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!

One Door Opens…

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.”

Custom Doors & What’s Yours?

Posted on: May 1st, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner 2 Comments

Our current project is four interior doors for a New York family. With the desire to bring nature and character into their NYC apartment, Geoff selected 4 different live edge wood panels—English Wych Elm, Olive, Big Leaf Maple and European Walnut. This project began with creating a mahogany frame for each door.  Each live edge board is then sanded and routed to accept the custom-shaped mahogany splines that fill the space between the live edge and frame. To bring out the beautiful wood grain, each panel will receive 3 coats of hand-rubbed tung oil. We look forward to showing you the final pieces in May.

Custom Piece Opportunity ~ What’s Your Dream?

Geoff will be delivering these custom doors and visiting Hearne Hardwoods mid-May.  If you would like to give some beautiful wood a second life, Geoff can select the perfect live edge board for your project.  Please contact Geoff to discuss your table, desk, door or other furniture.  Contact Geoff by May 10th – we’re ready to fill our empty van before returning to the Studio!  Thank you.
