Much of my free time is spent making things. Below is a selection from the many things I have made for friends or for myself to enjoy.
Chest of Lost Drawers is an assortment of mismatched drawers collected over approximately a year. The boxes are made from re-claimed red cedar fencing offset from each-other with sliding dovetails
The different sizes of drawers create small shelf spaces for lighting and other objects.
I made this bike rack for my house out of old discarded bike frames.
A second bike rack from bikes commissioned by the Quaker Meeting in Providence.
I took three weeks away from my workshop in early summer 2020, and decided to take this time to teach myself to stitch shirts. I ended up making 9 shirts in total with two different styles of collars.
With a global pandemic in progress, I also made matching face masks for each shirt with the fabric scraps.
The fabric for these shirts and masks is made from printed Indian Lungis, a traditional garment similar to a skirt or sarong worn by men in the south of India. The printed style of Lungi is specifically worn in the Indian state of Kerala. I fell in love with these prints while living in India in 2015 and 2016. Along with Dovetail jeans, Ape and Bird hats, and Blundstone boots, these shirts complete my unofficial daily uniform.
Lucky for my brother, Alex, we are the same size, so I didn't have to change the pattern at all in order to make a shirt that fits him. Someone should probably buy this boy an iron though.
This set of vases is designed to tip over when let alone. Much like humans, they need the company of others to function.
I taught a skateboard building class at the MIT Hobby Shop. I built this board as an example for the class.
