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.

One Door Opens…

Posted on: May 10th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

We are always grateful when a publication showcases our work–it opens a door to a new set of viewers.  Thank you to Design New England who featured our new Rolling Owl Stools in their May/June issue.  Check out the “Local Wares” section and the other great features of this digital magazine.

Speaking of Doors — This week Geoff is heading to NYC to deliver the Live Edge Doors featured in an earlier blog.  Everyone is amazed by their beauty.  When we asked Geoff about the doors, he reflected: “These amazing live edge boards are as fine as any art or furniture I have seen. Nature’s beauty with a little help from our shop, gave a second life to what I’m sure were magnificent trees.  I wish I knew their history.”

  Four Live Edge Doors By Geoffrey Warner Studio

 

Guess the Wood Type: Elm, Maple, Olive or Walnut? (answer in next blog)

Let us know if you would like a Live Edge board from Hearne Hardwoods.

Our plan is to fill the van for the trip home.
