Custom Mobile Sheep Shearing Stand. Jan-2019
The base comes apart in two pieces. The shearing motor attaches to a “T” that can slide up and down a spine attached to the base. The shearer can bring this to sites that don’t offer any or much structural support to hang a shearing motor, but she needs to be able to lift and transport it. I designed and built it in components to make it mobile.
Custom Base Camp Box, Sept. ’18:
Three Book Cubbies and a Fireplace Mantel/Supports- winter ’17-18
Base Camp Box, 5th ed.- winter ’17-18
New edition Base Camp Boxes, series of 5. Two are a “Bankson Lake” blue. The others will be different colors with slightly different interiors.
New Commissions on the dock- winter ’17-’18:
A New Edition Base Camp Box– small batch (5): I’ll keep the exposed plywood hatch but change up the interior space/cubbies. Misty and Jovi want their own, but I’ll have three more on the shelf. One of the five might get a special edition paint scheme with the possibility it will be a single edition box for a Squaw Valley business.
Mirror Stands for Patagonia: These industrial design stands will add two needed mirrors in the new Reno Store which is a large brick industrial space that Patagonia has revived. I did some other display work for Patagonia at this location over the summer ’17.
Modular Cubbies and a Fireplace Mantel: These clients just moved into a new house and want movable shelves for their book collection as well as a wood mantel to off-set the housing development set design of their home: key touches for two prominent rooms.
Casey’s Kitchen: custom camp box for Casey Clark, a regional ceramicist.
Poco Yellow: new edition Camp Kitchen
Temple Family Commission, summer 2016:
Two modular wall size (11ft x 10ft) shelving units and a desk. Reclaimed lumber on all the parts except the shelves themselves.
Furniture Profile: Bench
2 (I now have only one left!) ten foot long benches are built with reclaimed redwood for the seats and backs and reclaimed Douglas Fir for the arms/legs. Each bench has been treated and sealed with a soak of hot linseed oil and then 4 different treatments of tung oil after super fine sanding in between each rub (24 hour drying time between each rub). Finally, after the oil is thoroughly dry, I rub a beeswax wood finish onto the wood. These can be treated with an oil based outdoor finish upon request.
Design: The essential design strategy I wanted was to create a long expansive and comfortable stretch of seating while teasing out the beauty of the expanse of the boards. I did this by minimizing the visibility of central supports underneath the benches and not interrupting the seats and backs. However, as with all of my designs, I didn’t neglect the backside of the benches when it comes to how they look and feel. These benches could sit out from a wall and look great. They are super stable, solid and surprisingly slim agains a wall.
