I was more than a little nervous when I approached Paul Guitard of Woodmeister asking him if his firm would be interested/willing to help us and the Series out by making 45 benches for the Play Me, I’m Yours portion of the Celebrity Series. First and foremost, they’re crazy busy right now and we had 4 week to get them done, meaning disrupting their shop schedule and work flow. Second, while I know Paul socially thru various professional organizations, we’ve never actually worked together, although some day I hope to. Thirdly, what was there in this for them, really? I wasn’t entirely sure. Well, in spite of my trepidation, they said, ” Yes, they’d love to help out!”.
As it turns out, it wasn’t such a hard sell. They are as passionate about design and beauty as Sally and I are. They believe that beauty, art and good design should be and can be appreciated by everyone, improving the quality of a person’s life. Bless You and Thank You Woodmeister!
Using a sketch provided by a Series representative they rolled up their sleeves, cranked up one of their CNC machines and began fabricating!
Woodmeister’s Chris Komenda has written a wonderful and very informative blog post on the benches and the Series. It is a well worth taking the time to read.
