Happy Lunar New Year Folks!   I spent my winter holidays in my hometown amongst family, friends, and the woodshop. My primary aim was to create an iPad stand for a client, something simple but unlike the readily available products online. I started with a few hand sketches that grew into the three concepts illustrated below. B was finalized and moved into modeling & rendering with a couple iterations, and the final product is as you see it below. Scroll to the bottom for more information on the design!                      ...

Hey there folks, If you follow us on instagram you've probably seen the recent post on my latest prototype -- a hygiene product organizer in baltic birch ply, mango, and walnut. If the post piqued your interest and you'd like to see more shots of the project, scroll below for more! A longer description of the design is at the very bottom.     As compact as it is, this project offers plenty of storage for my own products -- I planned on making it slightly larger but since everything except the top slab of Mango was from the scrap bin,...

I had the pleasure of delivering my first completed commission to the client last weekend. Without further ado, I present the Wright Chessboard, designed and fabricated for an old friend of mine. The playing surface is 18"x18" (USCF Tournament standard 1-1/4" squares) with a band of black walnut and maple creating a top of roughly 24"x24". The band of black walnut is also the joint line where the top comes off to reveal the piece storage are inside of the base. Some chamfers and fillets with the router give the board a nice feel and make it easier to pick...

I've been cooking up a few different boards recently -- chess boards! I am looking forward to brining a few of these options into reality. Creating the checkering takes a bit more effort and precision than the strip-style cutting boards I have been producing so I look forward to a fun, challenging process on this commission. These are some of the quick renders I prepared to show a few different concepts and various price points to the client.

You might be wondering what our design process really looks like -- we reference sketching, modeling, prototyping, rendering, and a lot of other design+development jargon that most people are unfamiliar with. Today we are clearing up some of that confusion by showcasing our 3D modeling process and sequential rendering method and style.  Once the initial sketches and conceptual developments are wrapped up, they are input into the Rhinoceros 6 modelling engine. The initial model shows the rough form and coloration of the design so that we can get a better picture of the scaling and proportions of the piece. As...
