IDS West

We had a great time meeting people at IDS West his year! The booth looked great and we had a load of people coming to look the new Sally Dresser! She was the perfect piece to feature, what with the show occurring so close to Halloween.

Judson's Tim Burton Tribute of the year

Jud also introduced his new “Quilted” Series! More of these will be appearing in his upcoming Japan show at 100% Design Tokyo. He will also be doing a presentation entitled “Environmental Design & Wood” featuring his work with Pine Beetle Wood.

"Stitched" Wood Table Top

Jud has been experimenting with how we can be more resourceful in making use of wood that would otherwise be thrown away. The effect of putting these small scraps together came out rather like a quilt. We’ll see where this route takes us!

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:
