective attachment system for the top of my bar table. #custommadefurniture #furniture #furnituredesign #handmade #locallymade #interiordesign #loveyourhome #luxurymoderndesign #moderndesign #madelocally #studiofurniture #westcoastdesign #yvr #yyj #westcoastmodern #idswest #design #designers #craftcouncilbc #shopvictoria #shoplocal #makersgonnamake #vanisle #madeinvictoria

Fantastic Christmas delivery!! This vintage Durand Machine Company (New Westminster,BC) bandsaw was very kindly loaned to me by the family of a great friend of mine @aa_ron.e from Cortes Island. The next couple of weeks will be spent getting it setup and a little refurbished (wiring and greased). Once it’s up and running I will post more photos. #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

Interest is growing for my Garry Oak project. The idea is that I make a range of furniture and lighting from the boards milled. The rest (seen here) gets distributed to local carvers and turners. They then give me photos of their work to be included in a book, given to the clients at the end of the project. #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
