Commissioned by the Headlands Center for the Arts for their 30th anniversary.www.headlands.org.
A family of three stools that can carry supplies and inspiration with you during your time at the Headlands. The stools are crafted in our shop out of of Alder, a lightweight hardwood native to the Bay Area. Each has a bucket handle to aid in carrying, and rubber-dipped feet to accept a variety of terrains. The colors and materials pull from the military history of the Headlands.
We were inspired by the utilitarian aspects of the military history, the landscape that invites hikes down to the shoreline, and the environment’s potential for creative discoveries. By packing the Carrier stool with tools, supplies, snacks or inspiration you leave prepared to explore at ease.
The stools: Sit: The basic stool is simply a portable seat. Stash: This stool features a small compartment for carrying tools and treasures. Strap: Two straps under the seat can carry small objects or a blanket.
Bucket Stool and Doublewide
The bucket stool comes in two sizes: a simple round step stool and a “doublewide” version to use as a bench or side table. Each are made by hand in studio.
The stools are made of Birch, a light colored wood that is dense and strong. The bent wood handle is designed for carrying or hanging storage, taking direct inspiration from the handle of a bucket. The legs are each turned by hand on the lathe, and the through tenons with wedge inserts in the seat are intended to last a lifetime of use.
Kit and Ace
The Tablebarrow was designed for a living space with a south facing wall which opens up completely onto a large deck. The pair of large wooden wheels on one end and a subtle handle on the other make it a breeze to move inside or out. Constructed with exposed through tenons from old douglas fir timbers excavated from the original building. Accompanied by a matching dining bench.
The Pegboard Wall System was designed as a versatile service and retail wall for Front Cafe in San Francisco. The custom pegboard panels can be mounted in numerous grid based configurations and a selection of custom wire shelves, hooks, and holders can be endlessly rearranged and reconfigured according to changing product displays or service needs.
The chair stool and table of Transmogrificates are iteration of a basic form subtly transformed between functional objects. Each piece is slightly altered from the previous in surface angle and height. Together they suggest a sense of growth or diminution depending on your point of view.

Inspired by connections and shared space, this double lounge is both functional and comfortable. Five legs instead of eight create a simple and unified object. The book matched wood grain runs lengthwise along the seat and converges at the center adding to the joined and mirrored conversation.

A collection of furniture pieces designed for a Sebastopol, CA writer's cabin takes inspiration from the nearby Gravenstein apple orchards. The versatile ladder like rail and rung frame offers a simple structure for an adjustable variety of shelf arrangements.
The rift and quarter sawn white oak set includes: wall mounted shelves with concealed under-shelf LED task lighting, floor to ceiling side shelves with lower cabinets, a generous L-shaped desk, and a matching drawer and file cart. Kitchen shelving (not shown) on the opposite end of the cabin sits functionally mounted over kitchen counters and mirrors the visual language across the space.
