Surfers Coasting

 Coasters for a friend.  The grain of the wood made for a nice beach effect.

This little building was inspired by the Simpson's TV show and seemed a natural subject to continue my little footprint buildings.  It fits in a 5" x 7" frame and is scaled to match HO model trains.  I have 24 kits of this building I'd like to offer for sale.  They're waiting for instruction sheets to be made. It's all laser cut card, papers, acetate, except for the water meter and smoke stack on the roof.

 Dolphin Street Surf Shop is a fantasy piece based on memories of Oak Street Surf in Laguna and the surfboards of my youth.  The mural pays homage to Bill Ogden.  The front windows light up via a switch in the base.   It is HO model railroad scale and measures 5" x 7".Made with laser cut materials.

Custom set of coasters and swizzles using vintage matchbook art.

Wood and plexiglas.



These were made as a wedding present to the young lady who created the Dancing Robot font. They're Bride and Groom initials and are about 8" tall and .75" deep. Laser cut layers painted and aged.

Just Ride The Waves


Some of this year's ornaments.  A state of mind to go with this year.  An anonymous surfer quote etched on the base as a mindset for dealing with the virus and other challenges in life.  So much is beyond our control, so we have to go along for the ride and anticipate the next one.    These are cast resin, set into laser cut Poplar wood bases.  There are LED lights in the base, activated by pressing on the bottom.  Most are bound for collections.  A few are still available.

 Thinking about this year's ornament.  It makes a good incense holder at least.  Cast metal toy about 1/32 scale.  Available

Fake onion, laser cut scrap pieces and plastic buttons.


Plastic toy shark and 1/72 scale Heller model kit.
The two seemed like a natural fit.

More work in small scale, but they're not ornaments this time. Each wooden box is either 2" x 3" or 3" square.  Italian and French windows using the laser cutter and hand made details. All of these are available for purchase.
