Massive pieces for Yabu Pushelberg’s Miami installation

    We just completed an exciting project for Toronto/ New York design firm Yabu Pushelberg.

We also designed four solid walnut benches and six walnut block stools.  Because the pieces will be in the open air with a view of the ocean, we applied a marine varnish to...

Live Edge Salvaged Black Cherry Table

We recently created a live edge table using two striking bookmatched slabs of black cherry wood, salvaged from a stately century tree that had fallen in a storm. After being milled and kiln dried the wood was in perfect condition to create an heirloom table. We loved working with our client, Nick; he had a definite vision for his table. He chose the cherry slabs, the table shape, the table base and he collaborated with Andy  in the design of  the carved sculptural ends of the table. The table has a live edge and is finished with natural...
