Forage Modern Workshop

Ping Pong

A little help from our friends

Features, InterviewRebekah CookComment

We had a customer that really, REALLY (really, really) wanted the Modernica Case Study Platform bed. Who wouldn't? Its clean and classic design make a great fit for so many different style homes. So what's the problem? This platform bed ships in one piece, and she needed it in a king size, and it had to fit up these stairs (which it couldn't).

We looked for other bed options, but nothing was really the right design. So we called upon our good friend, Willie of Willie Willette Works to see if he could help us cut the piece in half and figure out a way to put it back together again, without comprising the design.

It literally took just a phone call and an hour in his (super fun) workshop and bam. Problem solved.

Willie, the man himself.

Bingo, bango!

Bingo, bango!

Now...to find some sweet bedding.

Mike, of course, made time for some ping pong.

What did we learn from this situation? 

1. The customer is always right (again).
2. Measure, twice (even three times) before deciding on a dream product
3. Think outside the box
4. We are reminded of how many amazing makers and artisans live in the Twin Cities and are always willing to give a helping hand. Thanks again, Willie!

Ping Pong Party - July 11

EventsJosef HarrisComment

It's been too long since our last Ping Pong Party. 

Here's the scoop: 

  • $5 to play (winner takes all), prizes for 2nd and 3rd place
  • Registration from 4:30p-5:30p day of. We suggest pre-registering by emailing info (at) foragemodernworkshop (dot) com with your name, confirmation that you will be on site, ready to play by 5:30p, and level of play between 1-3 (3 being excellent, 1 being you play for fun). This will help us create round robin tournament brackets for each level of play.
  • Tournament will go from approximately 5:45p-10p. Marty will be back to run the tournament.

And for those who don't want to play - that's OK! We will have BB Gun playing sweet tunes at 6:00pm and DJ's Chris Hontos and Collin Weiland all night long!

Plus - food and drinks available from Parka.

And just so you know how awesome it's going to be, here's the recap from our last ping pong event.
