Phil’s outsourcing the woodworking so he can play more with his tambouring. Ramon’s turning the turret on the Valdez jig inventory, along with working on the Origin of some inlayquetry. And Ben’s been lost in the world of bid-land for so long he still thinks OSB only costs $28.

The incredibly talented, Sarah Watlington, joins us again. But this time we’re trying something a little different by going on a deep design dive with her about her absolutely stunning, Heron Chair. We felt it would be interesting to do a concentrated conversation on this one piece, and as it turns out, we think the feeling was a pretty darn good one. From its conception, as a design, designed to hurt, to its’ build evolution and construction, during a 2nd year 2nd semester at the Krenov School, we hear about the challenges and techniques of building something that speaks a familiar existing language and yet has something beautifully new to say. Hope you find it as interesting as we did. Join us won’t you?

Furniture designer and maker, Sarah Watlington, joins the podcast. Listen in as we have the pleasure of hearing how she has carved out a spot for herself in the custom furniture world. From how her early interior design training led to more hands on finely crafted work that led her to The Krenov School, and how those trainings helped accelerate her to the works she does now as the project manager for Offerman Woodshop. Fabulous work and a fantastic conversation. Join us won’t you.

Long time no pod. The band’s back together! Same woodworking wanderings but with a new fancy sound system (the industry term is microphones). Phil gains an inch. Ramon likes a little inlay with a side of marquetry. And Ben’s got a finger-cam for Phil... Ahhh it’s good to be back!!
