Strand

August 6, 2012

I built this bench as my final project for the furniture design class I took last semester. The seat is made out of left over beams of Parallam, which is essentially wood chips all compressed and glued together. The legs are half-inch steel tubing which I cut, bent and welded together. It is intended to be an entrance bench, for someone to sit on while they tie their shoes. The name “strand” came from my friend, D. Brad Mullen. The bench is 45 inches wide, 11 inches deep and 17 inches tall.

“I love lamp.”

June 3, 2012

A major design consideration was to make sure the entire thing could be disassembled for easy transport, and so that it could be built with the limited selection of tools I have at home. Baltic Birch finished with Danish oil. Footprint is 12 x 12 inches, and it stands 26.5 inches tall.

Canopy Pet Bed

May 8, 2011

This design project was to create a pet bed/resting area in the style of a modern architect or architect group. Working with Eric Chiang, this is the design we came up with. It is based on the “Meera House” by Guz Architects. Constructed with MDF, the surfaces are finished with charcoal grey arborite. The scratching surface is a sisal mat cut to size, and the pillow was custom made. Took about 117 hours between the two of us to design and construct. 30 x 23 x 16 inches.

The Girl and the Robot

December 10, 2010

In my design class, our final project was to draw/paint something in photoshop. Here is what I came up with. The girl is based off a character from the video game “Unreal Tournament 3”, but everything else is my design. Took about 40-50 hours. We had to present our process, so I might post the pictures from that if there is any interest.
