some custom barstools, and other news from the metal shop

 we delivered 8 barstools to the hill farm project today.
 welded steel, leather by isaiah maccauliffe at bespoke upholstery in manchester, wood by dcf, design by san, sam and nina mooney of ncm design in manchester.. it was an interesting piece of 'mass' production and they came out comfy and elegant.  and relatively affordable, sam just finished four
shorter ones with no swivels or seats for a friend who will finish them up himself.
they are really affordable that way.  contact sam for details
 swiveling seats and steam bent backs by sawyer bentwood in whitingham, vt.
blackening and finishing by mr. jim
stool frames with swivels recessed into the bottoms of the seats to hide them ...
 and we've got three interesting rebar pieces going to a new pizzeria in sebastapol, california.
they will all have danby vermont marble tops by herb johnson at 
johnson marble and granite in proctor, vt.  they will be on their way monday.
the steel things sticking out will hold the pizza peel and the freshly assembled
pizzas will slide off the marble, onto the peel and into the wood fired oven.
the marble overhangs the ply support by 1" all around.  
the peel and the marble are the same thickness.
 and another section of rail is in
 the trout are biting .. check out 'old toothy' here .. click to enlarge it!!
happy and productive man in the new metal shop .. 
sam's off tomorrow to a hammer making weekend with pat quinn in glens falls, new york
