Say Hello to Sammy

We also have a new mascot. His name is Sammy. We got him from one of the top breeders in the country, in fact his mama was THE top bulldog for a time. They used to call him John Snow but our family thinks Sammy is easier.

Any way, he’s cute and funny and a big fraidy cat.

Here’s some pics



Maru Modern is now Detroitable

I’m infected by the dream of perfection.

So I went and got myself a website but I wanted a name that better reflected where I am and what I do so DETROITABLE was what I came up with. SImple memorable and says what I do. So stop in and say hi tell me what you think. Or better yet let me make something for you.


MMM That’s a Tasty Table.



After seeing one of my tables on Etsy the CEO of Tasty burger contacted me and had me build some bar height versions of my industrial tables for his newest Tasty Burger location in the Harvard Square area of Boston.

For those of you who don’t know what Tasty Burger is, I refer you to the movie Pulp Fiction. Before Jules kills the guys that ripped off Marcell and treated him like a bitch, Jules samples one of the guys burgers and proclaims…”That’s a Tasty Burger”.

I’m not sure what took so long to open a restaurant with that name but I’m damn proud to have my tables in it.

So if you’re ever in Boston try out Tasty Burger, and maybe you too can proclaim…”That’s a Tasty Burger. There’s Three locations with plans for more.

It’s not what’s on the table it IS the table.

When my friend moved into a huge loft downtown he asked me to create a industrial dining table to fill the huge kitchen space. So, I made him this huge dining table. It’s ten foot long 1 3/4 thick maple butcher block top weighs in at 300lbs, 3.5 steel legs and braces make this thing capable of supporting a car. It will seat 10 people easily. Just in time for Superbowl festivities.
