Article about Phil Daniels in Canadian Woodworking Magazine, April-May 2012 Issue

Text of article: Under Photo: Loud Tables - Guitars are one of Daniels' favourite forms to play with. These tables are made with figured woods, and finished with colourful dyes to make them stand out that much more. (Photo  by Phil Daniels) Body: Custom work has been keeping Daniels busy since 1978, making everything from armoires and kitchens to his signature bent guitar tables. It always takes him longer than anticipated to finish a project. "I'm fussy and want to produce high-quality work," he said, about his refusal to cut corners. Once he's confident in a general design, Daniels moves to Google Sketch Up to work out most of the details in 3-D. When the drawing is complete, he can print computer generated cut lists and material lists before getting to work. Once in the shop, he gravitates towards figure; "l love highly figure woods, especially my bent guitar tables. They get the best wood." Daniels doesn't mind standing out a bit, explaining "I use different colours to stimulate people's imagination, and to show what coloured furniture can do to a room."
