Distressed Industrial Desk | How-to

This is without a doubt one of my favorite builds! 

A client of mine recently commissioned me to design and build an industrial desk for his office--and well, lately I've been obsessed with pictures of old abandoned factories so I tried to work that aesthetic into the design, and this is what I came up with.

Special thanks to my Patrons, as well as Lincoln Electric, and Waterlox for sponsoring my work and making this possible!

Modern Live Edge Waterfall Coffee Table Collaboration Part 2 | How-To

Wow, this was an absolute blast! This was a collaborative build with my fellow hosts of "The Crafted Podcast"--Johnny Brooke of Crafted Workshop, and James Wright of Wood by Wright. 

We each tackled different aspects of the build. I was responsible for forging the two drawer pulls, and fabricating the metal leg, Johnny tackled the slab and the waterfall leg, and James worked his 19th century wizardry on the drawer and dovetail slides.
