Material for $8.99

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

I know almost no one in the city with a working fireplace (but quite a few with non-working fireplaces, weird), but I see firewood for sale at bodegas and super markets all over.

Fire wood on Lex. Ave Fire Wood at the Bodega

Instead of lugging wood back from the burbs, I figured I’d shell out the $8.99 and see if the deli wood is an good. I think it’s ash. Figure I can make something interesting out of the fire wood.

Look what they were throwing out

This beauty takes me back to my Sunday school days. A school on 22nd and Lex was tossing out a lot of great stuff, I saw a guy walk off with a globe. I had my choice between this chair and an overhead projector. I stand by my decision.

Laser Party

The lovely ladies of Design Glut have invited me to their Laser Party on Thursday. It’s being held at NY Designs’ prototype lab

They’ve asked a group of designers to come hang out and have a night of free laser cutting and etching. It’s pretty much a party from the future.

I’ve re-worked the Monster Mirror design, so it can be cut with the laser. I’m excited to see how it turns out.

Robot sculptures by Gordon Bennette. They are in a store window on 5th Ave at 16th St. Totally worth checking out if you’re in the neighborhood.

A Tree Turns in Brooklyn

I recently joined the Gowanus Studio Space. Finally a place I can make a big ol’ mess.

Get the flash player here:

There are so many great people/designers/artists/tools at this place. And they have a lathe. Although, it kind of feels like I’m cheating on my wife with my new girlfriend.

The Drop Part 2

Kiel set me up with a sweet location. The mobile was hanging over a fantastic table and bench from Bear and Lion. They make some fantastic furniture.

It was an incredible show. There was a piece by Yoko Ono, a Chuck Close spotting, live graffiti under the High Line, free booze. It was fantastic. Open till Oct. 17th, check it out if you can.


Go see Apartment Therapy’s post on it, much better pictures than I took.

I was at the Whitney Museum the other day and came across the Art-o-mat in the gift shop. A very cool (and cheap) way of getting your hands on some art.

I got a cool little wooden sculpture wrapped up like a pack of cigarettes. I love this idea.

My pot rack was mentioned in this morning’s amNewYork. It’s an article about super-sizing small New York kitchens. This is very cool, thanks Lucy.
