Frederick Arndt Mid Century Inspired Wooden Art

I was perusing Etsy and came across the incredible woodworking art of Frederick Arndt.  I had to share!

Clearly his designs are inspired by the space-agey, mod shapes of the 1950's and 1960's, yet his work still feels new and fresh, and very much his own.

From amoebas to boomerangs, and Eames dots to starbursts, any mid mod shape your heart desires can be found in these handmade wooden creations.  

Here are just a few. Find more at his Etsy shop FredArndtArtworks

Danish Modern Teak Planters.

I came across this teak planter. Had to have it. Do I need a planter?  Nope.

It's simple, minimalist (redundant?) and cute.  It's not the planter to end the search for planters, but I like it.  We'll see.....

Mid Century Patio Tables. To Sell or Not to Sell?

That is the question.  Do I want to let this cute pair go?  I purchased them around 6 months ago-ish, and planned to restore them to use in my backyard for the summer.  (HaHa! Funny).  

HaHa, still laughing.... I'm finally accepting that with a baby, two jobs, and a home to run, restoring things gets put to the very bottom of my list. Let's be honest, it doesn't even make The List. It's like a someday list.

So, I posted them on Craigslist with a "make me an offer" price and some good ones have come in.   However, what happens when the thought of them disappearing from your someday list becomes real? You have second thoughts. It's ridiculous, yes. Let them go right? Right?

My second question is, does anyone know the maker? I've done some research, as I love to know the who-what-where of all my goods when possible, but I haven't found anything close to this design thus far.
