Wow.  This is my last Low-Commitment Project.  After five years, we’re winding down the venture.  It seems fitting that my final piece is an Ideas Quilt; the notion of having an idea stockpile is really comforting to me.

Low-Commitment Projects: A Wooden Bar

September 12, 2016

This is one of my favorite projects I’ve done in recent memory.  I’d been thinking about it for ages.  A Wooden Bar is a set of painted sculptures (acrylic on MDF) representing a complete bar on a reasonable budget.  In my mind, these are like props.  See more photos on Low-Commitment Projects.
