Prairie Woodworking has a new website! It is a little cleaner, with loads of images, and –we hope — provides a better way to get a sense of Prairie Woodworking. our designs, and the kinds of projects we love to do. We’ve also added an online store — our first venture into e-commerce.
It also has a blog/news page — which means we won’t be updating this site (except maybe to remind readers to check out the new site). So if you’re coming here for all the Prairie Woodworking news that’s fit to post, we hope you’ll check out www.prairie-woodworking.com instead!
Custom fireplace mantle with tiles from Clay Squared
Many of the projects we’re involved with involve the talents of many people — lots of them local business owners and local craftspeople. This beautiful fireplace, recently installed in Highland Park, involved the talented folks at Clay Squared for the wasabi-colored tiles and at Woodland Stove and Fireplaces (for the gas insert). We designed the handsome fireplace surround and mantle. So proud of this project!
It better really be spring now — we put up some new, bright window decorations in the windows at Prairie Woodworking. Lake Street was ready for some bright colors!
The leaves are easy to make — fold a paper in half, cut a leaf shape, then fold!
Folding the paper gives them some dimension and creates interesting lights and shadows. Oooh – I just noticed that the tree outside still doesn’t have leaves….
