In the day to day comings and goings of designSTUDIO we have all sorts of reasons to make special customized projects and make the most out of our shop space and access to other local craftspeople. The following images are a hodge-podge of many of the smaller projects or parts of projects we've undertaken, some for clients, some personal, and some as protypes for potential lines to be marketed in the near future. Enjoy!

The pigBOX is designSTUDIO's take on what is affectionately known as a "cajun microwave." We can cook two 60lb pigs in this plate steel roaster and it is always a focal point of any of the parties we cater (yes, we do catering too!)

A big glass awning "window/wall" for a small rental propery really brings the outside in! What was once a small and dark kitchen is now a giant wall of glass that forms a small porch roof when open.

Who doesn't need custom waterjet-cut koi door pulls on their sushi trailer?

Speaking of trailers, we also re-built and re-worked the "kitchen" area of a late 50's airstream with updated appliances and re-purposing of the existing hardware and drawers.

We collaborated with our good friends at Deep Eddy West on a museum quality restoration of an amazing clock by Laurence Hunter, circa 1973. We were tasked with casting and texturing a new lead weight to match one lost over the last few decades. Working from the extant original weight and a black and white photo of another version of the clock from an old museum monograph, we crafted a new weight to bring the clock back into all it's trippy-hippy glory.

It's not too often one gets asked to work with cast and textured lead.

Yaki-sugi bench/coffee table made from a reclaimed cedar 8x8 and a welded and powder-coated steel base.

Our good friends at The BlackHeart needed a custom bar-rail to finish off their copper bar-top. We transformed a nice big old long-leaf pine beam into a custom profiled bar-rail, complete with radiused section. Wrapping our heads around the fabrication of the large radiused section that THEN had to be put through the shaper was an interesting bit of head scratching, but it came out beautifully!

mr. ROBATA is a compact hibachi-type grill that can double as an entry table when it's wooden top is in place. Inspired by clean lines and simple steel construction he is a welcome guest at any BBQ.

The singleSPEED picnic table is part of mr. ROBATA's family, sharing materials, details, and finishes. A 12' long picnic table is a heavy thing so what better way to make it easy to move than giving it some 24" bicycle wheels?
