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!

North Vancouver Public Library: Reading Tree

A project that we have been working on for quite some time has just seen the last of us, and the North Vancouver Public Library now has a new reading tree! We completed a series of wall murals for this Library about a year ago and are glad to have been able to add this final element, which can be opened up and used for storage as well as decoration. Jud and Kyle install the final bushy bits below.

This tree has been quite the undertaking as far as construction goes. We did the fiber-glassing ourselves but it’s been in and out of our shop multiple times for painting and finishing… both for the bark and the “housey” elements. Just for fun, here are a few shots of this thing in the works.

Everything we do goes through a different process. Check back often to see what else we’ve done!
