Cambrian Co. Dresser

I recently had the chance to assist Ian Herdell of Bend’s Cambrian Co. in finishing and delivering this lovely new dresser.  Solid cherry–including the dovetailed drawer boxes–apart from the budding dogwood marquetry motif.  See more of Ian’s work at the Red Chair Gallery downtown.

First Commission, Revisited

Passing through L.A. on a recent trip gave me the chance to visit with some old friends, who also happen to have been my first clients.  They’d commissioned this classic Shaker side table, in walnut, back when I marked my pieces with postage stamps (and back when a stamp cost 37 cents).

Retail Build-Out in The Grove

A nice chance to work on a retail store in L.A.’s chi-chi Grove shopping center.  The job included shelving and a couple storage sideboards made from reclaimed white oak along with some CNC-branded, five-sided mitered display cubes out of Arauco plywood.

MMJ Retail Build-Out

The past few months were dedicated to building most of a large, new retail operation–as it happens, the largest medical marijuana dispensary in California, People’s OC, in Santa Ana.  A big effort, but some nice results.  Primary material is reclaimed southern yellow pine.

Jack Benches

A follow-up to the Jack tables are these Jack benches, again produced for designer Max McDonald.  Both are made from walnut slabs from San Diego’s Made Lumber Supply, both with “jack” bases.  The first retains the organic live edge and the slab’s slight curvature.  The second was given angled edges for a more modern look.

Park & Rec Dining Table

A big, new outdoor table for San Diego’s Park & Rec restaurant and bar.  Made from reclaimed oak with a steel base on locking casters.  The copper basins can hold anything from moss and sedum centerpieces to iced-down beers.

Retail display cubes

Some more display/storage cubes for a retail client.  These are five-sided mitered boxes, each with a large drawer, made from construction-grade Arauco plywood–a bit tricky, since the material wasn’t exactly made for fine work, but the thick veneers are forgiving.

Note the miter folds on the front edge of the top and sides, along with the continuous grain that runs through the drawer front, to the sides, and over the top.  A bit of extra effort, but a subtly pleasing result.

Jack Tables

Some initial samples for a line of small tables I’ve fabricated, all with the same “Jack” base, for designer Max McDonald.  Tricky!  But nice enough to get us entered into the juried, semi-prestigous Design in Wood Exhibition.

A new bathroom for a south Eugene residential addition.  The clean, modern design–in horizontal clear vertical grain fir plywood–is by David Schmitz, AIA.

Wild Cherry Console

A new entertainment console for some good friends in Eugene’s Friendly Street Neighborhood.  We all took a trip down to see Clifford at Curly Burly Milling in Cottage Grove and picked out some very striking and very unusual local wild cherry.  Designed with room for a flatscreen tv, turntable, A/V components, LPs, and DVDs.  Push-to-open hardware on the doors and drawers keeps the face looking clean and sleek.
