I have been working tirelessly to overhaul the brand and putting structure in place. The factory building, moving and installing our machines, creating SOPs, documenting processes and also setting up the online arm of the business.
-
So I decided to collaborate with @bisiodewale one of the most consistent people I know and guess what we met on IG to create the essentials by Jaebee brand - remember don't compete but collaborate. Combining our strengths we have created something bigger than us.
-
we launch our essentials by Jaebee product range online and open our Lagos outlet next week. -
you are invited.
-
You can also work with us by becoming an affiliate and sell our products not all the time you have to produce yourself.
-
link to website is in the BIO pls check our products and prices also know that we do OEM for colleagues and interior designers.
.
Pls celebrate this next level with me.

Screws definitely have their place in custom furniture, but where possible, glue is preferred. One of the long term problems of relying on screws alone as a fastener is the expansion and contraction of wood. As seasons and or humidity changes, so does wood.
-
Screws loosen with the expansion and contraction of wood fibers, and eventually, they can no longer be tightened.
-
Whenever we come across situations that necessitate using a screw as a fastener, there is a proper (and time consuming) way to insert it into the wood. It involves drilling holes using a couple of different sized drill bits for proper pre-drilling. This allows the screw to move with seasonal changes in the wood without loosening.

The current global movement in designs of furniture tend towards Green, sustainable, and healthy designs (for people and nature) that are multi-functional and made with multiple/alternative materials.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Green here refers to material sourcing, i.e. using Natural & Recycled Materials, NO Harsh Chemicals, and using responsible manufacturing practices with domestic materials. Responsible material sourcing is important, but it does not necessarily make something sustainable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Therefore to be sustainable, furniture should be high quality and support a lifestyle with reduced energy and resource needs. You can have a piece of furniture made of the most responsibly sourced materials out there, but if it falls apart in a short time it is not sustainable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-
It must also have increased functionality without increasing the physical footprint and also provide the same level of comfort and functionality as conventional furniture pieces and they must be designed and built to last. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The last is designing furniture to use multiple/Alternative materials not just wood but combining wood with metals plastics and glass and substituting wood for composite materials that are safe.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are so many ways to put a piece of furniture together. The specific methods used to turn a pile of wood into a piece of useable furniture is called joinery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some types of joinery are time consuming, decorative, and just as much a part of the aesthetic as it is the structure. While others are more for utility. Unfortunately, there are also methods that we see being used that are just plain wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quality joinery is central to skilled craftsmanship. This cannot be overlooked when considering a piece of custom furniture. Without it, furniture will certainly not stand the test of time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As joinery is the bedrock of quality furniture, so glue is the foundation of joinery. The way wood responds to the appropriate type and application of glue is truly amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The two wood surfaces that are being joined by the adhesive, form a chemical bond as the molecules attach to one another during the drying process. In other words, the two pieces of wood are chemically "melting" together. When done properly, the joint becomes stronger than the actual wood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In order to obtain this type of joint strength, the craftsman needs to be very meticulous in machining or "milling" the mating wood surfaces. This maximizes the contact between each glued surface and is critical for that type of strength.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Innovation to me is not reinventing the wheel but rather making a strategic breakthrough to get to the next level. -
I remember when I started my smart furniture range I just wanted to create more function and comfort for less.
-
And so the research began, and so many trials and errors and later successes one of them was getting the sofa headrest right.
-
I remember the day we finally got it right, we were so happy and I could feel the sense of accomplishment in everyone of us. And then I started to think what's next to achieve.....
-
Just like IKEA started, I won't claim to be the master of style yet, but I am a badass copycat of what the Masters have created.
-
More grounds breaking acheivement in furniture production. Cheers.......

While reading one of the many books I have on the IKEA brand - ( I'm shamelessly following the brand by the way) I came across something I thought I should share.
_
The IKEA brand does not merely sell design or furniture, it sells SWEDEN and indeed Scandinavia too. I realise few international brands have such an explicitly national profile too.
_
This got me thinking! How much of NIGERIA have we infused in our brands. I know we all are working towards building big brands but it starts from the little things we do. how much of Naija is infused in your product ( Names you call them, the fabrics, textures, hues etc).
_
Jaebee's Ethnic Naija is a collection of handcrafted furniture that tell Nigerian folk tales. So how about you, does your product have reference to Nigeria? .

How true is this quote for you?
-
Can you make a beautiful functional furniture that will cost 5k Naira. I can and that's what I've been working on for a few months now and made me scarce on IG.
-
So what can that be, you tell me yours too I'll reveal mine in the next post I promise. .

Very few people know my struggles, and the fact that I lost almost all I've worked for 3yrs ago. .
The years of sweat, my factory, my vehicle some of my machines and tools and almost lost my mind too (story for another day) to mention but a few. .
In 2016, I got the Oxfam work in progress Scholarship with EDC and this angel @helenemore was one of the consultants assigned to work with me on my business.
.
I remember the Day she came to Ota to visit my business premise, we had to sit in a store with dust all over because I didn't even have an office to myself except a simple shed my mum put up so my boys can work. .
I told her, aunty I don't know how to start all over, she responded by saying Joy I give you 2 weeks to transform this place into a beffiting office for yourself, you can't think well if you don't have a place to come to daily. She then took me through my pricing models, and surveyed the compound and said you have land Joy, and started pointing, put structure up here, convert this building to that.........
.
And so I did put up the office In 2 weeks and there the beginning of new journey began...... .
I put up this post just to encourage someone today to look beyond the present situation and keep at it. keep doing the do, love the process and keep your eyes focused on the vision God has given to you. .
I celebrate you Aunty Helen @helenemore for being such a blessing to me, my cheerleader, my big sister and mentor.
