The Buttes!!!

Phoenix Marriott Tempe at The Buttes

Three months ago I was asked to sketch up a few designs for the Buttes and see about building a few new tables for their patio. They liked what I presented. After a few meetings and conversations I started the build out. Working with some local saw mills (and one in Oregon), I set out to find the perfect wood. I chose many varieties: Black Acacia, three types of Mesquite, White Ash, Arizona Elm, Oregon Cottonwood, Maple, Grenadino, and Aleppo Pine. Next, I set out to design the bases, using 1 1/2 and 2″ square tube steel with wood inserts, one adjustable.  I trussed them in four unique ways using some custom iron, antique fence pieces, some bar stock and some unique craftsmanship.  Each table base is its own while following a common theme, so they match without being the same.  For the wood, I used some live edge and free forms, as well as cut some square.  By following the nature in each piece, the tops formed themselves into color and shape, contrast that gives the pieces even more dimension. The rustic, clean look fits well with the modern restaurant architecture set in rocks amidst a cactus garden.  Being given so much artistic freedom this project embodies the Industrial Craftsman style.

1 Year Anniversary of Welcome Chicken + Doughnuts !!!!!!

A little over a year ago I was approached to do my largest project to-date. Welcome Diner was opening a new concept and needed a counter, 2 picnic tables, 11 benches, 8 table tops and a bike rack and… oh, a door handle. Using glue-lam beams, some steel and some style, I collaborated with Sloan McFarland  to  create something beautiful and slightly more modern than my furniture is normally.  Today, as Miss Bane and I had a doughnut, I felt proud to have been a part of such a great spot  on the Phoenix food scene. The Furniture still looks great, the food is AMAZING and the relationships with the people there are as important as the work we did. It is my personal goal to serve my community with beautiful, affordable, quality furniture. Thank you Welcome family for letting me be a part of your world.

Miss Bane’s Bed!

After a year of a mattress on the floor, Miss Bane finally convinced me to build her a bed (she says it is ours).   It is made of new steel, a Clarendon Hotel balcony rail, reclaimed redwood, and some very serious bolts.  The wooden feet allow it to move easily on tile scratch-free.  The dramatically  tall height gives it an “Alice in Wonderland” feel.  I find myself inspired by Moorish tile work, so I put a “star of squares” in it.  With such solid construction, the bed is completely “rock free”.  Beds start around $900 (minus Moorish stars).

In a collaboration with Desert Dragon Studios, I brought some Industrial Craftsman Furniture pieces to the Desert Botanical Gardens. These were pieces to help create a beautiful garden space and included a Plant Stand, Bench, and Outdoor Table.  They help to create an outdoor room in any garden!

BBQ Season is coming!

With only 23 days until fall weather will be warm and the evenings perfect. It is time to dust off the grill and start BBQ season. We are looking forward to 9 months of outdoor living. Are you ready? Now is a perfect time to add a little touch to your outdoor space. Do you have enough seats? BBQ grill? Table or a bench? Planter or trellis to set the mood? or maybe a lawn sculpture. At industrial Craftsman Furniture I send a lot of time building out door spaces. Add some ICF to your garden party this spring.
