Artisans of the Valley is Backing Noodler for Bissell MVP - An Animal Shelter Fund Raiser!

The voting opens at midnight tonight for the Bissell Most Valuable Pet Contest!

Cat Window Carnivore Felidae Small to medium-sized cats


Artisans of the Valley would like to introduce you all to "Noodler" ... he's a four legged critter from the Trenton Animal Shelter and he's quite happy to meet you! Artisans is sponsoring Noodler's campaign for Bissell's MVP.

*VOTE HERE: http://bissell.promo.eprize.com/mvpcontest/gallery?id=86450*

Noodler is a very polite and intelligent adolescent cat priding himself on curiosity and hands on involvement in all aspects of our lives. He is intrical with our fostering efforts assisting with the socialization and education of the young'in's. He's a shelter alumnus, so his sense of responsibility towards this mission is quite strong, deeply rooted in his past on the city streets he's a cat with a vision for a better future.

Now Let's get down to a fundemental LumberJock question … what's Noodler's connection to woodworking? Well he has been known to spend some time in the shop. He's learned to adjust sanders and he's great at chasing wood chips from whittling projects around Dana's bedroom. (Dana being our shop girl who likes to whittle in bed …)

Curiously didn't kill this kitten; even when he did some experiments with a belt sander.

Wood Cat Felidae Small to medium-sized cats Whiskers


Cat Vertebrate Felidae Mammal Carnivore


Noodler has strong IT skills including a talent for "Snagit" which will almost always be opened with something on the screen captured anytime you leave him and a laptop alone. Almost every help menu being opened for all the active windows he finds. Seriously - this is entirely too consistent to be an anomaly, he's really doing his IT training!

When it comes too nutrition feeding times for Noodler are always an adventure - feeding time being anytime we're having a meal or there's access to food. Keeping in mind this little guy was struggling when we first took him under foster care. Fed for a few days with a syringe, Noodler was nursed through dehydration and stomach issues to where he now as an eclectic pallet favoriting crab legs, flavored pasta, and any kind of fresh meat. He brings his passion for food to his protégée teaching them that an aggressively open approach to eating is key to the survival of a cat.

Sleepy time for our little buddy is always in the bed, attempt to isolate him or push him aside to a secondary class napping platform and he quickly becomes offended. Active participation is a must, in ALL activities … awake or asleep. Now considering himself one of the elders of our pride he ensures the kittens get their exercise with daily slalom courses scheduled through the house.

Hygiene and class? Of course … Noodler is experienced in bathtub and sink bathing, hanging out in the shower, and his green goals come through when you find him actively utilizing a flushing toilet to rinse a dirty paw … and um, portraying his humorous side when he sometimes slips and falls into said flushing toilet … wow is that entertaining to watch!

Noodler seeks the finer things in life, this cat has gone from a shared cage at the shelter to a life of style, but he still understands the fundamentals. Voting for Noodler will help him fund his volunteer work with the Trenton Animal Shelter. Like all shelters, TAS needs your help and support to maintain a clean and safe environment to rehabilitate and properly care for an assortment of creatures.

Noodler wishes to add that it's been nice to meet you, and he thanks you for your vote!

Sincerely,

The Committee to elect Noodler as Bissell's MVP!

I would LOVE to have a few formally as shop cats … the shop is on my parents property and my mother refuses to allow anything with fur in the house. She says she's had enough with pets. My father and I would have a heard of them running around, and he'd probably get a dog as well.

We're gonna do some shop photo shoots one day, I did a few a while back with some of the kittens but nothing super extensive. I wanna do some product shots with the kittens, perhaps a girl or two, random backgrounds. Make it more fun than just furniture with a white sheet behind it.

An adopt a shop cat program would be great - everyone should have a mouser in the shop!

Six hour-long episodes will air in the first half of 2012, following up the original three-part miniseries which aired on the network earlier this year.

Yeah we mix it up - girls, kittens, wood, fish … you'll see when we can reveal this. We made a piece of furniture custom fit to match one of their fish tanks. It's an interesting story behind the whole concept. The tank came out amazingly interesting - there's a child involved with heart problems, the whole tank and furniture follows a theme. It was a unique commission and an experience to be involved.

We just have to hype it up now - and play the PR game without revealing any details - don't worry - there's woodworking involved at the heart of this project!

Hey guys - we're trying to double our FaceBook fan count! Help us out and join us by liking our page!

http://www.facebook.com/?sk=uf#!/pages/Artisans-of-the-Valley-LLC/187687888147

Artisans of the Valley, based in Pennington, NJ, is an exclusive custom furniture, cabinetry, carving, and restoration shop. Our craftsmen are the last of the traditional apprenticeship method of passing on the skills of furniture design, joynery, carving, and finishing. We offer our custom furniture by commission, hand signing and dating each heirloom upon completion.

For over 35 years Master Craftsman Stanley D. Saperstein has perfected his skills and in the process passed these skills to his son Eric. Eric has now taken the reins of the business, the studio, and the title of Master Craftsman.

Artisans offers heirloom quality hand rubbed shellac and tung oil finishes as well as hand painted options on any of our pieces. In addition, modern finishes are available through our affiliates including the full spectrum of lacquers, acrylics, and urethane.

Artisans of the Valley is the last of the true conservation studios in New Jersey, providing museum quality restorations, refinishing, repair, and preservation services. Artisans will evaluate your antiques and collectibles to determine the best options for your cherished possessions. Artisans is one of the few remaining restoration studios that can handle restoring a true shellac finish and provide the skills necessary to replace or restore damaged ball and claw feet, detailed carvings, and veneer.

Bent on educating our clients, Artisans offers a tactical theory on restoration entitled "The Philosophy of Restoration." This article outlines the concepts associated with restoration, and helps dispense the myth surrounding antiques and their care. Artisans restoration services are not limited to furniture; we handles military artifacts such as firearms, swords, and leather goods. We are the only conservation studio restoring antique and collectible chess sets; bragging rights include several the famous Jaques of London first 300 Staunton series sets.

Artisans provides services for commissions, restoration, carving, and design to residential & commercial clients, design firms, and architects. Please contact us to discuss the specifics of your project.
