Here, I’m explaining the layout of the magnets inside the walnut rails.

Last week, Marissa Bowers (our wonderful designer, who’s been helping us out while we seek a new permanent art director*) mentioned she had been looking for a set of picture rails – and wondered aloud if it was something we could build in the shop. Ever eager for an excuse to bring everyone out to the shop, we decided that everyone in the office could use their own, and I (Brendan Gaffney) led us in a group project building some of these simple frames.

While I came on staff a woodworker, some in our office are in the process of learning the skills and setting off on the journey of being a woodworker (and others are tackling far more complex builds, like massive maple dovetails and Hayward toolboxes). One of the great perks of this job is the well-equipped shop and the tremendous bank of knowledge and skill that resides in our staff and on our bookshelves.
