A blog about wood furniture, gadgets and bicycles.

Wood

Wood Desk and Benches

I thought these were cool. I don’t remember where any of them came from… found them lurking on my hard drive and I figured I might as well put them on here.


F&Y Wood Handlebars

Found these while browsing around. I’m kind of surprised that I’ve never seen any companies do this before. They are designed by F&Y which is based in Canada. They look really nice but I don’t know how much I would like riding with out any kind of shock absorbing material on the bars….


Stickbulb

These are really awesome. The Stickbulb designed by Rux, is made from recycled scrap wood, some of which was salvaged from the coney island boardwalk, and led light strips creating a modern, sleek light source. Here is the product description from their site:

New York City based design firm RUX re-imagines the light bulb with its latest collection, the versatile, playful, and strikingly simple StickBulb. The design and manufacturing for the LED powered StickBulb is done in RUX’s New York City workshop using a wide variety of materials, from maple to sun-bleached Ipe salvaged from the Coney Island boardwalk.


Black Walnut Bowl

So this is my first attempt at making a bowl on a wood lathe. I glued 5 scrap planks of black walnut together, which I had leftover from another project, to create the blank that was used to make the bowl. This photo shows the bowl with one coat of a tung oil.


Aluminum and Wood Table

Update: Thanks to a comment by thealexmac I now know that this table is actually not concrete but rather the legs are made of aluminum. Here is a link to the Hilla Shamia’s portfolio page which has more information on the table.

Came across this while browsing around. I really like the contrast between the wood and concrete aluminum and how the concrete aluminum creates veins within the wood plank. There was no info with the when I found it so if anyone knows who built it let me know in the comments.


Matthew Hilton I-Beam Side Table

This I-beam side table is awesome. I think its really interesting to make objects out of different materials than they are normally made out of. Also I really like the joinery that is used on the bottom table. Check out more of Matthew Hilton’s work here.


Empire Bowl Jam


Some awesome footage from the rebuilt Empire ramp. More super smooth film by Joe Rich and Ryan Navazio. This setup looks really fun.


Bushmills Shades by Shwood

I posted about these sunglasses a while ago but they are doing a limited edition pair made from white oak Bushmills Whiskey barrels.The barrels are close to 100 years old and they have been re-purposed to make these shades. It looks like all of them have already been sold though. Check the video for a process video of “The Bushmills” by Shwood to see how these handmade sunglasses are built. (more…)


Kaspar Hamacher Table

Nice process video of a small side table. I really like the idea of charring the inside of the legs. The table was built by Kaspar Hamacher, check out his site for more furniture.


Turned Lampshade

I want to try and make a wooden  lampshade like this one. It looks like it would be not to bad to turn one on a lathe.
