Residential Woodworking Virginia
Modern homeowners have become accustomed to traveling to Ikea to solve storage issues they face as their family grows, instead of turning to a local craftsman to build a sturdy set of shelves to withstand the daily wear and tear their little soccer players throw around with their cleats. Ikea and similar products use a substitute for solid wood, called medium density fiber board to build with because inch for inch it’s cheap. We are glad to build you a shoe shelf in solid wood – but we can’t compete with the economics of Walmart. However, if you like the idea of a shoe shelf with a beautiful solid wood grain or live edge strong enough for your little troupers to sit on for the full 18 years of their growth and development – give us a ring to quote your project. We can help you pick a walnut or dark grained look to stand out against a white wall. Or we can help you find a burled oak or other exotic grain structure to frame the shoe tying lessons with your three year old – and the life lesson talks with your 16 year old.
Set your sites on multi-generational quality
You can get a $20 bench seat organizer from Target – but we are here for you if you wish to frame the experience of raising your family on furniture, storage or other custom elements that will carry the memories, the warmth and the love of all those experiences through several generations. It was the perspective of your grandparents, and we are here to serve the design to build needs of anyone seeking to have heirloom style pieces created.
When we speak of trends, we concern ourselves with changes, with shifts in style from here to there and back again. Trends are peripheral, yet we can lose ourselves in too blind a concern for them. Central to the changes is something else. If we have to give a name to this centrality, and I guess we do, one name is “Spirit.” Every fashion, every trend, every style may function as a gateway to the central significance of the aesthetic experience if the individual persists. That is, though we follow trends or get on bandwagons we can always get off and head towards the eternal significance, Spirit. At best styles and trends and fashions are but clothes for the raison d’etre of any art. At the worst, fashions, styles and trends function as traps for the unwary. I will treat here of a tradition, a concept and a discipline, namely the concept or theory called “Equivalence,” by which any style, fashion or trend may be worked through to something beyond the conformism of competition.
