February 2013

We recently added a one of a kind writing desk to our showroom floor.  With a wonderfully figured local Western Walnut top, a single pencil drawer and hairpin legs this makes a simple addition to almost any space.  This peice is 20" - 30" deep, 72" wide and 30" high and is $2,050. Also shown is one of our Studio dining chairs in Western Walnut.  If you would like to see this desk in person, please stop by The Joinery or contact us here.

One of The Joinery's favorite sushi restaurants to go to in Portland is Bamboo Sushi. We not only like them for their delicious traditional and signature rolls, but for their recognition as a sustainable company with what they serve and how they operate. Bamboo Sushi, like The Joinery is a certified B Corp. All of the fish Bamboo Sushi serves comes from an area where fish are plentiful and healthy and caught by avoiding any sort of damage on the ecosystem. All of their meats come from local ranches and are grass-fed, hormone free, and free range.

This beautiful extension dining table new to the showroom floor this week is a unique piece in our studio style.  It is made out of Eastern Walnut but is fairly unusual with the strong sap lines. The size of this table is 42" x 66" with 2 leaves that store inside, therefore able to extend out to 110" long with the leaves in.  The retail price is $3,905.  If you would like more information about this dining table please click here or contact us here. Shown below are the Celilo Dining Chairs in Western Walnut with a Live Edge Split back.

At The Joinery we rely on our crafstmen for their skills, ideas and their hard work everyday. So every so often we like to feature one of our many wonderful crafters. Featured this time is Dale.

Dale has worked for The Joinery for many years and took a few years off and then came back us this past year and we are happy to have him back. We usually feature descriptions about the craftsperson's favorite wood and favorite piece of furniture but this time we thought Dale's extra curricular activity was too fun to not mention. See photos and specs below on Wild Spirit Racing, Dale's other life.
