New oft stuff for the new year!

As always, we've been pretty swamped with orders (thanks to you guys!), but as you can tell, I'm unable to stop thinking about new ideas and options. I'm really trying to get a lot of new products and options available in the shop by the new year that I've been messing around with after hours, which seems to be what we've done the last 2 years!

I made a set of bar stools for my sister with a simple curved plywood seat with a Pendleton wrapped pad. They worked out pretty well for her and were really fun to make so we've decided to put them into production and sell them in the shop! I just made a jig for welding the bases and have been working on glue-ups for different wood options so these should be ready by the new year, maybe even sooner. I'm going to have two different heights at first, at 24" and 30". I'm calling these the Stout and Porter bar stools, named after my two favorite types of beer, which I think is fitting. Finally a chair I can name after beer! The Stout is the 24" and the Porter is 30". There will be different wood and Pendleton pattern options to chose from on these too.

I mocked up a clamp-on desk lamp a while back and have played around with it again recently. I added our new bell-shaped shade and a little outlet into the side of the wood clamp as a potential option. The lamp swivels from side to side and the wood clamp is solid Walnut that will clamp onto desktops up to 1-1/2" thick.

This "tripod" chair is another old prototype that I brought back. I recently went to AZ to spend time with grandpa and learn as much as I could about sewing in the weekend I was there. My grandpa recovers motorcycle seats and has been doing it for a long time. He tracked down an old Consew industrial sewing machine for me which I bought and have been practicing on. We recovered my seat for my Yamaha R5 and I learned alot with that one seat. I sewed up these pads for the tripod chair with 2" thick high-density foam for the seat. I put ribs in the seat for extra comfort.

My friend mentioned the other day that she wished she had a small shoe rack, so naturally, I couldn't stop thinking about one until I came up with this idea. Basically a longer, deeper version of our plywood guitar hook. The shoes tuck in snug and really stay put. This one is out of molded teak plywood and about 36" long. I'm still figuring out pricing and sizing and don't know exactly when this will be available but keep an eye out for it in the shop. I also usually post about upcoming products and availabilities in my Instagram feed.

I powdercoated the wheels on my R5 with this cream color that I ended up really liking. So, I decided to try it out on a few of our lamps and stuff to see how it would look. This is our desk lamp prototype and an iPad stand with the cream color. We decided we love it, and are going to be offering it on our existing and upcoming products. I'm calling the color option Cafe Cream, since it was inspired by my motorycle build that is very much a cafe racer style bike.
