I haven’t been fishing in almost 8 years and it’s probably been 10 years since I actually caught one. So the other day I made it a point to scribble in some time to just go do it. I did, and this is the result! I also caught a tree limb, but I figured it wasn’t picture worthy. Enjoy.
I hate stopping at all the stop signs as much as the next person, but this time was different. I guess I finally looked past the sign and saw the art in the sky. It felt good for a second, but then I realized I was still pissed about stopping for the stop sign!
At 115 inches long, this piece was truly a pain in the ass, to put it nicely. Not that it was hard by any means, it was just in the way. As many of you know I have slowly made my way out of the furniture business, though I always seem to find a way back into it. I started making these signs on etsy, http://www.kingstoncreations.etsy.com and moved to a much smaller shop where making massive pieces like this are space consuming to say the least. In the end, it was still fun to do. All the boards in this build were salvaged pieces from the 1800′s. The coolest thing about the whole build is the light colored trim around the top. Those boards were actually pieces of the roof from the house that this piece was commissioned for. The contractor vaulted the ceilings and had most of these boards going in the dumpster. Needless to say when we installed it and told the customer the story behind the top she was floored. Hope you enjoy.
