HEIRLOOM RECIPE BOX

Inspired from a design someone sent me, this is my take on a similar design from an unknown artist.

Crafted from 1/4" baltic birch ply and 1/8" birch category dividers. Kona stain, laser-engraved lettering and artwork. The lid has a built in recipe card stand so you can read as you cook. A brass swivel catch clasp keeps your secret recipes secure!

WOODEN MAPS

Cities and Towns, States and Countries, Neighborhoods and Special Places

Laser cut wooden maps are a neat way to represent a special location. I like to add little wooden house icons to the home location of people I give these to. I am happy to make a map of any location or address, just send me a note with the location and size of the map you'd like. Sizes from postcard up to 21x29" are available.

"THE HOOLIGAN" PASSIVE BROADCASTER

My take on a passive amplifier for your phone. A simple design redirects and funnels sound toward your listening position.

The Hooligan is made from 3mm tempered hardboard and features an engraved Japanese "kumiko" style hardwood front panel. There are three rubber feet that permit perfect balance without rattling or buzzing as well as keeping The Hooligan in place during music play. The design allows for the device to be plugged in and a slit in the back panel allows the phone charging cord to exit the panel for continuous charging and playback. The Hooligan is completely passive, no batteries or external power is required. Just set your phone in the slot and enjoy the enhanced acoustic redirection provided by the design.

BESPOKE TEA COLLECTOR BOX

Vintage style combined with modern crafting methods.

This tea collectors box is made from 3mm tempered hardboard and features custom dividers to organize your tea collection. Four dividers have some silly tags already labeled, but I provide four blank dividers so you can write your own categories on them. The text on the box top can be personalized to your liking too. The text is a raised inlay design made from real hardwood letters.

VESSEL OF UNNECESSARY SOPHISTICATION

2019

Inspired by a reddit post from user CBProjects, this is my version of their project. I took their original idea and added some embellishments and design changes to make this interesting bowl. 
The main structure of the bowl is cut from 3mm baltic birch ply and it is fastened to the interlocking legs by 114 micro screws. The legs feature a stepped support structer under the spiral bowl sides to allow for the screws to fasten each spiral to the legs as they descend down to the bottom. Decorative veneer inlays are made from maple, walnut and blackpaper veneers. 12" diameter, 3" tall.
