My long weekend personal project: A low stool, my take on a shaker farm stool. Quarter sawn white oak seat, hand turned white oak legs, wedged mortise and tenon joinery, natural oil and wax finish.
A recently finished custom piece, open shelving unit with a “gold tooth”. Patinated solid steel, hand brazed solid brass and oxidized maple.
It took me about six months, but I finally got some shots of a couple of add-on fixtures I did for In VIntage We trust back in the spring. A lit wall cabinet for pins and patches which incorporates some vintage olive drab and some expanded steel shelving for caps join the rest of the fixtures I did for them last fall.
IVWT has just launched a brand new website and a few collaborative projects of their own in store, including my favorite, their collaborative collection with Ebbets Field Flannels. If you are in toronto and like well curated vintage put IVWT on your to do list, if you aren’t in Toronto their online shop launches soon, so keep an eye out for that.

Very happy to see the Nathan sofa on this list.
Finally have some pictures of the build I wrapped up this past November for In Vintage We Trust’s brand new retail location in Toronto’s Parkdale neighborhood. Everything was built in solid Maple and blackened steel for a clean and uniform look. I designed the tall display units to be modular; the various components can be mixed in various combinations to allow for easy merchandizing changes.
IVWT specializes in workwear, athletic, military and pop culture pieces. The store is excellently curated and I highly suggest you stop in.

I just finished off this custom American Cherry writing desk yesterday afternoon, which I designed and built for a couple of friends’ home office.
American Cherry, solid steel with an antique gun metal patina and dovetailed Maple drawer boxes.
Drawer faces are on, this baby is almost ready to go to it's new home! #cherry #woodworking #handmade #furniture #design #toronto
