The Outer Sunset of San Francisco is rapidly becoming known for its style, inspired and created by the surfers that frequent Ocean Beach. Woodshop, a partnership of four sign-painting, furniture-designing, surfboard-building friends, seems like a perfect fit for the neighborhood...

Leilani Marie Labong of A Ruffled Feather recently did an excellent feature on the workshop/shop for the San Francisco Chronicle. I loved her description of "the artisans' alchemy (an irresistible allure owed not just to their close-knit friendships or their love of surfing but also to their reverence for one another's art and expertise)", as well as the artisans' discussion of their cooperationg and "creative cross-pollination". It must be working because the photos of gorgeous salvaged-wood tables and cute birdhouses (especially the home of Madame Cuckoo, Psychic) made me want to hop on the N-Judah and take a ride out to the ocean, dreaming of Trouble Coffee, Outerlands' bread, and General Store loveliness the whole way there.
