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!
This little Maple slab coffee table is a personal project Iv’e been chipping away at for a little while now, spending a small portion of each day at the shop on it. It served two purposes: an experiment, and I just needed a very small coffee table.
My first time doing butterfly keys was on this table, they turned out OK but I’m glad they weren’t for a paying customer. I also tried out a new product for blackening steel which I didn’t end up liking very much; it doesn’t seem like it will stand the test of time, so again I’m glad it’s not going to a client.
All in all, I am pretty happy with this little table, especially considering the whole thing was just a test. It was good to try out some new things and also get something useable out of it.
