My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.
Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.
10.2 Multi Ply Coffee Table
Constructed from a single 24mm thick four by eight plywood sheet. The diagram illustrates how the 24mm four by eight sheet is divided and cut into a total of 72 pieces, (4 leg pieces / 48 short slats / 20 long slats). The cutting width of all slats including the leg pieces is 48mm minus the width of the saw blade cuts. The slats cut from the material salvaged from inside the four U shaped leg sections is cut in half. All slats are turned on edge and glued together on the veneered face, the short slats are aligned to the outer edge of the table creating a hole in the centre that equals the same volume as the four legs. The finished table is 10.2 lbs lighter than the full sheet of material.
