I went through a "Woolie" phase, where I sculpted animals with horns, like mammoths, rhinos and bulls. The small one is oak. The larger 8" is black cherry. Both have poplar tusks.
In order to practice my upright bass away from home, I made an electric version that folds in half. It's just around as small as you can get and have a playable instrument that doesn't need a separate stand.
This oak manta-ray was inspired by a Danish Modern piece my father had. the aluminum base was hand-sanded and shaped down from a piece of hexagonal stock with love and blisters.
The Portabowl was a challenge to build a decent telescope for under $100 and create a working set of plans that people without proper tools could follow and build. I've had pictures sent back to me from the States, England and Israel of other peoples' Portabowls that they build from my plans.
My father was a great collector of belt-buckles back in the 70s. He also introduced me to wood-working. After his passing, I thought this would be a great tribute to him, combining his buckles and peg-board – his favorite wallpaper. Eat your hearts out, hipsters!
My favorite sculpture is a delicately balanced Paduak bull. The wood is so red that the dust looks like paprika and will stain your clothes. Unless you seal it with polyurethane, it will lose its color and turn brown.
This scope was made up of junk from the shop. The mixing of pieces and materials was a perfect opportunity to embrace the Steampunk design ethos.
This is my Eero2 telescope, named after Eero Aarnio's famous ball-chair. The entire telescope (minus the trusses) fits inside the ball.
