This little outdoor sitting bench was an add-on to the Mini Mioche build I finished recently, Dubbed “The Dad Bench” in the assumption that many of it’s inhabitants might be not-so-thrilled-to-be-shopping fathers who might like a time out here.
The slats for the bench were resawn from heritage Douglas Fir timbers that came from Toronto’s Distillery District. It’s great that the district keeps this lumber and makes it available to it’s tenants and their respective makers, so that this historic wood can live a new life in an old home.
So, if you find yourself on Case Goods Lane, have a seat!

The last two months of my life have culminated in the work you see in these photos and it’s incredibly satisfying to see everything completed and installed.
This is the second build iv’e done for Mini Mioche, they’ve just opened the doors to their Distillery District location in Toronto. This was a really fun project and I have to thank owner Alyssa Kerbel for putting her trust in me and pretty much giving me carte blanche.
We were able to obtain some historic Douglas Fir lumber from the Distillery District to use in this build and infuse a bit of the district’s history into the store’s furnishings. It all came together really well and looks right at home (because it is) in the space.
If you have kids to shop for you should probably pay a visit to Mini Mioche:

I recently finished this little Butternut console table; it caused me a lot of grief in the assembly stage, but it’s together now and the stress it caused me is relieved.
This is the first all wood piece iv’e done in a while and also one of the few. It was nice to work in only one material for a change.
Some more work I did for Tosho Knife Arts Recently…
Unfortunately I can’t take any credit for the design of this piece, I made it to match the cabinetry they already had for displaying their knives and modified it slightly to meet some different demands. There are magnets concealed in the wood to give the knives the appearance of magically standing on their handles.

I finally finished up this coffee table for a good friend of mine after months of it being put aside for other work. This is the first project iv’e used my compact bender for aside from some steel hooks and other stuff for around the shop, so it was nice to put it to work for something a little more interesting.
This table is actually one of four pieces that are being made from the same Walnut slab, pictured above before being cut into it’s different sections. Stay tuned for the rest.
Another one leaves the nest. #handmade #handcrafted #woodwork #furniture #design #toronto #walnut
First off… Let me apologize for this iPhone photo, I know it’s lame. I snapped this shot just after I put on the last coat of finish and didn’t manage to take any real photos.
This piece is a stand-up desk I built recently for a friends 30th birthday/15th year of DJing. His girlfriend commissioned the piece to replace what he was using to house his turntables, mixer, some vinyl, etc.
This thing is a beast, all steel base wrapped in steel sheet with an almost 2” thick old growth Pine top. The delivery guys were not happy.
This little side table/magazine rack combo is a personal project I just finished. After using Pine from the queen’s wharf on my last job I was itching to use some of the wood from that site again. Luckily I had a few short pieces of Maple that were the perfect candidates for this table.
A friend presented me with a few good ideas to take this design a little further, so v2 maybe coming soon. This little guy is available for sale on my Etsy shop… Here
