Eric Mehl's Profile
My greatest inspiration is from working in my grandfather’s workshop as a child. He used to let me sit on a stool and work the drill press while we worked on craft projects for my grandmother. He slowly graduated me to the band saw when I was older. He always had an appreciation for good furniture. An older, sturdy, real wood piece of furniture. This has inspired me to start building solid pieces, made from real materials.
I really enjoy the look of rustic pieces with a hint of modern thrown in. Hard lines and little flare can make a real statement in a room. I like things with character; a dent here and there, chipped paint, rust. These make a piece truly unique. So much better than buying prefab items from a big chain store.
