qsketch2 Did an amazing job on a logo as part of my Brand Identity contest. They didn't win, but I was so impressed by the logo I figured there were other great things I could do with it so we came to an agreement on a purchase price.
Fantastic work. Superb responsiveness. Highly recommended.
Amazing work and fast!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I produce hand-crafted wooden furniture that combines traditional joinery with clean, modern designs. Whenever possible, I use recycled lumber and local, sustainably-harvested trees.
Most of my customers are interested in supporting boutique makers and the sharing economy.
Some of my customers are fellow craftsmen who collect my furniture. I also have a line of products specifically aimed at other woodworkers, which consists of premium hand tool workbenches, vices, and wooden hand tools.

***OTHER DESIGN NOTES***
I like to arrange the initials for my company as "MCW," which produces an anagram (the exact same sequence) when you read it in a mirror or upside down.
I also want to incorporate some or all of this logo into a physical brand to mark my furniture pieces. (Google "woodworking branding iron" for examples. This is the original use of the word "brand" -- i.e. a symbol burned into a piece of wood in order to designate its vintage.)
Attached are some examples of logos that I admire. Please note that these are used by other craftsmen (some of whom are direct competitors), so while I want something in this spirit I will not select any designs which are too simillar to these examples.
