I had the pleasure of connecting with Emily earlier this month. Her project is amazing. Check it out if you haven’t already.
Brooke and I stumbled upon driftwood heaven today.
Ready for the dump? Of course not! We transformed this piece of scrap into a hostess stand for new restaurant opening up. Unfortunately I don’t have an image of the final piece but it only took some drilling, grinding, and power washing to give it a second life.
Such a different take on the typical ‘Drive Slowly’ signs. Like.
Made this lamp for my music room a few years ago. Used French horn from local antique store, old walnut plank and a shade from an old lamp that I had. Made the base to mirror the size of the shade.
Nice! We at Unconsumption love coming across examples of music-related repurposing.
I have been working with Loading Dock, an area, low-end, re-purposing company. They gave me access to a bunch of different materials that they often have trouble selling, to try and figure out neat new ways to inspire others to use them.
This was my initial exploration into hollow doors. I have found that you can use them to create great organizers. I am scheduled to give a workshop with them later in the year to teach others how to do this. More pics to come soon!
A group of MASD’rs hit Fiesta for some margaritas after getting all inspired at the American Craft Council show at the Convention Center in downtown Baltimore.
I hit the wood shop today with Ryan Hoover, my professor from my Fabrication Technologies class, to test the tools to determine what information he gains from the sounds they make and see if we could come up with ideas of how that can be adapted for deaf users.
