There's some nice work here.
I've not been around for quite some time. Default BS has kept me away for several years and I'm trying to force-feed it back into my sphere of influence. I've been spending a lot of time making stuff. Furniture, mostly. Some other things here and there. I'm also working on bringing a product to market; hopefully before the end of the year but more likely the 1st quarter '15. But I'm usually thinking about building stuff for the playa, while I'm working on something else. When I gather materials, the playa is always a part of the consideration whether or not they end up used for something to go there. On that point I am rapidly running out of storage space.
I laughed at Trilobyte's comment about "You can tell we're Burners because of the box contents"; it occurred to me that were I that organized I, too, would give away my affinity. As it stands, I've just got shit everywhere.
I really regretted not being able to get out there these past few years as I had jumped on board discussions for creating 'The Pier', when they first started up and was quite psyched at the possibility of being able to build it. Alas....
Last time, our camp took an art car, and I really want to do it again next time, albeit on a smaller scale (read: golf cart or an econo-box chassis such as a Geo Metro, etc). And just a couple of days ago, I had an idea for a deep playa installation (if not a camp). So, the cauldron is always cooking. Like today, when I checked out a late-40's Ford pickup parked at a local business a couple of miles away; dude has rebuilt the back bed with a solid frame and stake-holding setup, and I just stood there thinking about how I could build a box on the back to take to the playa. I might not get to sleep tonight, for thinking about it.
I've procured a separate sketchbook dedicated to art car brainstorming 'cause the other one has furniture and other designs in it. Nothing too fancy (art car ideas, not the sketchbook), as I'll likely be flying solo from first hammer drop to Exodus, so the timeframe/labor/ability to actually execute something will undermine the technical competency and complexity.
Anyway, here's a couple pics of the last piece I recently sold: a buffet/sideboard made from boards of a shipping crate to a Boulder drugstore that's been out of business for about 40 years, with top/sides/shelves made from a bookcase from the deceased drugstore owner's now-demolished ranch house in NoBo. Went to the Carnegie branch in town and found the entire history of the guy, which really added to the piece. Made the door pulls from a salvaged leather couch by the road on the east side of town.
So...yeah. Here's me. Trying to get rolling again.
