Steel-Clad Side Table

Today I dropped off a cubodron steel-clad side table at Ashley & Vance Engineering, Inc. (to go with one of my upholstered benches that they already had). They recently installed their logo on the wood wall we did last year.Cubodron table / Half Moon Benchsee more from our cubodron accent table collection

Local Planemaker at Work

I got to spend some time yesterday with a local planemaker friend of mine, Juan Vergara. He did a sharpening demo for a couple of us locals. Juan makes some beautiful infill planes. Check out his work at www.juanvergara.net.

Wine Country Installation

I did a little cabinet installation yesterday in Paso Robles, CA. This mini wet bar and table-style bathroom vanity were made for a local grape grower’s man cave. The client plans to have undermount sinks and black granite counter tops installed.

Made from reclaimed local douglas fir and finished with my “coastal drift” (grey) finish. Handmade steel handles on the cabinet doors.

Introducing the “Cubodron” Collection

After a lot of blood, sweat, and beers, I’m happy to introduce a new collection of accent tables: the “Cubodron” collection. “Cubodron” is short for cuboctahedron, the name coined by Archimedes for this geodesic shape (6 squares intersecting with 8 triangles). These unique tables are hand-clad with hammered metal on all sides, allowing them to be turned and positioned in any number of different ways. The metal has a beautiful rustic patina and a lightly hammered texture. Available in copper or steel.
