My Husband the Craftsman

Family, The Tinderbox

DSC_5568I am proud of my partner for many reasons, but when I look at the tables he has built, I fall a little bit more in love with him. He is such an honest and thorough guy, and you can see that in the furniture he builds. He works away in the garage after his full-time job, paying attention to every detail, and ensuring the highest quality. I may be biased, but these may be some of the best looking tables in Houston!

This is a stunning live edge table made from a virtical slice of warm red cedar resting on steel hairpin legs. The table has been finished in a rich warm brown allowing plenty of the grain and red accents of the cedar slab to show through. It has been finished in several coats of semigloss polyurethane giving it a deep clearcoat finish.

This table is made from a reclaimed douglas fir timber. Its strong texture, grooved by hand,  allows for a very high contrast. We have two of these in the shop, and they are gorgeous! He finds wood from many salvage places around town, and the legs he uses are all 100% recyclable handcrafted steel.

  1. Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!|
