When Marisa wanted to expand her store and update the vibe She called her favorite woodworker / Husband and said "you need to rebuild my store". He said "do I have a Choice"? Marisa Said "Yes" but meant "no". Dave said "Okay, let's do it". So we did. Above are the photos of her store that we renovated in early 2017. The arched door was cut into a cinderblock wall. An american clay plaster was applied to all the block wall and redwood was used to clad the new workshop and walls. The cash wrap and cabinetry were all custom made as well.
Bleached Maple Knife Strip for Quitokeeto.com
"We had Jacob May hand-craft these bleached maple knife strips to showcase knives in our San Francisco studio. Pale, bleached maple is offset with brass hardware in a gesture of beauty and functionality. Neodynium magnets make the strips strong enough to handle large cleavers and chef's knives. The strips keep knives safe from damage and allow for easy access. A lacquered finish protects the strips and makes them easy to clean. We currently have a limited amount of them, but if there is demand, we'll produce more.
To install: The strips couldn't be simpler to mount (Heidi installed the ones at the studio in less than five minutes). Each one comes with a small kit including: detailed mounting instructions, the brass hardware and anchors, and the appropriate drill bit. Because of the anchors, locating studs in your wall isn't necessary. Aside from the included kit, you just need to have (or borrow ) a drill.
