Home Show Booth

This picture was taken of my booth at a home show about five years ago. I just took a digital picture of the old 35mm print.


As you can see I made mostly beds back then. Everything from toddler size to kings. I don't make many beds anymore.

Juniper,
Great looking stuff. Did they sell well back then, just curious. I would like to think they would. Where do you get the juniper wood for your projects?

Hi Mike,

Yes things sold pretty well at that time. I sold one queen size bed at that show, but within two months after the show, everything in that booth had been sold.

I get most of my juniper wood from land clearing projects. The eastern Oregon ranchers and farmers consider juniper to be a weed, and claim that it takes water from the ground. I get permission to glean what pieces I can after it has been clearcut and before it is burned.

I really love the contrast in the wood and also the twisted shape. If I had a vacation cabin, I would have to have furniture like that. How could you not?

Mike,
Why just in a vacation cabin? Personally, I love this type of furniture and whenever I get a chance to build something for my own house, as often as not it is a combination of milled lumber and branches/slabs.

JLG,
Every time I see photos of your work, I admire it all over again. I was in the Wood Gallery in Newport today looking at things, and no lamp in there is as cool as the ones you make.

MM,
I would have no problem putting this furniture in my house. I just always dream of having one of those cabins in the woods next to the lake where the deer and the antelope play........That's just the first thought that comes to mind.

I don't think that Juniper is available to me here in Canada but I have to say, that it is fantastic looking stuff. Great job on everything. (and here I thought that you only made lamps)
Love it!!!!
