Here is a self nominated and self awarded list of our top ten birdmouse projects of 2015. It is a mix of both our artwork and furniture. Here we go:
#10 The Stan Desk
The client wanted a simple, clean design.
#9 Sarah's Eyeglass Display Case
We used the side boards from the collapsed community hockey rink on our property for this piece.
#8 Yoga Studio Reception Desk
The client wanted custom dimensions to hold bolsters and mats inside.
#7 F%#& This S%*#!
This video was more popular than the amount of snow the Maritimes received last winter. Snowmaggedon induced harsh language.
#6 Abstracts & The Super Blood Moon Series
Artwork is a more recent addition to our reclaimed wood repertoire. It took a more sophisticated turn this year which you can read about here.
#5 Habitat for Humanity Design Challenge
We created a puppet theatre from an old armoire for the win! After their debut at this event, we released our "Manana" logo t-shirts in our online store.
#4 Knitting Cabinet
The client wanted a personalized piece to showcase their family heirloom stained glass.
#3 Loft Ladders
This is something we never expected to be making and so had to review our trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA!).
#2 Watercolour Headboard
This custom piece incorporated the client's heirloom sewing machine and was based on a watercolour painting of the client's. You can read more about this project here.
Wow - these were just the highlights! We met so many amazing people over the year and it is truly an honour to create pieces that play a role in your homes and businesses. What will 2016 bring?
