Outdoor shop for the glue up on our walnut headboard. - - - #sustainablebuilding #carpentry
Throw back to a fun shoot wrap in the city #NYC
Another piece I built about 6yrs ago. Walnut with brass pulls and legs. I originally build it to float on the wall with no legs. - - - #midcentury #furniture #woodworking #brass #cabinetry #interiordesign
This was a piece I made many years ago to fit an awkward corner in our house. The back side was finished so it could be seen from any side. White lacquer finish.
As many of you know. I’ve decided to follow in my family’s footsteps in carpentry. Spending summers and holidays with them back in New Hampshire growing up. My grandfather and uncles letting me come to their job sites and see what they’re up to. It always struck my interest but I was the “artist” of the family. Concentrating on Graphic Design and Photography. Fast forward to current day and my uncles starting to retire. I’m getting the opportunity to acquire their tools. Carrying on the family trade. - - - #grateful #carpentry #midcentury #midcenturyhomes #stanley #handtools #family #bluecollarlife
As I’m sanding down an ibeam at the Steve McQueen home, designed by Hugh Kaptur, a co worker is telling me about Bethlehem Steel Co. and how they made all the steel that this house is held up by... literally as I sand down this gem. - - - #midcentury #palmsprings #stevemcqueen #hughkaptur
I’m posting on location. Not as a photographer, but in pursuant of a new career path. I’m following my passion for home building. I’ve started with a mid-century era contractor who restores many of the Neutra’s, Lautner’s and other architects in the LA and Palm Springs area. At the highest level. My creativity is best pointed in this new direction. - My passion for photography will continue in a more artistic path. Going back to my roots and getting hyped about it again. - I encourage anyone who lacks anything else to say in their profession, to find that spark in something else they’ve been wanting to do.
All cleaned up!
Not sure what to call this one...
