San Marcos Fire Department Custom Woodworking- Functional Art- Station Table

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today is my first blog post. My goal is to showcase some of my projects ranging from heirloom furniture, functional art, custom cabinetry or precious stone in wood inlays. I hope to give an idea of how my project go from an idea, to a design and finally to reality.

I was commissioned to make a station table for the San Marcos Fire Department. They recently had built a new firehouse and needed a table that would accommodate staff and set them apart from the other stations. They also wanted a work of art and something and that would last for generations.

When I was contacted, I sat down and talked with the project manager. He himself a firefighter was additionally tasked with finding the perfect table to distinguish their firehouse. I was excited because they liked my drawings, were open to new ideas and unusual touches. The project manager found some vintage equipment which he gave to me with the hope that I could incorporate it into the piece. They also wanted their fire house insignia handcrafted into an inlay.

You can see from the pictures that I decided the use the fire ladder down the center of the table. The vintage hydrants became the legs for the two benches and the insignia ended up becoming two separate distinct inlays on either end of the table.

Take a look and please post comments below. I hope you enjoy!
