This custom pine beetle cabinet unit was built for a private client.
Using reclaimed pine beetle wood, cherry legs and a granite top this project shows the subtle, classic side of Judsons designs.

Custom Book Coffee Table

Judson loves an opportunity to work on one of a kind pieces, it’s what he has built his company on. When the project carries a significant meaning to the client he really steps up to the plate to produce a piece that is above and beyond.

This Book Table was designed and built for a private client to honor a family member that has passed. Titled “Resistance & Liberation” it is made from solid wood that has been custom stained, soft close hinges (no pinched fingers), perfectly cut book pages, as well as custom engraving on the spine and front cover.

Judson stands with clients as they share in the excitement of the reveal.

Walnut Media Cabinet

This media cabinet is custom designed for a private client. He wanted a piece to hold specific electronics (record player, amp, vinyl records etc) and Judson found the perfect solution to ease of access with magnetic drop down drawers that pull forward. The textured wave pattern was done by CNC machine programmed by Gerald Lauze.

The Bubble Cabinet & Apple Cabinet

Check out a new idea Judson created using 14-ply walnut plywood!

The Bubble Cabinet

After enlisting the help of a local CNC programmer, we created a random bubble pattern in a sheet of plywood that defies explanation. As the CNC router head carved out the grooves for each bubble, each subsequent layer of plywood is revealed. The result is a beautiful product that could not have been created with hand tools.

Check out the layers revealed by the CNC router!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve also been busy created this cabinet that looks like a bitten apple, aptly titled:

The Apple Cabinet

Have you ever seen a cabinet like this?

It was constructed with maple veneered plywood for the actual cabinet portion. For the bitten area, we used a 2-part expanded foam, carved, and the fiber-glassed with a matte white paint on top.

Check out the detail in the bite marks!It's still a functional cabinet!

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.

Little Black Dresser at YVR!

 

On display at the Vancouver Airport

We recently installed one of our Little Black Dressers at the Vancouver International Airport in one of their display cases that feature art and designs from various West Coast artists. Be sure to keep an eye out for this fashionable piece in the International Departures Terminal. The dress is mounted on a smaller version of our Split Pine Beetle walls. The rear side of the wall also shows our iLog docking station, some pine beetle rocks, and a miniature model of our beloved Cindy cabinet.

July 1! Salt Spring Woodwork’s Night Gallery

Save July 1st for the Summer Lights opening party and premiere of Salt Spring Woodwork’s Night Gallery!

Three extraordinary artists – Brent Comber, Judson Beaumont, and Peter Pierobon – will light up every Friday and Saturday night this summer from nine to midnight, with their innovative new light-filled installations and environments.

Judson Beaumont’s XL ‘Squiddies’ will be making their first appearance after their smaller cousins made a splash at the ICFF in New York just a few weeks ago. A Squiddy bench will be present, circling a tree, as 7 and 8 foot tall squiddies tower on their tentacles eerily lit from below. Best viewed at night!

The Squiddy Bench. Fancy a seat?

Summer Lights features illuminated works of  art in the environment, artifice in nature, pieces of public art made to be visible in the dark. Viewable from distances and infinite perspectives, they  illuminate the trails and the towering trees of the Woodworks landscape and transform it into a new place, startling, playful and beautiful.  Each piece changes and evolves through the day in different lights and times and weathers.

Salt Spring Woodworks is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm and  FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT  from  NINE TO MIDNIGHT through July and August.

Beaumont Nominated for “Wood Innovation Award” with Wood WORKS

Jud used the Mountain Pine Beetle wood for the river rocks in the desk, the desk base and the living wall cover. Let us know what you think!

ING Recption Desk

With its organic shape and flowing texture, this desk is both unique and beautiful.

Under the glass, the polished wooden river rocks are even more evocative of the real stones that inspired them.

ING Living Wall Cover

Constructed from split Pine Beetle Wood, this living wall makes a lively and positive contribution to the office space.
