Meet FourEyes

Say hello to our new little business, Foureyes.

"Sha-ha.....gyeah" (In my best Jay-Z impersonation)

We've started our own furniture design/building company. Custom furniture, made by hand, in America (more like our garage) using honesty quality materials, to your specifications, when you order it.  


I still can't believe I am FINALLY writing this post...I've been daydreaming of this for over a year, when Chris declared he was ready to put his woodworking skillz to the test. I remember that day...I promptly requested that he build me a bed...and a know, the essentials. In the interim I've come up with several terrible wood puns, each of which was accompanied by the old one-two elbow and  "eh?". But in all seriousness, we are officially in the furniture biz. Sure we're small potatoes, but if I may toot my own horn, I think we've got some good looking spuds here.

Enough with the chitter chatter. Lets get our foureyes on, shall we? 

Enter Silverfox. My favorite piece so far. I mean, just look at those gams. Awooga! Stretch out them legs and you've got yourself a dapper writing desk.

Next we have Welcmoe. Before you say anything, the product name is based on a silly family story that's been in rotation for as long as Chris can remember. It's one of those knee-slapper kind of stories which I will share, with full deets, in a future post.

Anywho, Welcmoe is part of our introductory line of tables. I like to say it's part DIY since you put it together yourself in less than 5 minutes. It has zero hardware (yay) and ships flat (yay squared). Not too shabby, eh?

Another favorite, Sevin -ST. Ok, they are all my favorite, but you know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, Sevin Side Table is worth a million words. So I'm a little biased. Roll with me.

Last but not least, I bring you my face.

We call this, 'It's You'. Remember when I said I've been re-vamping our master bedroom. Well, besides painting the walls, the only thing we've done to the space is put up gigantic wooden faces of ourselves. But come on. Who doesn't want their face on their wall?! Custom wooden faces, big or small, can be yours. And I've got to admit, I think I look pretty good in wood.

I can't tell you how proud I am of Chris. Two years ago he knew zero about woodworking...and now he has his very own, homemade "box joint jig" for crying out loud...ok, I don't know if that's good or bad, I just remember it being a term he mentioned. But in all seriousness, what he has accomplished in a mere 2 years is phenomenal. Seriously. High five.

With that said, do me a solid and swing by our website to see the rest of our products. And if you're feeling a bit furniture happy, place an order, or two.
