We’re working on some great millwork projects. Above is one of two mobile mini bars for a local event company.
We bought this lovely little sofa through “UsedVictoria” this past summer. She was built in the Boston in the mid-50’s and had great bones. The leather was an awful cow-pie brown and the foam was hard as nails. Jan took the leather off and re-stained the wood trim a ‘wenge’ colour. Then we had Gregg’s Furniture reupholster in a fabulous faux red leather. What a difference!! Now it pops the room.
Did you know our UVPoxy from EcoPoxy fills cracks and knots beautifully? Danny tested it out on the live edge, Black Locust table top!
In fact we’ve been finding lots of cool ways to use it, check out this trophy for the Pacific Links Golf Tournament next month at Bear Mountain Resort. Made with EcoPoxy and the color pigments:

Maple & Ebony Guitar
Matt has been submitting his projects to our newsletter for years, as much as Matt is a gifted luthier he has finished his schooling and as a recent law school grad is heading north. Good luck Matt & Keep in touch!!!
This guitar has a western maple body and neck with and an ebony fretboard and knobs. Western maple makes up the interval dots on the fretboard.
Oil and poly hybrid finish.
A little something from the archives; and I do mean the story starts a long, long time ago.
We have two bedroom suites. One we purchased from an estate sale in the neighbourhood of Oak Bay (Victoria, BC) in 1977. A lovely black walnut set consisting of three dressers (two with mirrors) and bed unit. Jan and I purchased these prior to our wedding; we were setting up house. Great fun!! It was from the 1920’s and with 50 years of living, the dressers tops needed serious re-finishing. We set about removing the varnish; tops only. Major ‘newbie’ mistake; hadn’t considered the tops were veneered; edges were poplar – just a bit of a colour difference. Too late and we left the variation. We were young, in love, having fun and didn’t care!
