yep. One of the custom shop relics from the early 2000's. They didn't make many before stopping production (they were like $4K at the time, which was way more than the other CS teles), but they've started making them again. I also have a Japan version (also a Tele Custom, also sunburst), and an original '62 (also a Tele Custom, also sunburst).

I love my little drop leaf Tiger Maple table. With the leafs extended, the Tiger Maple really jumps! ( American 18th C. )

Very nice table indeed. I have my doubts about age though. What makes you think it is 18C?

Australian Silky Oak very popular in the 20s Arts and Crafts California Bungalow houses. It was used instead of English Oak (a la Frank L Wright 1/4 sawn). A native timber.

This one came to me this morning finally, is this a take on Kaare Klint's Safari chair (1933)?

Damn man, that's pretty good. I knew it was influenced by that style but not who. I don't know when teak became popular, but that original is in ash.

I took it to an upholsterer today for a minor repair to the leather and gave it a good clean. It has no markings on it at all that I can see, but its definitely well made.

That KK chair is pretty bad ass, look at the patina of the leather:




Here is the one I bought cleaned up:

I did an orchid planter. YouTube is brilliant. Never potted an orchid before, even though I have a few.





Finally finished this row of KLM Bols. If you don't know it, they are little Delfts Blue pottery Gin bottles KLM gave out on 1st class flight tickets. They're actual row houses in Amsterdam. Saw them in someone's house once at a xmas party and had to have some. Took me forever to put this set together.

Awesome. I believe teak become popular in the 50's in Denmark. I have a no-name danish teak tea cart that I'm currently using for a bar cart. It's missing a shelf at the bottom which I plan to build for it in the next couple weeks/months. A big part of the trouble is trying to find teak of a similar quality, they had spectacular stock to work with, where much of the current stock is plantation grown a bit too quickly.

I learned something new today. I never flew F class but used to fly KLM quite often and was not aware of this. The street looks awesome.

All the usual suspects, draw knife markings, joining techniques and the appraisal by the VP of Butterfields and Butterfields. He graciously made a house call appraising numerous items gratis, in hopes of consignments.
