Custom Percussion Cart

This was a custom project for a home music studio: a pushcart for percussion instruments in soft maple and baltic birch plywood. As is the case with most of my larger projects, I modeled each component in this drawing (as opposed to merely drawing the overall form.) This allows me to explore mechanical intersections, i.e. joinery, before cutting them. Very useful in a piece like this comprised entirely solid wood construction — no fasteners, just hand-cut joinery and glue. 

 

Sauna - Hudson, NY

This is one of two wood-fired saunas I designed and built — this one was for a family in Hudson, NY. Modeling the different stages of construction was extremely helpful in estimating material costs, especially for the interior and exterior siding which were constructed of custom milled Western Red Cedar, which was not easy to find in New York state.
