Hot town, summer in the city

Hot outside, hot inside:  believe it or not, we just got our AC installed last weekend, so the workshop has been HOT in more ways than one.  When it's mid-80's and humid, the iced coffee at The Daily Press and the smoothies from the juice guy next door can have a major impact on quality of life.  Temperature aside, we've been turning out lots of new things:  New chairs, sofas and ottomans, along with an enhanced website so you can actually buy online!  Check it out.

Luckily, we've also had some time off, and some of us headed for a pond near Waterford, Maine.  Here is your moment of Zen:

Shop's open...Stop by!

Well, it's been a crazy month but we've moved into our new studio space in Crown Heights!  We literally went from an empty room without electricity to a showroom and workshop space in three weeks.  And we love it.  Plenty of room, lots of color and great work and storage spaces.  

Special thanks to Taryn Christoff of Christoff Finio.  She really anticipated needs that I didn't know I had, and it makes a difference every day.  Also thanks to Sam Zeif for his drawings and visits to Home Depot, and to Andrew Zeif for sheer strength and moral support.  And finally, thanks to my apprentice, Sonja Beck Gingerich for rolling with the punches and coming to work without fail--even when we worked by daylight!

Come by and see us!
