2011 update!

Fall is starting to show up now after the tropical storms, bringing to a close and amazing spring and summer for City Beautiful Carpentry. We started with our 12th annual appearance at GreenThumb's Grow Together Conference, teaching people how to build their own garden structures. We did more of the same returning to East New York Farms! and starting with Just Food's new program Farm School.
And then there's been the work. We created a beautiful fence out of recycled Coney Island Ipe' for one client and branched out into the abstract creating a trellis and planter for another. We've also been working on a teak deck project, made up some Trex planters for a building complex and made some beautiful natural benches and stools out of reclaimed beams.
