Welcome Hanna & New Testimonial

Posted on: August 16th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Welcome Hanna! & New Video Testimonial

Our new Owl Stool shop assistant, Hanna, is already flying solo.  Her attention to detail is helping to create beautiful Owl Stools.  Below Hanna is working on the final sanding process for a variety of Owl Stools.  We have short stools, tall stools and stools that watch you while you work!

 

 

Thank you to all HOOOO stopped by our booth last weekend at the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbor show!  What a great event.  Our corner booth allowed our custom furniture on one side and Owl Stools on the other side.  Below, Iana takes a well deserved break!

Thank you to Lise for her spontaneous testimonial (see video)–after a long meeting on an Owl Stool she realized that she never shifted her weight (no fatigue); she exclaimed “One of the most comfortable things I’ve ever sat on!”


NEXT SHOW:  Mark your calendars to join us September 20th-22nd at the Common Ground Fair in Unity, ME.  We’re also at the Stonington Farmer’s Market — every Friday*–one of the best and most diverse Farmer’s Markets!

(*Exception: we will not be at the farmer’s market Sept.  20th due to our participation at the Common Ground Fair.)

We hope that you are grabbing the last bit of summer!

As always, thank you for your interest in our Owl Furniture.

Geoff Goes Undercover!

Posted on: June 13th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner 2 Comments

Usually Geoff completes his custom woodworking projects in the shop, but occasionally he must add the finishing touches on-site.

As we described in an earlier Custom Doors blog, Geoff recently made four wooden live edge doors for a NYC family.  During the installation, he needed to get creative and used a sheet as a dust catcher when he routed the doors for the on-site fitting.  For a chuckle, checkout the brief  “Geoff Goes Undercover” video.  Here’s an image of two installed doors–the live edge tree panels are frame by mahogany:

During the last blog, we mentioned the great article in July Issue of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, here’s a link to the article if you haven’t seen the issue yet.

For folks in the Stonington Maine area, see you at the Farmer’s Market on Friday, 10-12!

Come try an Owl Stool — a great wooden stool for Kitchens, Living Rooms & Offices!

Owl Stools featured in Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors

Posted on: May 30th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Thank you to Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors  and Marie Malin for the six page coverage in the July 2012 issue!

We enjoyed having Marie participate in an Owl Stool workshop and write about her experience from start to finish. She truly captured the essence of the adventure of making your own owl stool–from joining the legs to the seat and sanding to applying the final coat of oil.  Marie also noticed one of our favorite moments in every workshop. It is the moment when people’s eyes light up with the sense of accomplishment and we hear “Wow, I made that”.

Beginning in June and lasting through November, GWS will offer Owl Stool Workshops every first and third Wednesday.  Groups making 6 or more stools may also call to schedule a private workshop.

If you would like to try out an Owl stool, stop by the Gallery or visit us at the Stonington Farmer’s Market beginning June 8th.
