Clean House ... Back to the Big Tables

Quite a week .. In the last seven days we have delivered or shipped a total of fifteen (15) pieces.
The duck bed last Thursday, the big tv cabinet and two other pieces to the house in Grafton last Friday, a table and 6 chairs to the Southern Vermont Art Center for an upcoming show of New England Furniture Makers that opens next Saturday, two single beds and the recycled oak table to Martha's Vineyard, and today, last but certainly not the least, the big claro walnut slab table to Connecticut. ... I can't believe all that stuff was here at my shop at the same time ... I should have upped my insurance ... My mind is clear, the shop is empty (?) except for the 26' x 9' table and another dining table Will is working on, and I even got a round of golf in today .... Sam's in the metal shop working on a piece for another upcoming show at The Bennington Museum called 'State of Craft 2010' and the steel for the big table .... All for now ... individual updates on these projects and shows as time allows ... Click the photos to enlarge them .... click the links to see the pieces ... One of the single beds heading for the Vineyard ... Simple, modern, maple ply ; the two singles push together to form a king for guests
One of the 'State of Craft' flyers ... more on that later. the show opens the 22nd of this month..
Sam's got his part of the bench ready to paint ... Will and I will start the wood tomorrow ... Hey, we don't have to deliver it til next Friday ... 'Bridge To The Future' ...
The steel granite supports for the big table ... Sam will tap them to bolt two to each of the seven sections and weld end plates on to finish them ... Rugged stuff ...
Almost forgot .. We had our first meeting at the shop yesterday afternoon for a sculpture we;re building at the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester to celebrate this year's Open Studio which takes place May 28th and 29th. Over 250 Vermont artists will open their studios to the public for the weekend .. I think it's the 17th annual and there will be a total of five artists represented at our studio here ... Kit with her jewelry, Dorset Custom Furniture woodworking, Sam and his metal work, Penny Viscusi with her pastels and Denise Tilley with her hand made totally cool hats ... More on that as the event approaches.
Artist's concept ...
