Slab Benches for Judith Leemann

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

This was a very exciting project.  I got to work for Judith Leemann who I had while I was a freshman in college, making two custom benches for her show arvensis in the Distillery Gallery in South Boston.  She had acquired two big pine slabs, bookmatched, from a friends’ relative, and wanted their shapes to […]

Oak & Maple Slab Bench

A friend from college asked me a while back if I could build him and his fiance a bench for their porch.  “Maybe 4-5 people” he said, and small enough to fit in a little back porch area, and be moved inside during the winters.  Not too steep of a challenge, and he was so […]

Fir Desk for a Tiny Space

Monday, July 17th, 2017

I moved into a tiny room for a bit and needed to make great use of space, so I built this short, shallow, long desk with tons of drawers.  I worked out some of my difficulty/baggage in getting drawers to work doing this.  It was good.  Even got some file bars in the lower ones.  […]

Bench

Well this one’s been a long time coming.  Not the greatest, but it’s done.  That was all I really wanted out of it anyway.  From the timberframe barn a few summers ago I snagged some scrap lumber, milled it down pretty primitively with chainsaw and circular saw into slabs and strips, and came out with […]

Bones & Body Chair

Monday, May 6th, 2013

, , ,

Last semester I tackled wood from as many points of view as possible.  I made a wave-shaped bed form using an ArborTech grinder, I made some thin bent kinetic straps, a cradle that rocked diagonally, a creature head from a basswood log, and finally, this chair.  I’d been tempting myself toward furniture for some time, […]
