This photo is a close up of one of my tables. Two teak slabs which are joined together precisely in the middle. When joining multiple planks of wood the seams should never split apart or have raised ridges appear. If they do this is a tell tale sign of poor joinery. The edges must be a perfect 90 degrees along the entire length. Which should be laser straight to begin with. If you have to force the joint together with clamps....over time, perhaps 6 months or 6 years...eventually the wood will pull apart and shift. Filling gaps in your joint after the table is assembled is a case of too little too late. Because woods like teak and other Thai hardwoods are naturally resinous normal wood glues and techniques can be infective. The edges to be glued must be free of any contaminants, oils or resins. This is achieve with a cleaning and wipe down with special solvents. Once dry I use special two component adhesives and apply a saturation layer first. I allow the glues to fully penetrate and key into the wood pores. 10 mins after and another layer is applied. Clamps are tightened systematically to ensure even pressure throughout the table top. No tighter than a jar lid. Bulging your muscles forcing it together will only squeeze out the glue and cause a “starved joint” leaving it weak. #detailsmatter#craftmanship#diningtable#faisalmalikdesign#bespokefurniture#engineering#qualitymatters#wooddesign#woodart#technology#woodtable#furnituredesign#interiordesign#luxuryfurniture#artist

This past weekend I took a trip to Hawaii just to get a tattoo from award winning famous tattoo artist! Thank you so much @robert_pho, your work is truly amazing and I love my #thaiartwork piece brotha! Throughout the years, I’ve gotten tattoos from local tattoo shops, bamboo tattooing in Thailand, to getting tattoos in kitchens and garages! But this time, I wanted something from the best! This recent tatt was waaay more of an investment than I’ve ever spent on any tattoo! To me, this recent tattoo trip is an example of my “WHY.” The reason I work at an insane rate when I’m on and when I’m off, I make sure I spend my time doing EXACTLY what I WANT, LOVE, and ENJOY! This is one of the reasons, I am able to continuously work at the level I do, because of my life/work balance! If you want something really bad, and if it doesn’t harm you, do WHATEVER it takes to make it happen! 2 days and over 20 hours later, my finished arm masterpiece! #makeithappen#iwanttomovetohawaii
