Just before Christmas I had an email from an Executive Chef down in Florida. He was opening up a new restaurant and was searching for flatbread boards. He liked some of my other products and we worked together to come up with these 10×14″ walnut boards. The chartreuse edge was requested in order to match some of the same colour accents in the restaurant. They’ll be adding some rubber feet to the boards to keep them secure on the tables.
If you’re in Delray Beach, Florida, head over to Apeiro and grab a bite to eat on one of these boards! Remember that we’re always keen to work on custom orders no matter how big or small.
Last January was slow. Sometimes slow can be nice, time to get caught up on things, get those repairs done in the shop that you keep putting off, etc. That had been my plan for this January, I need a new assembly table, plus some dust collection revamping, a little electrical work, all in all a few weeks worth of repairs to get things running a little smoother. None of these repairs are essential, but they would make my day run a bit smoother.
So that was my plan, but plans sometimes change. I’ve spent the last few days ironing out a big commission with a restaurant in Florida (which seems hard to believe as I watch the blizzard outside), and packaging up some work to go to my latest stockist (more on that below). It looks like I’ve hit the ground running in 2015, and I’m pretty excited to be this busy right from the get go, as for the repairs, some have waited a year already to get done, so another few weeks won’t hurt…
The new stockist I mentioned above is the MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie, Ontario. The products in the picture above will be available in their gift shop later this month!
For those of you not in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), my work is always available at:
