Under the Sea – Children’s Waiting Room

Our latest design and installation was for the Vancouver Coastal Health clinic at the Alan Cashmore Center.

The idea for this play/waiting area was to use very fun and playful imagery in a simplistic design  that would make the area enticing for children in the waiting room, but not so much that they are too distracted when it comes time to leave.

The majority of the work was created using a CNC router to mill out the major shapes and design elements. The fish were printed in vinyl sticker, as well as the bubbles and waves. Almost all of the other elements were pressed with laminate to ensure a long lasting life of vigorous play.

The clinic provides treatment and support for children between 1 & 5 years old, as well as their families. It is a welcome addition to the already fantastic  environment of the clinic.

New Ideas!

Fall is (believe it or not) coming up fast, and that means it’s time to start preparing work for numerous shows and events, including the IDS West Show here in Vancouver as several international shows.

It looks like there will be a whole new selection of work to see this year!

Tim Burton's Sally

Jud has been experimenting with patchwood: patchwork wood and unusual sewing experiments involving solid wood, plywoods and veneers – everything, really.

So far experiments are proceeding swimmingly.  Ever a Tim Burton fan, Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas has become an inspiration for one piece in particular that Jud is working on: The Sally Dresser.

The Sally Dresser is based on the same frame as Judson’s Little Black Dresser, but with a twist!

Jud was also invited to attend the International Woodworking Fair with WoodLink USA in Atlanta this year.  IWF is a massive exposition of all things woodworking! It will run from Aug 25-28 this year, 8am-5pm.

He will also be doing a presentation at the World Expo in Shanghai. This will take place on the 27th of September at the Canadian Pavilion. Jud was invited along with Brent Comer to represent BC Wood.

Somewhere, somehow, there is a nude wooden ragdoll running around looking for this piece.

We were originally looking at both wire and leather as potential “sewing” materials, but wire seems to be the right decision. Here’s one sample board that worked out with the wire option:

The stain kind of hides the woodiness, but Jud has looked at the more natural options too. Take a look:

22nd Annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair: May 15 – 18

This May the Jacob K. Javits Convention Centre in New York City will turn into a “global summit for what’s best and what’s next in design”.

Judson Beaumont will be there along with a host of bright new ideas to introduce to the world!
Stop by booth 2220 with BC Wood to check out our latest and greatest.

While we’re keeping most of our exhibit a surprise, there will be a familiar piece or two in the show, such as the ever-popular Little Black Dresser featured below.
