Eamonn Table with Maisie Stools

When I designed this kid’s table set, I had an organic modern look in mind. I wanted the clean lines of modern furniture similar to other modern sets on the market but I also wanted it to have an organic, natural feel. I sell this set quite a bit in LA.

The leaf-shaped lazy suzan in the middle provides endless hours of play simply whipping tins of crayons and markers around really quickly so they fly off and hit a sibling. What’s not to love about that?

The set is named after two really cool kids whose really cool moms are the loveliest Brits I know.

I’m a fan, these are cool. What a great simple idea that you have apparently marketed successfully.

Kiersten, I hope you have crayon shrapnel insurance.

I can see why they’re popular with moms and kids. Nice Job!

Thanks for posting.

More beautiful, well thought out work.

There are many discussions on here about becoming a professional woodworker and, after seeing your work and visiting your website(s), I think your story exemplifies what becoming a professional woodworker is all about. Identify a nitch, take advantage of every marketing venue possible (ie – be business savy – you certainly have the art of the press release down pat which most don’t realize is a very inexpensive yet incredibly valuable way to advertise yourself), have a passion for what you do and, oh yes, produce some really unique, beautiful woodwork.

My hat’s off to you and I think there are a few guys, errr, people on here that could learn much from your approach. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts and blogs.

Just scanned back over your other designs and like them all a lot, clean, simple, and fun. Hope you sell a ton of them :)

What kid wouldn’t love something they can twirl off a lazy suzan?... Another great job! Thanks for the post!
