Floating live edge shelf | How-To

So this floating live edge shelf was a quick 1-day build. Pretty straight forward, had to get a bit creative clamping/holding the shelf perfectly vertical while drilling, but it all worked out well!

Industrial Table | How-To

This is my first commissioned piece for a decor/furniture store located in Dunedin Florida. The client wanted a wood & steel industrial influenced table, they had also expressed a preference for lighter wood.

Although I had initially intended on using some contrasted hickory, I ended up with a few beautiful pieces of poplar--a severely underrated hardwood in my opinion.
