Open shelf/Birdcage stand - Furniture

Item details

This quarter sawn white oak stand has been dyed black. The design goals was to make a decorative piece of furniture to hold a large birdcage. The brass casters allow it to be moved to various sunspots throughout the day. The higher height of the cage allows the birds to be at eye level, so that they might be enjoyed more and making daily cage cleaning easier.

Finely crafted custom furniture. Experience the difference of handmade furniture that fits your own unique lifestyle. Every detail is looked after.

I'm a one person business. I see myself as a custom furniture maker. I work mostly with wood, yet am well connected with the local artist scene so I'm happy to collaborate if you are looking for a mixed media piece.

I am one of the few women in the furniture-making world. My name is Kim McIntyre. I love the creative problem solving that goes into woodworking. I also thrive on the quest for perfection while working in partnership with the natural beauty of the wood. I care deeply about every piece/project I make and do my best to provide quality craftsmanship from start to finish. I am honored to have gained a reputation for my integrity, honesty, and the hard work that goes into my craft.

After more than a decade of honing this craft, I have decided to take a leap of faith and dive more fully into doing the work I love. With that it in mind, I started McIntyre Furniture, LLC with the goal of making a modest living by creating beautiful, functional, sustainable furniture that people can feel proud to make a part of their home for generations.
I am also growing my business in green ways. I seek to buy sustainably harvested lumber from reputable distributers. I am committed to using earth friendly (non-toxic and low VOC) finishes.

Prior to apprenticing as a woodworker and attending furniture-making school, I worked as an Outward Bound instructor for six years. I led wilderness expeditions ranging from 4-50 days with just about every age group and population you can imagine. From alpine backpacking in Montana, to dog sledding and cross-country skiing in Minnesota, I have slept more than 1,000 nights under the stars. I feel blessed to have spent that much time outdoors and in nature as it made my soul very happy. Now as I handcraft furniture, I seek to bring my love and respect of nature to others via the natural beauty of wood.
