We had a pretty solid day in the shop, starting with a custom checker board slab with live edges heading out to a waiting client. I love doing these- it's a three day turn around with pyrography, stains, sanding and finish and the end result always looks stunning. We have a larger version set up on our bar.
We also started the first coat of poly on a client's twin chess cabinets. Two more days and those will be posted as well- She had a great idea for Father's Day, which entailed ordering matching sets. One for herself, and one for her dad so they can play correspondence chess. I'm looking forward to hearing her father's reaction when he opens it.
For the next few days, I figure I'll be working on some boxes for stock, while at the same time updating our current items on the website. It looks like the site will take as much time as the workshop, but I'm ok with that. After all, it's something I do for other people so doing it for myself will be a breeze, right? Look for more images on our Insta feed over at About Us, and plenty of finished products coming your way for purchase. Don't forget Mother's Day is just around the corner and we ship where ever you wish with a nice, handwritten note as a courtesy:)
The day is drawing to an end, and I've some snuggling planned with my better half. Enjoy this early glimpse of summer, and I'll see you around the workshop!
Though NH Woodworks has been a place where good people could find great heirlooms for a while now, it was becoming painfully obvious that not having an online shop and information hub was holding us back. So, as of today, we can proudly say we have joined the online community and have developed our very own website.
Here, we will share DIY tips, photos from the shop, project ideas, shout-outs and a calendar of sorts of where you can find us in the real world, whether it be crafts fairs, farmers markets or galleries.
Stay tuned and enjoy the ride!
