Getting to see where my pieces live in their new homes is fun but I’m always sad to see them go, after spending so much time, so many hours crafting them, selecting each board, planning out every little detail that goes in to each piece. Stevie and I delivered this piece to an amazing client in upstate New York to her newly finished cabin. It was on a tiny lake, surrounded by mountains on all sides. The place was beautiful and I was proud to be a small part of the project.
I’ve gotten so many requests for custom brass bases, I’ve started Reform Brass. Right now I’m just making hairpin legs. You can find out more and order them here:
They were written up in a nice post on Design Sponge!
Stevie and I were a part of a photo shoot for Ruffled, a wedding blog.
Sarah Park from Sarah Park Events contacted me about borrowing some tables and benches for a styled photo shoot. It sounded like fun so I said yes. Then she asked if we wanted to be the best man and maid of honor, since we were going to be there already. Sure why not.

The tables and benches look pretty damn good but more importantly check out my beautiful wife!
I moved to a new shop space last Friday. It was quite the process.
Stevie and I moved to the Hampden neighborhood in Baltimore, in February. I’ve been excited to find a new work space closer to home, and thought I was close on a few different places. Those fell through for one reason or another but now I realize it was all for a good reason. I finally found my dream space close to home, in an old mill in the historic Woodberry neighborhood. It’s got huge south facing windows to let in a lot of natural light, something I didn’t have in the last place, that I’m super excited about. (It’s also got a bathroom, a loading dock, gas heat, and 3 phase power, all things I didn’t have in the last space, that I’ll never take for granted)
Now the fun of setting everything up can begin!
I think being a husband and a father are probably two of the most important things a man does with his life. On April 5th I got to become one of those. (With the 2nd, I’m sure, not too far off) My fiance, Stevie, and I got married and it couldn’t have been more perfect. My uncle Terry traveled from Seattle to marry us, We all sat around a 16′ long walnut table Stevie and I worked on together, and spent the whole weekend with our family in a big house overlooking the bay.
And since Stevie’s a better story teller than I am, you can read more about it on our personal blog: http://theworstbandever.com/
We’ll have lots more pictures to share soon, but iphone pics will have to do for now.
Has a great new website! http://designhunterla.com/
Veronica and I worked together on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for 4 seasons. She started working for the show one episode before me. She was a design producer/art director for the show and is one of the most talented designers I know. She got me involved with the first MLB Fan Cave up in NYC in 2011 and a few other projects.
Check out her website and be sure to follow what she’s up to.
