The Balcony Bird table

The Balcony Birdtable. A smaller birdtable to be hung on a wall in a smaller surrounding, like a balcony, court yard etc. The bidtable can also stand free on a ledge, or cill. Not entirely objective, but I do like Gerard’s latest creation; Ideal if you don’t have the space for a free standing bird table or if you just want to something attractive on your wall (it hangs with one screw on the wall).

The Father’s Day Gift: Multipurpose Roofed Slate Sign

shed as pictThe man and his shed;… according to Wikipedia… The Shed appeals to the culture of “blokes” who do woodwork or metalwork DIY projects in their sheds…. At Slate & Nature we received a request to make something for Father’s Day related to a ‘just finished project; Daddy’s Den. As the nation is already ‘stuffed’ with ‘roped’ signs, Gerard needed to make his version on the matter; a multipurpose roofed slate sign (Engraved or Blank). For the customer it was engraved towards 6 different uses (from Closed, Working, Beer O’Clock, Guest Suite, Mummy’s…) but can be used for Timing; I am back at … 5…20 min, Activities; Rooms to… clean, tidy, hoover…. Endless possibilities. Enjoy your Father’s Day!
