A wide collection of personal projects I've worked on over the years, ranging from DIY bent plywood benches to commemorative TTC bags. Across all of my projects there is always a common goal; to explore something new & create a product that I can build on in the future.
An exploration into creating a DIY bent plywood 2-seater bench. The goal was to create a simple, replicable bench that would be both simple in material & production while embuing forms that offer a minimalistic & comfortable piece of furniture. Made entirely out of birch 2x3's & veneered plywood.
Walnut Entrance Bench
A custom bench/table for the front entrance of the home, designed with storage found underneath for shoes and accessories. Made using hand-turned walnut dowels, this piece gives off both a casual & high quilty appearance for guests when they enter the home & will first see it.
A DIY bent plywood chair exploring the use of simple, yet effective, means of bending 1/8" plywood to create forms that are easy to build & made from cheap yet effective materials. Here I used birch 2x3's & veneered plywood
to create a light, yet sturdy, lounge chair.
TTC Commemorative Bag
A commemorative item celebrating the 100th year of service provided by the TTC. With adjustable drawstring straps, this canvas bag offers comfort & security. On the back, you'll find a real TTC Token converted into a durable pin which you can use to be unique by placing it on your stop along the subway line, for stylish decoration, or as a backup if you really need to catch that subway home.
The Newly Wed Times
A custom-created newspaper for a family wedding celebrating the marriage of Erica & Alex. First collecting fun, interesting stories of the two from family, friends & relatives, I then edited & formatted the content into a 8-page Newly Weds Times (which was printed on newsprint via the Glasgow based News Paper Club Print House). A fun & personal project.
Crystal Clear Eye Dropper
This prototype is a solution to the difficult eye droppers which plaque the market today. Using simple momentum, this simple device uses a rotating lid to rest on the bridge of the user's nose, lining up the drop opening directly over the eye; simply rock your head backwards & the liquid will dispense perfectly in a single motion.
Table of Many Goods
Siting on this custom-made walnut/birch side table we have a birch/steel analog phone speaker (batteries not included, or needed!), a flat-packed tealight chandelier, and a CnC'd ball bearing maze running across all 6 sides of this square. Among other projects here: a custom ergonomic saw handle & double-sided fabric cloak with original pattern drafting.
