Photo Booth Special Project

So we’ve been contacted by this company out in the Los Angeles area. The company provides a photo booth in and around Los Angeles and Orange County for all types of events. For more information you can visit their website here Needless to say, Tom and I were a little hesitant to take on the job, but after skyping with the company we were kind of excited to take on the task. Furthermore, they had a clear picture of the type of booth along with the different intricate pieces and dimensions. Their first photo booth build will be made out of walnut. If all goes well, they are open to suggestions for a second build. We certainly can’t wait to see what we can produce based on their guidelines and our craftsmanship.

To be honest, I never knew things like these existed. The photo booths I remember are those ones you see at the fair or in the mall. The photo booth where you would hop inside, pull the curtain closed, and wait 5 minutes for your print to come out. After doing a little more digging and research it seems like the photo booth scene has come a long way. Not only do you not have to cram yourself in a box, but apparently the prints come out in like ten seconds now. The setup they have is more like a photo studio with a classic twist, how brilliant! We also came across this website that lists old school photo booths around the world. I think we might just look up our local photo booth and hop in for nostalgia sake. It’s always fun to play in those booths and snap silly photos.

I was doing some research on photo booths and came across this darling photo. We have a pit and a frenchie and would love for them to have a photo like this! Isn’t this picture just all kinds of adorable? Gosh, all the things I came across reminds me of how much I love photography. When I have a moment I would love to finally learn how to use a camera correctly, but I swear I’ve been saying that for years. I came across this website from the New Yorker. The website came up looking for the term photo booth, but it wasn’t really photo booth photos… However, it’s what actually sparked my joy for photography again. The images that people capture are just beautiful. You can literally tell a whole story in a single photo. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.

We found this neat little video and might try to jerry rig this up in our work space.

That is enough of me ranting though, we can’t wait to get started on the project. They have provided us some general sketches along with a 3d rendering of what they would like. The work they put in beforehand definitely saves us some time and headache during the process. Having a clear vision of what your client wants puts you light years ahead when starting a project.

Wooden Dog House

With two pups of our own we cannot emphasize this enough. We’ve created two beautiful little play retreats for them and while we may be a tad biased, they are gorgeous. There is just so many ways to customize and build out a dog home for your best friend.

Expecting your dog to remain outside can be a  guilt-stricken task. However, often pet dogs are clumsy and also track in way too much dust to permit them in our house most times. A wooden pet dog house is a great way to provide your canine its very own home and also rest easily outdoors. There are many elements of a wooden dog residence that make it comfy all the while protecting your family pet or pets.

A lot of our recent project have been custom wooden dog homes for our friends and family. We mocked this one up and another one for our very own fur babies. I may be biased, but I think they would agree and say they are pretty snazzy. When we get a chance we will post photos of the final project.

Wooden Doghouse
The timber to make a pet dog houses is one of the reasons these frameworks will make your animal fall in love with their new sanctuary. Redwood as well as cedar pet dog residences will certainly stay attractive and also sturdy for a long period of time. This holds true depending where you live and the climate aspects your environment subjects the wooden home to season after season.

Numerous wood canine houses currently come with top quality insulation built inside. It is developed to make your home remain awesome in the summer as well as keep in warmth throughout the wintertime, eliminating the sense of guilt you will certainly feel leaving the dog out in the cold.

Rain will also have a tough time flooding or disturbing the wood pet house. A lot of houses are made so the flooring on the inside is elevated. For our personal dogs we have placed them on a platform and provided a ramp to the opening.

You are more likely to place an eye-catching looking structure in the middle of your yard compared to a tacky one. All too often, dog proprietors will certainly put the home behind your home so it does not disrupt the appearance of the backyard. Educating the pet dog to remain in its pet dog home is harder when they are put behind your house because pet dogs are incredibly social animals as well as they will certainly not intend to continue to be in a place where they could not see or hear exactly what is going on with individuals around them.

Wooden dog residences could additionally be built with doors put off to the side rather than the front or the rear. This is comfy for your furry friend because it permits the dog to conceal from rough wind or rainfall coming inside. There are also removable plastic flaps available for some doors to permit the pet dog to enter and also out conveniently as well as protect them from the wind or rainfall.

Wood canine homes are likewise available in lots of dimensions. A canine needs to have the ability to sit, stand, and also turn around effortlessly inside the house and also wood pet homes are easier to be customized to fit the one-of-a-kind size of your canine. When we build a home we usually take the dogs weight and measure him from nose to tail in order to come up with the size.

What’s even better is the customization options wooden dog residences can have. Possibilities are endless as they also can have custom etches or be repainted to match your yard as well as your pet dog’s special personality.

Being dog and animal lovers in general we hold a place dear in our heart. We are supporters of the ASPCA. We recommend to everyone that is in search of a furry friend to adopt as their are tons of animals looking for a good home.

Wooden Toys Are Just Plain Better

wooden toys are better

Prior to the discovery of plastic and other synthetic products, wood was the favourite material for toys.  But even if there are other materials now, wooden toys are still the choice by a lot of moms and dads and educators. We certainly stuck to wooden toys with our own children. A standard reason would be is that wood has toughness and also for ecological concerns. Wood toys are likewise naturally gorgeous, smooth textures, contain a natural odor and it holds weight. We definitely love the different textures and smells that each different type of wood displays.

Some wooden toys and projects we have done:

Shape arranging cubes
Even dog houses!

Toys made out of wood show more value for your money generally because they are going to last longer than synthetic-based toys. Kids can toss them around or pound them and you can be ensured that they don’t quickly break. It is not uncommon for wood toys to be handed from the first born to the rest of the brother or sisters. Some of these toys are even passed from one generation to the other. These sort of toys are likewise simple to fix and can be recycled into another type of toy. They can likewise be saved for a long period of time when they are no more played with.

Wooden toys are environmental-friendly because they don’t require batteries or any source of energy. They are bio-degradable and can be disposed of quickly.

Even if these toys are chewed upon, they are finished with non-toxic substances. Structure blocks, puzzles and ride-on toys are ideal for older children.

The most popular is the foundation. They aid in the creative and constructive play of kids. Another popular one is the xylophone, a musical instrument, which can develop a child’s rhythm and melody. There are animal shaped wooden toys to help in identification. Wooden puzzle toys are academic games that are good for hand-eye coordination. Such toy would be ideal for a pre-schooler.

Wood toys are suggested as help for much better child advancement over most other toys. They can promote the young mind to new methods of having fun with the toy and expand the kid’s creativity. As the child gets older, he or she will discover other ways to have fun with wooden toys. An example would be the wooden blocks, at an early age; the blocks can be stacked one on top of the other without purpose or meaning. When the kid is a pre-schooler, the building blocks can be a help in colour recognition or perhaps checking out easy words.

I know most of you reading this should be old enough to remember the types of toys we grew up with. On top of the reasons I mentioned there is just this nostalgia factor that coincides with wooden toys. They just don’t make toys how they used to.
