Dwell recently posted a spread for The Butchers Daughter, showing off my woodwork.
∆ ceiling, and countertop built by yours truly, with the help of fantastic friends of course!
Aka My favorite room in the house. We had a scrappy dirt slope of a backyard when we moved into our home in Eagle Rock 3 years ago. So I decided quickly to upgrade us to deck level. Complete with sunset views, and a fully functioning bathtub.
All built with reclaimed lumber.

It took 3 structural roof beams to fabricate this bar in Venice. In order to have grain side out I cut about 20 2ft pslabs with a chainsaw, and we glued them together. It took about 4 days of planing and sanding to get it to its final look.

For July 24th weekend Mystic hot springs throws a music festival. I built a number of projects for the event and this was I think my favorite. Pallets are where I originally started building so it was fun to bring it back... But with a little extra flair.

A dear friend Randy Sosin commissioned to create a wooden structure in his back yard in Los Angeles. it was placed on top of an already existing slab of concrete and would house a hot tip and good times. It was completely built from deconstructed roofing slats.

The feeling of freedom is so easily obtained for me when I am in the forest. These were two installations I built at over 9000 feet on top of a mountain in southern Utah for the event Roots of the rocks.
The first was a 8ft diameter wooden teepee.
The 2nd was a natural built earth art sculpture made from sticks and branches creating space for a heart shaped mandala made from an array of natural materials including: flowers, leaves, charcol, copper, and much more.

I made a batch of 50 mustache waxes in 2013. It was a text I did to try out marketing, product design, and sales. Needless to say it was a fun learning process. The ingredients list was very simple:
Unaltered beeswax from SLC, UT
Virgin Coconut oil
Juniper berry extract
It was a successful project, the only issue I had with it was it didn't keep the stash stiff for long enough. It is tough to get a good stiff product without using any artificial ingredients like petroleum jelly.
