Over a span of 45 years I have built hundreds of early Canadian style pine furniture pieces. I now find I am developing an interest in three new styles.
- A more contemporary look
- Mid century modern
- A retro look of the 50s and 60s
I have included photos of 7 new pieces.
The 2 side tables are a more contemporary look with a combination of paint and stain, very different from my usual. The mid century modern look of the small red and yellow side tables were fun to build as well as a challenge to design and build.
The retro look of the bright red credenza and the multi coloured stained tv credenza are also a definite change from my usual.
I particularly enjoyed working with the bright red paint which was Tremclad’s “fire red”. The multi coloured TV crendza is made from pine from Chile giving it that bold grain pattern.
With most pieces it is pleasurable to stand back and view the finished product.As you might expect some pieces are more pleasing than others, but all in all I have been happy with my occupation of 45 years +.
Best wishes Ross Colby
