🍻 Cheers! It's happy hour at the #LdMhomestudio, on the eve of the delivery of this featured table, #LdMnelsontable. I'll try more photos in the morning light for a better look at color and finish.

#tbt to 2015, this transformational bedroom unit was commissioned by the same bold, modern man who commissioned the current dining table in progress (#LdMnelsontable). He asked for a pedestal bed to look like it's floating, drawers below the mattress, a bench in the corner, a headboard to support his writing posture, and minimal footboard. Along with wall-to-wall utility, LdM suggested the addition of the lights with a bedside dimmer since he sits up to work before the sun does. So far, we're 2 for 2 in manifesting the visions in his mind into real, high-value solutions.

Flipping over forwards to demonstrate the strength and agility of the #LdMnelsontable. Without any hardware, the legs are secured within the tabletop's thickness (1.75") using grooves, splines, holes and dowels. Made of Afromosia (Aftican teak) and glass. Sanding complete – might as well've been sanding marble. Finish in progress.

Now that it's standing strong on its own two legs, I get to show you this dining table in progress. With one of the legs being glass, ya, my own knees were a shaking. Commissioned by a return client, old friend and former boss; you'll see his idea in the last slide ⏭ brilliant or crazy? I was like woah...and totally loved the challenge. Thanks for your trust and confidence, bossman! Engineered and handcrafted by LdM. Made of Afromosia (African teak), glass, glue, and no hardware. Detailing, sanding and finish to come. . . #LdMnelsontable #customfurniture #moderndiningtable #diningtable #moderndesign #modernfurniture #handcrafted #benchmade #woodworking #interiordesign #functionalart

The owner of @korrayoga is in great pain, but look how happy he is rolling his new reception desk around...struttin' in zen because of the result of his drive, our collaboration, instinctual design πŸ•‰. Before his knee busted (his shoulder already busted), he put on his carpenter's pants and made me let him work side by side with me in the LdM home studio workshop. Hello comfort zone!? Talk about pain... darn yogi. Anyway, his vision, LdM supervision, our labor in tandem, and wallah! Excellent job @rodd_rigo amigo! And btw, your studio looks and feels amazing. Proud of you! #LdMatKorra πŸ‘ˆπŸ½πŸ‘€ ...

The story at @korrayoga studio continues... where the owner/friend wanted to build the studio's front desk himself using old material he reclaimed. So we built it together at the LdM home studio workshop. With his vision in mind, we allowed the material on hand to influence the design direction. The result is solid. Heavy use of iron brush, light use of sandpaper, no use of stain, three thick coats of clear satin polyacrylic, and wallah! The desired effect of function, form and vibe delivered. Excellent job @rodd_rigo amigo!
