Companies We Love: Everybody's Brewing

Doug and Christine, owners of  Everybody's Brewing, was kind enough to donate The Joinery beer for our 30th anniversary party in June.  We had both their Goodwill IPA and their Daily Bread Common Ale on tap, both of which are very delicious.  They are located in White Salmon, WA in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge and they craft their beer on site and feature a wonderful menu full of seasonal, local ingredients.

Fresh on the floor: Robin's Perch

Fresh on the floor this week is the Robin's Perch in Cherry. This little bench is so versatile you can put it almost anywhere.  It works well behind sofas, in small foyers, or at the dining table when additional seating is needed. The two boards on the top are slightly tapered towards the middle which makes the bench both beautiful and very comfortable. The Robin's Perch is available in two lengths 36" and 48". Shown below in Cherry the 36" Robin's Perch is $565 and is 14" deep and 17"h. See more images of the Robin's Perch click here.

HANDCRAFTED FURNITURE CLASSES

Instead of purchasing your next furniture piece from The Joinery, you can build it yourself at one of our furniture classes for the same price. Classes still available this year are an Arts and Crafts Bed, a Hope Chest and a Modern Pencil Post Bed. See information about all three classes here.

Today is the first day of the Rocking Chair class which filled up quickly. The students will be gluing up their seats, cutting out some of the pieces tonight and then will be back on Saturday and Sunday to create their own handcrafted James or Leon Rocker.

Here are some images of some previous classes.

Fresh on the floor: Studio Dining Table

Fresh on the floor this week is one of the most unique Studio Dining Tables we've seen - it features very sappy Western Walnut. This piece is a show stopper and should be the focal point of any room.

Spaces We Love: Bovina Residence

This modest 1,880 square foot home located in Bovina, NY has captured our hearts. Not only is it simply beautiful but architect Kimberly Peck designed the home with budget and energy efficiency in mind. The house was carefully sited to take advantage of the amazing views but windows were used sparingly to reduce heat loss in the extreme winters.
