WOOD PORTRAIT [2] All my favorites...Wenge, Walnut, Teak, Oak, Maple, Cocobolo. 📷 @exposureloft and his cool tattoos.
The BALVENIE BAR CART. @foundrywood and I were lucky enough to be a part of the first-ever #CraftedCollection – a curated series of handcrafted items incorporating wood from The Balvenie Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. Big thanks to @balvenieus @cfda and @toddsnyderny for the opportunity to make something truly unique!
WOOD PORTRAIT [1] Spalted Maple. These beautiful lines are the result of fungus spreading through a tree, and ultimately causes weakness in the wood. What some may see as destruction, I (along with many other woodworkers) see it as a work of art created completely organically. Nature’s design! 📷 @exposureloft
I thought it would be neat to make an iPhone Case that could charge your #Airpods . The mechanical aspect that holds the pods in would be similar to the push-push micro SD card connectors. Not sure if it’s completely functional yet, but I like where this is going. Thanks for the fun collaboration @RyanFlomerfeltMather. #conceptdesign #industrialdesign  #productdesign
