Published: 12 January 2015, on Blog

This summer, I was given the opportunity to help design a unique bar and reception desk for a client with Atelier Drome. The idea was to create a faceted wall that wraps both elements. We worked through the process of how the pieces would go together, and came up with a design that was both […]

My first client loved the magazine rack and requested 3 more!  These are going much faster now that I have worked through the problem areas of the original.  Here’s a shot of the progress so far – about 2 days in.  Most parts are roughed out, and a lot of the joinery has been started. […]
