Tim's latest "side" project was making two Backyard Backhoes for the grandkids. These are really cool, colorful sturdy wood outdoor toys -- made to last and be handed down for generations. Future Backyard Backhoes will be custom made to order with your choice of colors and logo designs! Check out the article for more details, including price, order fulfillment time, custom color choices, logos and shipping.
I was recently interviewed as a part of the Artisan’s Craft show at the Museum of the Rockies.
Tim’s rocking chair design is a mellow play of hard and soft edges that carry through the entire rocker.
The chair began as a simple line drawing, pulled from a dream. The organic joinery came about after Tim attended a workshop taught by Sam Maloof. The combination became Tim’s unique adaptation of a masterful design.
The seats are hand carved so anyone sitting in this rocker feels absolutely settled into the chair. The curved back stays give excellent lumbar support and the head rest is shaped to cradle your head when you lean back. The strong, laminated rockers are carefully designed to settle you back at the perfect comfortable angle.
