Built for a florist in the field this work/display table of reclaimed cedar siding conveniently folds up for transport. Built from a nailey pile of old painted cedar siding. Also sorry Kristen for stealing ur pics.
Built to facilitate access to a loft in a small Manhattan studio and not be too intrusive, alternating treads of recycled hardwood library shelves reduce spatial footprint.
Tiny chess set puzzles apart to reveal pieces is an ripoff of 1923 Bauhaus design. I had broken my foot and needed something to do. Selling two of these on etsy allowed me to pay my rent before workers comp kicked in, so, thank you whoever. Made with scraps from the folding table also shown.
Real nice as a light shade.
I call it baseball table because resembles a diamond and because it was made specifically for a funny tiny corner booth in a bar near the park where I sometimes play softball. Recycled heart pine beams.
A woman was downsizing apartments. She wanted some sort of free standing storage built from the wood that her old loft bed was made of. Lo about behold.
A real tour de force. Large round table for a dear friend has a lot going on, and could do with a bit of tweaking.
Another friend wanted a small table with a plexi top that she could wipe down and one side of it should have storage for her rice cooker.
Recycled poplar, plexi, plywood.
I have in fact come up with an Origami bookend. This one is an 18" square of Tyvec.
Office ribbon desk
Design firm seeking unique workstations along studio wall. Massive surfaces of reclaimed bowling alley wood supported by some funky brick anchored plywood pin jointed leg assemblies the long term stability of which later kept me up some nights. Glad to say that there were no incidents or failures, the client was happy and has since moved spaces and these slabs are reportedly in storage somewhere. Certain aspects of the leg detailing later found clearer realization in the folding table, also shown.
This is a small homework desk for the same loft as the split stair, built from the same library shelving. It was built to dock into an existing bookshelf but I incorporated a cleat into the back of it in case one should every prefer to find it on a wall.
6 Leg Bench
Seven or so foot live edge slab of cedar wanted legs so people could sit and smoke and chat outside of a bar. I'd been playing around with this design for a 3 legged stool and had the thought to do a bench similarly. Sturdy. If you're out cruising Myrtle in Fort Greene you may see it.
Garden bench and tables
Bar I'd worked on previously decided to squeeze some extra space out of a fenced in corner garbage area with existing planters. This place was surprisingly comfy and cozy for the brief period before DOB ruined the fun. They ended up scrapping the tables and fence and turning the whole planter/bench assembly 180 degrees and put it against the building where it remains. I had nothing to do with it being stained that sad brown color.
Back in 2010 there was this "FlyNY" kite design competition. I went through a few iterations of this tracing paper origami kite, finally producing a pretty nice and clean one. It did in fact fly but not nearly as well as other kites I've flown. I won the competition but there wasn't any prize or anything, or very many competitors. The kite was picked up at silent auction for 50 bucks that went to FlyNY by one of the judges and my prototype met it's end shortly thereafter due to a sudden downpour. However as a result of the experience I can technically say that I've been asked to speak at the AIA Center for Architecture in NYC so there is that.
Copper tri tube pipe leg
Documentation here is very scanty. Restaurant needed four poplar live edge tables I'd resawn for them mounted against a brick wall and wanted a single 'pipe leg'. Weary of the black steel pipe and flange cliche vibe and consonant with the existing redwood bar front paneling, I went for copper. Copper pipe being so much more bendable and circles being so self packing and some recent soldering in a plumbing context experience led me to this triangular configuration. Such a cross section is suitably rigid and these little helpers remain strong and largely invisible several years later.
