Trying to give my best impression of #SamMaloof. Happy Birthday Sam! He worked till 92, lived till 93, would've turned 103 yesterday. Lived in Pomona Valley, self-taught, Lebanese decent, efficiently-sized, brave scalp, big smiles, like me πŸ™ŒπŸ½ !! Love his inspiration for independence and authenticity. Love using his poly/oil finish. The white oak hardwood selected for this project looks great without stain. Perfectly suitable for the client's home, too. Since the shelf will display art collected from the client's travels, don't need to overdue it with high protection. High presentation is the object. After sanding up to 400 grit plus steel wool, 3 coats of the rub-on-rub-off formula does the trick. . . . #AndersArc #authenticfurniture #customfurniture #handcraftedfurniture #benchmade #woodworking #interiordesign #moderndesign #craftsmanship #functionalart #designandbuild

It was messy up until now. The simple shelf (from 2 posts ago) is glued up in 2 major parts, plus the mid section to be added on site. All white oak hardwood, sanded to 400 grit, then steel wooled. Poly/oil finish next. . . . #AndersArc #customfurniture #handcraftedfurniture #benchmade #woodworking #interiordesign #moderndesign #craftsmanship #functionalart #designandbuild

Slide out and play πŸ”Š Fun Town USA! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ™ŒπŸΏπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ½ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ This MLK record is the reason why my friend Marv bought an LdM Record Frame, and I am so moved, as always I have been about the Rev Doc. Here's Marv... "Every year on Martin Luther King Day, I play the oldest album in my collection. The album is named β€œMartin Luther King at Zion Hill”. I usually play one track that is a little more than 2 minutes and 50 seconds in length, the track is named β€œFun Town USA.” Fun Town USA was an amusement park in Georgia. Dr. King’s six-year-old daughter did not understand why she can’t go to Fun Town. Dr. King as a parent explains to his daughter with compassion why she could not go to Fun Town. This album was recorded in Los Angeles at my parents' local church named Zion Hill Baptist. My parents were in the audience in 1962 and they bought the album in my collection in 1963. In 2019, I purchase a record cover frame from Jorge #luzdemano and now this album is permanently displayed on my wall for everyone to see. You can hear the Fun Town USA speech on YouTube at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBTSW0ulOps." Thanks Marv @pomona.electric.chocolate! May the memory spin forever. May the cause play loud. And may you #keeptheneedleontherecord πŸ™πŸ½. . . . #MLK #MLKatZionHill #FunTownUSAspeech #LdMrecordframes #recordframe #records #interiordesign #moderndesign #homedecor #functionalart

Suppose to be a simple shelf to decorate the divide between dining room and living room. Well, it looked simple on paper when I drew it 😾⏩. Shopcat there to show scale, but you know he's sizing it up for a climb. Sorry, gato, gonna install at a client home. All white oak hardwood. #wip still needs glue, dowels, sand, and finish. . . . #AndersArc #customfurniture #builtin #LdMbuiltin #interiordesign #interiorarchitecture #moderndesign #homedecor #handcrafted #woodworking #functionalart #shelf #artshelf

πŸ”₯ So fired up for 2019, and hope you are too! But this should be the last time I fire up my chunti branding iron. Time to go pro with an electric one. Still though, proud of this piece, my seraph with wings of flame I carved and filed 10 yrs ago. After I burn it into a current commission and it cools off, I'll keep it in my pocket like a lucky half-dollar forever⚑️. #brandingiron #brandidentity #logo #handcrafted #seraph #seraphim

πŸŽ‰ Happy New Year! Resolution idea: install happiness for display – print more photos and frame them. Renew happiness every time you change out your photos 🌟. Exhibit the true beauty of your photographs while adding a handsome texture to your wall. #LdMphotoframes are handcrafted to the finest touch in small batches using select hardwoods. Perfect for 8x10 prints; just as perfect for anything cropped near that size because they "float" pressed between 2 panes of glass.

Sale price: $65 each (+tax, +shipping if applicable) on luzdemano.com (link in bio) thru 1/6/19. . . . πŸ“·: interior design by @sandikanekointeriors.

#LdMrecordframes πŸ‘ˆπŸ½ πŸ”Š Frame your records AND play them. Amplify your favorite record cover art. Mix a vintage vibe with a modern twist. Let the music reverberate off the walls. Change the art, change the tempo. If the collector still likes to spin records, then this is the next big hit, because you can slide the record (cover and all) in and out of the frame without removing the frame from the wall. Wherever the location, in whatever configuration, installation is easy. With one screw (provided with anchor), the frame basically balances itself. Each hardwood bracket is carefully handcrafted using select hardwood, then finished to a silky touch with a top-quality oil. Extending fine craftsmanship to all corners, each triple-strength glass pane is carefully edged for a smooth, frosty finish. These details award your records a stunning look and the power to turn any room 'round. Free local deliveries (Los Angeles, Orange County) for orders of 4 or more. (Reg. $75) SALE PRICE: $65 each on luzdemano.com (link in bio). 🀘🏻🀘🏼🀘🏽🀘🏾🀘🏿 . . . #keeptheneedleontherecord #recordframes #records #vinyl #recordcollector #recordcollection #moderndesign #interiordesign #homedecor #handcrafted #smallbatch #shopsmall #functionalart

#throwback to this rush from 3 yrs ago: LdM's first installation of the #LdMrecordframes. I hope you're enjoying rest from your holiday rush; hope it resulted in many joyful hearts, including your own.

So the New Year's frame sale starts now thru 1/6/19 on luzdemano.com (link in bio). $10 OFF, Sale price: $65 ea. (+tax +shipping). . . . πŸ“·: interior design by @graceblu.
