This summer I built a series of tables for the Van Buren School District in Arkansas. They have a fantastic new music teacher who sees a more casual way of introducing music in his classrooms. He is a traveling teacher with numerous schools under his command. With these modular Rumba Tables, he is able to swap out instruments from different classrooms, like you or I would swap personal identities, or pet microchip implants. It works very well and the school district is in the works to have more instruments for the coming year. Stay tuned for cool photos from the classroom. Its always exciting to see new uses for our designs. In this series of photos is also a puffy cloud photo out the woodshop's doorway into the inner SE Portland's industrial neighborhood. We are so industrial here at Musical Furnishings. And puffy cloudy.
I recently completed a Musical Solo Table for a delightful couple and their extended family. The name Solo isn't from Hans Solo, but rather the fact that this isn't a trio table, or even a duet. It is a table designed for the sole expression of the single, solitary individual playing at that moment - unless more people play. Right? Right.
I found an amazing new source for cedar in Portland... Custom Cedar Products. I made some of the most beautiful and melodic benches ever this summer. And my shop smelled pretty for weeks! Good times, good benches. They sell for $1300 and are easily shipped UPS. Just saying.
A wonderful family that owns a music store in Madrid commissioned a cedar floored chest for their living room. It looks wonderful in the photo they sent. And the file name was spelled all cute and Euro ~ "foto.jpg" Before and after shipment:
