As you probably know, DBI has been growing and growing since its humble start 3 years ago. Literally! We have taken over more and more room in our current building, but at this point there's none left! So like a hermit crab that's outgrown its shell, it's time for us to move into a bigger place!
That's right, we're moving. These past years in Sharon have been wonderful (and we will still be working in the area!) but we're moving to a bigger place in Avon. It's just 15 minutes from our current shop and 5 minutes down the road from Ikea, Jordan's, or Costco at the intersection of Harrison Blvd and West Main St. The building needs some work, but who else would be better for the job?
The basement is a little dark and spooky right now, but after we get everything cleaned up and cleared out with a fresh coat of paint it'll be perfect.
This section will be our shop. We're going to knock down a wall or two and build some offices. We'll even have a showroom in the new place! We'll show off plenty of our 3D Puzzle creatures!
We have our work cut out for us, but don't worry. We'll keep taking on projects all throughout the move. If you have chairs to fix or cabinets to install, we're still your guys. Give us a call or email us for a quote or to schedule a meeting
What's this giant table doing at the shop?
Looks like we have a ton of work to do. Well, a half ton- this guy weighs in at a thousand pounds! We got the help of a moving company to get it to the shop, but we had to come up with a rope system and use all four guys at the shop to get the table from standing up to sitting normally.
There was a big crack running down the middle of this rustic, solid cypress table. Whoever built it did not account for the crazy humidity changes that we go through up here! The wood shrank and ended up making itself crack. It was our job to fix it.
The first thing we did was disassemble the base of the table. Using glue and clamps, we got the crack sealed tight. Then to make sure it didn't come apart, we used the CNC to make some butterfly patches to install along the fault line.
After that, it was just some touch up work where the metal pieces were originally set. Efraim got a chance to use some of his special planes, so of course he was happy.
And there you have it! The table has a really cool balancing act going on for the base. Even though the base isn't under the middle of the table, the turnbuckles that reach out to the end keep the whole thing perfectly balanced.
If you have a gigantic, heavy, fancy table that needs repairs, let us know! We'll have it looking better than new in no time.
