mdf, solid surface counter and starphire glass
collaboration with Studio K Glass
My first custom installation of 2013. Thanks to Kathleen Ash of Studio K for all the tips and advice on using the proper glass adhesive. One aspect of the design I didn't fully appreciate until I photographed it was how the layout with the tile creates a bit of a glass box optical illusion which is evident in some of the shots. The vertical leg is set into the tile work.

collaboration with 220 Designs
Thanks to the wonderful architects at Alterstudio who designed this kitchen, I was fortunate to be recommended for this project as cabinetmaker. Normally I do not provide counter tops and finish hardware, but because of the tightly nested design, I engineered and supervised the fabrication and installation of all stone & stainless steel counter tops/backsplash and stainless finish hardware.

The client liked "Shuffle." Shuffle wouldn't work in this application due to the function needed by the client and tight space limitations imposed by two doors and a staircase. It needed to hold it's own in a house with a lot of one-of-a-kind artisanal pieces. What better way to stand up for yourself than a cabinet made from a big chunck of walnut?

This is a custom design and fabrication for great customer of mine here in Austin. All the face veneers on the cabinetry were hand cut from one piece of walnut in my studio. There is a solid walnut blotter inset into the steel at the desk opening.

I took off all of July and August of this year to build out my wifes new store in East Austin, Take Heart. It was a lot of hard work but really fullfilling on so many levels. All the door and cabinet veneers were hand cut and vac pressed from a pile of old vintage pine skins I had purchased earlier in the year.
