I know it's Valentines and all, but when you got both hands on the rope.... If you got dreams, #holdfirm. @kaiart, based in LA, is spreading love all over the world. Let him inspire you. "Stay up," as he says. This recent work of his moved me to push past what I thought was impossible. #dtla #streetart #art #kaiart

Part one of Sully's Bunk is complete – the capsule which will hold the full-size mattress 5 feet above young Sully's work station. Made entirely of pine plywood plus about a gallon of glue and a few pounds of screws. See the scaled model πŸ‘‰πŸ½ #SullysBunk. Much more production expected this month. #interiorarchitecture #interiordesign #customfurniture #moderndesign #handcrafted #woodworking #functionalart #LdMfurniture

Drawing station relocated πŸŒβ˜€οΈ. In the foreground, once a living room, is 150 sq ft of open workspace. Now one can switch from drawing to building to redrawing in a pivot. #justgettingstarted #LdMhomestudio #designstudio #handdrawing #designandbuild

Happy Monday! Happy to share official photos of LdM's latest creation and delivery. Original design, all handcrafted. Inspired and commissioned by a wonderful couple who extend themselves for family supper with their kids and grandkids. Made entirely of African mahogany, including the rails. Legs are further apart at opposite ends of the extended table so that two people can sit comfortably between them. The triple-tiered skirt super-enforces the durability of the tabletop and its connection to the legs, all combined without screws or nails. 48" diameter, extends to "78.

Demonstrating the rail function on this fresh commission, adding 1 of 2 extensions. Client criteria: circular with bowed legs extending to the max. The 3-layered skirt super-enforces strength and durability of the tabletop as well as the connection to the beefed up legs. Should last 100+ yrs. [48"d x 29"h, extending to 78"] Made of African mahogany w/o screws or nails. ... #customfurniture #modernfurniture #moderndesign #handcraftedfurniture #handcrafted #benchmade #interiordesign #woodworking #functionalart #LdMfurniture #LdMdiningtable #LdMhomestudio

Looping around this fresh commission while touring the living room. Emptied the room just before the shoot; now officially part of the LdM home studio workshop. The next commission is a loft structure of sorts, so the extra space is necessary. Anyway, the table was a great delight to design and make, particularly because of the friends who ordered it and were so wonderful to work with. See it extend in the following post...

Till the wheels fall off. Boom or bust. 2017 was like walking a burning tightrope. Rode a thin line hard along the way to independent craftsmanship. This #flashback goes back to Summer, just an example of a year full of trials. But we made it across with even more conviction. Could've been real bad. Got off the freeway coming back from the lumber yard a moment before this happened. Truck took a nosedive, and my wheel bounced and rolled 1/4 mile down the street without hitting anybody. Was at least 2 months late on the mortgage at the time. The mechanic fixed me up the next day and let me pay him 2 weeks later. What a wonderful world. I've always felt like the luckiest guy in the world. Could be a seraph watching over me. Definitely, also, not without the love and support from family and friends. Thank you World! β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½πŸ€˜πŸ½βœŠπŸ½πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ ...Hope y'all are feeling good. Best wishes flashing forward to 2018 ✌🏽️✨

#diningtable in progress. (Plus another 4-legged development if you swipe πŸ‘‰πŸ½πŸΆ who also wants to wish you a Merry Christmas!) Legs, skirt, and tabletop still need to be glued together for super-enforced strength and durability. And of course all the sanding still awaits. Expect an extension next, to seat 10.

#Flashback to yesterday's #throwback, a Christmas Special from 2009, dining table + benches made of cherry hardwood.

Feeling the holiday spirit yet? This 2009 #throwback makes it easy to remember the rush and excitement in preparing for the festivities. Staged at @phlightwhittier just for the photoshoot, just before delivering in time for Christmas, is this commissioned #diningtable + benches made of cherry hardwood. The underside's design treatment was really a treat for the kids, where they/we all inevitably play (without the candles). You have to see πŸ‘‰πŸ½ #LdMdiningtable. The mirror, #LdMoriginalportal, a reflection of the table's underside, remains at the restaurant πŸŽ„πŸŒŸ. Wishing y'all an authentically merry day! ... πŸ“·: @melaniesoleil ... #customfurniture #furnituredesign #interiordesign #handcrafted #handcraftedfurniture #benchmade #woodworking #functionalart
