I came across these two ‘Number Seven Chairs” or sometimes known as “3107” chairs in a online classified ad in Orem, UT. There were two of these black chairs for only $15!! I wanted them, but figured they’d be gone by the time I made it to Orem next. So after the BYU vs SDSU football game my brother and I attended a week later I called up the lady to see if they were still available. To my surprise they were, so we headed over on the way home and picked them up. They’re practically in perfect condition except for a couple minor scratches. They’re really comfortable chairs and an icon in the world of furniture design, designed by Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen in 1955. Some of his other famous pieces include the ‘Swan‘ chair and ‘Egg‘ chair.

Headlamp

One of my headlights went out last week and had to change it. I thought I’d take a photo of the old one, because I think headlamps are some cool looking light bulbs. Maybe it’s the blue glass…Either way, I’m sure some good inspiration can come from these.

Match the Typeface

Another product created via Ponoko. This one incorporates two different materials (America Cherry veneer MDF and Italian Poplar Ply). I wanted to create one of those wooden toys for kids where they match up the shape on the board. Perhaps this is just a way to guarantee your kid turns into a type nerd. Oh well,  type nerds are nice!

California County Puzzle

This is another product I designed for a Ponoko contest. This idea is simple – assemble the state of California county-by-county. Although I grew up in California, there were a lot of counties I didn’t know existed. It’s tough, but I like how it turned out! Check it out…
