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.

Awesome Custom Pieces for Crayola


One of our most exciting and fun projects has been the custom furniture pieces we’ve been working on with Crayola Canada. These pieces will be inspirational fun additions to their head office in Toronto. The grandfather clock has been a huge hit with everyone who’s seen it in person!

 

Tokyo Design Week

Jud just got back from Tokyo Design Week – and it was a great show! He`s been working on some fold-out couches with Japanese couch company Shinohara. The pieces Jud designed will be going into production soon and were a great hit at the trade show. You can Check out the product site, J-Sofa, here: J-Sofa .

Jud`s sketches were translated into manufacturing sketches, and the first prototypes that were successful came along to the show!

 


Some new work from Judson`s shop also made a debut in the Japanese booth!

Meet Billy, the Boy-Cabinet:

And the wall of the booth was an event in itself! Jud brought chalk and over the course of the show an explosion of patchwork was carefully sketched out.
