CNC wall panel
This graceful 3D wave pattern is composed of stacked plywood layers cut to shape using a CNC router.
This segmented vase consists of 360 individual wooden pieces (walnut, maple and purpleheart).
This lamp is constructed of solid walnut joined with hand cut dovetails. The beauty of the wood is highlighted by the warm glow of the Edison bulbs.
3D Printed Skull
This ram skull was 3D printed in eight pieces using FDM printers and a publicly available 3D model. The assembled pieces were then painted and weathered to create a more lifelike prop.
This hamburger was inspired by Bob's Burgers and was made for a group Halloween costume. Constructed primarily of high density foam and cloth this burger is light weight and easy on the shoulders. In addition to looking great and (probably) tasting terrible, this costume can be worn on any occasion! At the office or on the streets this delightful stack of discs is sure to be a hit!
These wooden penguins are made from solid walnut and maple, turned to shape on a lathe.
