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!








...bit right through the handle too!


2010 Culture Crawl this Weekend!

There is no better time than the Crawl to see Jud’s studio than during the East Side Culture Crawl. The crawl, which has been a major fall event for 14 years, just continues to grow! As more studios join, the party here at Straightline just keeps getting bigger as well.

Come by on Friday night for drinks and snacks, or during the weekend and see current, in progress work on display. You take a look inside a curvy cabinet and see what is really going on in there! Past favorites will jostle for attention with bright new ideas and crazy prototypes. There will be things to draw on, open up, bounce, shake and unexpectedly discover. We’ll currently have pieces from our work with Crayola Crayon Canada, as well as several other clients  Don’t miss it!

We’ll have live music and other surprises by Kurt Beaumont, Taylor Beaumont, and Jud’s staff, who will also have artwork in the studio.

We’re unit #260 in 1000 Parker Street – 2nd floor.
