Outdoor Bar

Yesterday we got to make this outdoor bar come to life for our client as a birthday surprise for his wife. The main goal…

  • Build a custom bar to fit their space
  • Make it weather safe
  • AND get it done in one day (while his wife was away).

Done, done and done. We think it turned out great and the solar lights the client installed makes the space really inviting.

Custom Serving Tray

This past week we worked on a custom serving tray with a wood burnt family name on it.

The customer wanted a dark wood with a little red coloring to it and walnut was the way to go! We sanded and sealed it in cutting board oil. Doing that makes this tray a bit more versatile as it’s safe to use to serve food and also as a cutting board.

We also opted to burn the family name on the board instead of painting it. That takes a bit more time but it’s worth it if they do opt to use it as a cutting board at some point.

And here’s the finished product!

Extra Large Serving Tray

We received a request this month for a custom Charcuterie Board. Our client loves to entertain and serves up beautiful trays of food. BUT because she typically entertains large groups of people she’s been on the hunt for a large Charcuterie Board to serve everyone at once. But her search and up empty, until she found us.

This serving tray only had three requirements

    Measure 20″ x 30″
    A small lip (to keep food contained)
    Medium wood stain

Now she’s got all she needs for her next big gathering! I can’t wait to see what she serves up on this next.

Dining Room Table, with Multiple Stains

I’m going to step back in time and show you this dining room table we did this past winter. These clients had a table they fell in love with but it was WAY our of their budget. So they asked if we could make it for cheaper and I’m glad that we could. You don’t have to spend thousands and thousands to have handmade furniture… just talk to us and ask if we can we can create something for you that’s within your budget.

Now back to this table. The original table that was out of reach finacially had different types of wood pieced together to create the top. To keep this project in budget we keep the type of wood the same but stained each to recreate the same look. Turned out pretty good, right?

Farmhouse Table

This is post 3 of 3 for our recent projects with The Family Room in Laytonsville, MD. This shop is very unique. It’s a gift shop. It’s a coffee, snack and ice cream shop. It’s a reading nook. It’s a build a puzzle, play a game or just come and hangout shop. It really is amazing.

And it’s also in need of a large table to make all of this community happenings possible. Enter… a rustic farmhouse table with seating for 10-12 people. It’s long and skinny and perfect for all of the gatherings that will take place around it. And can we just take a moment to appreciate how awesome those legs look? Thank you… you make proceed to take in the rest of the pictures.



We love this table and all of the promise that it holds for our dear friends. Here’s to the coolest shop around opening it’s doors to you tomorrow Feb, 16, 2018.

Window Bar

Today I’m bringing you project 2 of 3 for The Family Room in Laytonsville, MD. The shop needs additional seating, eating and workspace… preferably taking advantage of their great end unit location overlooking trees. The biggest requirements…

  • Budget. Keep it as low cost as possible for this project.
  • Built in. This needs to be a built in piece, not a movable piece of furniture.

The biggest issue… location. A window bar isn’t as straight forward as other bars because you have no wall (or in this case, low walls to attach it to). But Joel was able to provide great support and still give it a “floating” appearance. I’m telling you, that man can do anything.
