When did these ‘Help is on the Way’ buttons start getting left out of elevators?
One of my biggest fears is getting stuck in an elevator, especially since I’ve always wondered how I could communicate via those elevator phones (due to my severe hearing loss). But I bet this would go a long way in calming me.

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.

Nice Repurposing!

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!

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.
