Marina Del Rey

I just got some pictures from Josh and Rafi, A.K.A. Form Los Angeles (see link in below post). They bought the bedroom set that I built a few months ago, and I was honored for it to be included in a condo in Marina Del Rey, right on the water, surrounded by really amazing pieces, all of which were much more expensive than my bed I'm sure. They also commissioned me to build a patio coffee table and a side table that they designed.
They initially wanted the coffee table to be built from teak, but that turned out to be too cost prohibitive. We settled on clear redwood with a clear oil finish and polyurethane. My friend Tom helped me with the polyurethane, which was enormously helpful. I'm not sure on the source of the design- I just copied a picture that Josh and Rafi provided. I'd have to say that it turned into a really good copy though.
The glass side table caused me much frustration, as mentioned in the below post. To make a long story short, the first piece of glass cracked, the second had holes drilled too small, and I ended up with just a couple hours to get the third piece of glass in place and get everything finished to meet the deadline. All of this resulted in a piece that was not everything I had hoped (likewise for Josh and Rafi) but it still looks pretty freaking hot.


  1. Wow. Beautiful photos. Stunning Design. It's so nice you were able to get photographs of your pieces in their setting. Really cool!

  2. This blog just seemed to step up to a new level of style and hipness. When you get to a hundred followers, I feel I will have to graciously bow out or be ridiculed for bad form (and bad smell). Truly excellent work. Boston, huh? How did you get that gig? Can't wait till you can quit your day job and maybe help design my brewery. Please keep all comments restricted to people named Whitney.
