International Contemporary Furniture Fair -ICFF 01

On May 19th and 20th, 2007, Gigi and I covered the International Contemporary Furniture Fair also know as the "ICFF".

Thanks to Kara Tobin of Tobin and Tucker; our access to exhibiting designers provided for exceptional information that all of us can think on.

Hopefully with each of the following episodes, I will get you the feel of this prestigious show.

I selected exhibiting designers that I fealt had something to offer. My judgement proved itself when I learned "HIDA" won the Craftsmanship award. I probably have the only interview. It is in Japanese and is in the process of being translated.

Enjoy this opening taste as I prepare our interviews for posting.Â

Lingerie Cabinet - Finish Samples and Drawers Episode 7

Back again for another webisode of Building a Contemporary Lingerie Cabinet.

Of course we start with taking care of the buisness of woodworking then proceed to make color samples for the finish on our piece. We'll go through the process of finding a finish we like, beginning with shellac, and even enter the realm of testing for a custom finish.

From Finish Samples we move to edging the drawers, where we'll address design elements and wood selection that will aid in finishing efficiencies.

The case takes a life on this webisode......ENJOY!!!!!
