NOTE

I don’t really use the blog section so much. Most of my posts here are projects and they’re all listed on the home page, in order of most recent.

OTHER NEWNESS

Tremendousness made a video and infographic about gaslighting (and the Trump administration). I wrote and storyboarded.

‘Artifical Limb’ bench, #1

I’m not sure at all why it occurred to me to use tree limbs as legs in furniture, but now I can’t stop. (I’ve done a few pieces that I haven’t yet posted, or may never.)

The basic idea is to create or repair a table or chair or whatever using a branch as one leg. For example, maybe the chair is an alley find with a broken leg. Then I give it an “artificial limb” that is 100% natural, and it’s fixed.

This bench is my first completed piece, although not the first I started. It’s actually from scratch—not a repair. The seat is a hearty slab of reclaimed oak. Looks lightning burnt to me on the underside. Three of the legs are from a very old busted ladder (an alley find, of course). And the branch leg was Mississippi River driftwood. All joinery and glue—no metal.

It makes for a nice, though quite primitive, meditation bench / low table in my home office.
