Some of you guys probably remember the brush holder I made a while back. My mom liked it so much, that she asked me to make one for her calligraphy teacher as a Christmas gift. So here we are again!
Cut pieces of wood
Drill Center Holes - This part was HARD
Glue and Clamp
Fine sanding and stain wood
My dad built this nightstand for me when I was about 8-years-old. Recently, I decided to awesomize this piece of furniture and give it some new life.
- I sand it. I start at 80 grit.
- I bevel out corners.
- I sand until I'm wet-sanding at 600 grit. Super smooth.
- I stain it with teak oil. Super shiny and luster finish.
- I replace the wooden knob with this cool metal one from home depot. More stylish.
- Original -
- Finished! -
** These pictures really don't do the new finish justice. You have to feel the wood to appreciate the level of finish. If you are ever at my house - you gotta check it out! **
Hey guys - I meant to post this really cool project on my blog a while back. This Booth was created for a company called Boogiezone (www.Boogiezone.com). The Booth debuted at the "Enkore" Dance competition which took place around mid-October. For this project, I created concept drawings and was in charge of designing and constructing the life-size cutouts. Special shout-outs to Elm Pizarro, Kalen Chock, Stefanie Hyunh, Dave Koepke, and Jeff Losaria for being great people on this project.
Self Adhesive Paper
Gator board - like foamcore but with cardstock backing. Super hard to cut.
The usual - 2x4s
Test assembly in my garage
ASA <3 - can't stop won't stop.

This is a rough paint-over on one of my previous sketches. I want to get into digital painting create some really polished pieces for my portfolio. This pieces doesn't look finished, but it's a good step for me to start getting used to the tablet and digital painting again.
I know the perspective on the rough is messed up and stuff. But I didn't quite notice that until I almost finished. I'll catch it earlier next time.
