Distressed Industrial Desk | How-to

This is without a doubt one of my favorite builds! 

A client of mine recently commissioned me to design and build an industrial desk for his office--and well, lately I've been obsessed with pictures of old abandoned factories so I tried to work that aesthetic into the design, and this is what I came up with.

Special thanks to my Patrons, as well as Lincoln Electric, and Waterlox for sponsoring my work and making this possible!

Designer Spotlight #6: Philippe Starck

Philippe Stark (1949-Present)

Philippe Starck is another one of my favorite designers--of course he is--this is my blog so naturally I'm going to write about my favorite designers. Anyway Philippe was born in France, and started his own industrial design company. His work later diversified to include everything from toothbrushes to motorcycles, Starck was even hired by Steve Jobs to design his 100 million euro Yacht (The Venus). Recently Philippe has been contracted to design and renovate several upscale hotels around the globe.

Philippe also hosted a pretty interesting TED talk recently where he discussed much of his design philosophy including his concept of "Democratic design"; the idea that well designed items should not only be attainable for the super elite.

In terms of trying to categorize the work of Philippe Starck, I think Modern would be the best fit. One of the things that attracts me to the work of Philippe Starck is his tendency to create conversation pieces--his work always seems to have a unique way of grabbing your attention. 

Modern Live Edge Waterfall Coffee Table Collaboration Part 2 | How-To

Wow, this was an absolute blast! This was a collaborative build with my fellow hosts of "The Crafted Podcast"--Johnny Brooke of Crafted Workshop, and James Wright of Wood by Wright. 

We each tackled different aspects of the build. I was responsible for forging the two drawer pulls, and fabricating the metal leg, Johnny tackled the slab and the waterfall leg, and James worked his 19th century wizardry on the drawer and dovetail slides.

In case you missed the collaboration playlist links in the video , here is the direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njCVFKPt4lA&list=PLRopeQgakyAkLpHHnOnjW-Yj9EeBUgIhw

Torched alder console table | How-To

So this was another commission for the same folks who I built the "Bar Height Slab Table" for. This was a lot of fun! I experimented a bit with some new finishing techniques, and I'm very happy with the results. But I'm also a little bummed that I didn't get a better picture of the finished project, I'm not much of a photographer, but the lighting made it impossible for me to get a good shot.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the video, I'd love to hear from you!

Bar Height Slab Table | How-To

This is hands down one of my favorite builds to date! I enjoyed the entire process, from the renderings(pics on my instagram) to the final assembly. 
The client wanted a unique bar height table, and I stumbled across a beautiful cherrywood slab with the proper dimensions. I have always had an affinity for tusk tenon furniture, but I wanted to work metal into the design--the solution I came up with was steel legs with a wooden stretcher and zebrawood tusks.

Modular Crosscut Sled with box joint jig | How-To

I've had a few people ask me about my crosscut sled--and after realigning my table saw top for the shop fox fence, my old one was about 2 degrees off, so I built another one. I've included a removable finger joint jig, but you could also add miter jigs, etc.

Thanks for watching, I would love to hear from you.

Industrial Table | How-To

This is my first commissioned piece for a decor/furniture store located in Dunedin Florida. The client wanted a wood & steel industrial influenced table, they had also expressed a preference for lighter wood.

Although I had initially intended on using some contrasted hickory, I ended up with a few beautiful pieces of poplar--a severely underrated hardwood in my opinion.

Thanks for watching, and let me know if you have any questions!
