the amazing Blair Sligar (who also happens to be our friend)

Blair Sligar is our amazing & dear friend here in Orlando who I have talked about before but I am so excited to share the the profile Grain & Gram just did on him. Check out the full interview here along with beautiful photos shot by JonPaul Douglass.

Blair built out our whole studio and did all the custom woodwork in our shop. He also heads up production of our recipe card boxes. He's amazingly creative with his work (he does everything from custom furniture to built-ins to products) and is committed to using locally salvaged woods & old finishes.

Soo, check out the interview & short video below.. If you're interested in contacting Blair or working with him, check out his site or email him at hogeathog[at]gmail.com.
