RANCH OAK RE-BUILD
We brought some beloved Ranch Oak Furniture back to life for our friends Doug & Amy, owners of Exo/SAWS (Southern Arizona Work Space). The pieces were rescued from a large property east of Tucson. They had been exposed to the weather for years; bone-dry, splitting/cracking, rickety, (some in multiple pieces) & destined for the dump. We refinished & re-built the wood frames, re-designed the couch, & built a custom coffee table out of side table remnants & various ranch oak scraps. Bob Hunter (longtime leatherworker & Sean's father) crafted the lounger & couch cushions: upholstery leather with canvas back & built in zipper. He used combination electric sewing machine & hand-crank Tippmann.
