Beautiful Scrap Sale 2019!

Attention wood lovers!

In celebration of spring, reinvention, new growth, and in preparation for our studio move this summer (stay tuned for more info!), we are emptying the shelves for our Beautiful Scrap Sale!  This year, the event will take place over two weekends: 

Sat April 27 + Sun April 28
and

Sat May 18 + Sun May 19
from 10AM - 6PM 

The sale includes a little bit of everything Wickham: interesting hardwood leftovers and cutoffs from our furniture work, small live edge slabs, rippings, cutting board seconds and other woodscrap ephemera...  Both natural edge and square edge. Everything priced to sell.  All from the sustainably-sourced, locally processed trees that we specialize in: black walnut, black cherry, white oak, red cedar, white elm... and others.

In addition to Beautiful Scrap, for the first time we will be selling full-size premium live-edge slabs from our inventory.  Please note that pricing for the full size slabs is market rate, no deep discounts. For a preview, please see:

And finally, back by popular demand, we will be selling heirloom tomato seedlings! Organic, non-GMO, indeterminate varieties.  Will need staking.  Best flavor on the planet.

Come early for best selection!  Hope to see you!

419 feet up in the air!

We delivered a lofty piece this week to the Mario M. Cuomo bridge in Tarrytown, NY (also known as the “new Tappan Zee Bridge”)… a carefully designed perch for the Peregrine Falcons who nest at the top of the bridge every year. The site sees some pretty harsh conditions (full sun exposure, wind, rain etc) and the request from the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation was for us to use the highest quality locally sourced white oak. These birds have some spectacular quartersawn figure on their front porch!

Note that the perch will actually be installed once the weather gets a little warmer… hopefully in spring 2019… stay tuned for updates!

Hyper-local Sourcing: Tate Library Bench

We installed a project with deep roots this week. A 16’ long bench for the renovated #tatelibrary at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in Riverdale NY. We used wood that we milled from a majestic #black oak tree that stood on campus and came down in 2007! We quartersawed the wood (on the football field!), dried it and have been keeping it safe waiting for just the right project. Thanks to @architecture.research.office for finding a way to weave it into this gorgeous renovation!  The new bench sits about 30 feet from where the oak tree grew!

Very excited to complete our installation at Grimshaw's Duke West Union in Durham, NC!  We made a total of 34 pieces for the brand new student union building.

East Wing Black Walnut Y-Tables

Deconstructed in Fine Woodworking Magazine!

Very honored to have our Cedar Garden Bench featured in Fine Woodworking magazine(June 2016)!  We originally designed and built a series of these outdoor benches in Port Orford Cedar for the Chuang Yen Monastery in Carmel, NY.  The design caught the eye of one of the editors at Fine Woodworking and they commissioned us to discuss and demonstrate the construction of the piece.  What a thrill to be seen in such esteemed company…!
