New Logo / T-Shirts available now!!!

Over the last few months we did a little rebranding for Boles Studio.  We came up with a new logo, redid the website and printed up some t-shirts.   The new logo was designed by my longtime friend and graphic designer Jamil Azam from Painted Ship Studio.  He's a really talented guy.  Check out his work at www.paintedshipstudio.com.  He came up with a bunch of really great options and we ended up selecting the one you see at the top of our website.

We liked the logo so much we decided to print up t-shirts.  We have them in sizes S - XL.  Email me if you are interested in purchasing one!

Boles Studio and Arc Fabrication Kickoff Party

On Saturday, June 13 Boles Studio and Arc Fabrication (the company I share the studio with in the Bronx) hosted an open studio / BBQ to celebrate our move to the Bronx.  We have been working from the new location at 685 East 137th street for about 3 months now and we wanted to get all of our friends and family out to finally see the space. There are still a long list of shop and office improvements that we want to get done but the shop is really starting to come together.  

Thanks to everyone who came out and made the day so awesome!!!! 

Boles Studio hits the road to visit New York Heartwoods in Kingston.

New York Heartwoods in Kingston, NY

This Friday my buddy Ben (and frequent shop-hand) took a short road trip up to Kingston NY to visit our friend Megan and check out the showroom for New York Heartwoods.

Founded in 2011 by Megan and her co-founder Dave, NY Heartwoods specializes in recovering trees that would often end up in landfills, the woodchipper or become firewood including downed urban trees.  

The trees usually travel less than 5 miles before being milled by NYH.

Ben and I picked around for a few hours through their really wide selection of materials including some really beautiful cherry, walnut, spalted maple, spalted sweetgum slabs.  They also carry a nice array of reclaimed material such as hemlock, Canadian cedar from decommissioned water towers, and antique red oak.

 

Ben ended up taking home some of the Canadian cedar.  I grabbed some antique pine for a project I recently picked up as well as am amazing spalted sweetgum slab.  I'm not sure what I am going to do with it yet but it was too beautiful to leave behind.

Check on New York Heartwood's website and pay them a visit if you are ever in the Kingston NY area.
