Wooden Business Card Holder

Here is a standard business card holder, laser crafted from cherry hardwood and hand finished. Although a simple design, laser engraving can be added to each side to give it extra details and styling. It also is easily disassembled for flat storage/transport.

Holiday 2014 Laser Cut Wood Ornaments

Here are some holiday ornaments that I designed and produced in December 2014. One is a kid’s name design and the other a design based on the Golden Gate Bridge. Both are about 3″ round in size and were laser cut out of popular wood. They turned out great for hanging on the Christmas tree.

Toto-ring – Anime Inspired Wood Ring

Been creating prototypes of wooden rings with “hungry” characters, so finally released the “Toto-ring”, which is inspired by a popular Japanese anime character. One side is sleepy, while the other side is hungry and “eating” your finger when you wear it.

They are laser cut and etched from cherry hardwood, then hand sanded. Also finished with a polyurethane coating. Each is individually made and unique due to the nature of wood.

You can order one here at the shop.

#23 Sneaker Lace Locks

Been testing new product ideas and so far, these laser cut sneaker lace locks have been turning out well.

First up, small “#23” lace locks to go with the popular Air Jordan sneaker, available in Red or Black (at the shop). As a fan of sneakers and a semi-retired sneaker collector, I want to create products that will enhance and benefit the sneaker culture/community. Using the #23 to compliment the Jordan Brand is an obvious choice. Here are the locks on my Laser IV’s and Black/Carolina Blue 14’s.

Check back for more designs for Jordan’s and other sneakers in the future.

Valentine’s Day Heart Dunny

A very Happy Valentine’s Day to my lovely wife. For putting up with me, I decided to create and give her this “Heart Dunny” out of wood with matching “Heart Card”. This little guy is laser cut out of maple hardwood, hand assembled, painted, and stands about 3″ tall. Bonus #weeklytoyproject for those keeping track. Have a great President’s holiday weekend!

Year of the Snake – Silver Edition

The “Year of the Snake” in the Lunar New Year is coming to an end, and to cap off the occasion, here is the Silver Edition as a companion piece to the previously created Gold Edition. Measuring 12″x12″, it is also painted laser cut and engraved wood on painted canvas. The “Year of the Horse” is coming soon!

Jordan Coffin Shoebox – Wood Toy

If you weren’t able to make it out to the “Fresh To Death” art show this past Saturday night down in San Diego at Rosewood, here are photos of the third coffin shoebox wood toy that was created for the event. This toy is styled like a Jordan Brand sneaker box and is wearing a pair of gold Jordan IV’s. It also has the same specs as the other two.

Each coffin shoebox figure is adored with matching “fresh” golden sneakers and they stand at almost 10″ tall. They are laser cut and engraved out of wood, then assembled and painted with a vintage/worn feel. Inside the coffins features a Hawaiian print floral lining, as well air vents on the “top” of them, as they can be filled with potpourri. These both tie into the theme of “Fresh To Death”. They are ready to hang on the wall, as well as being to stand on their feet or on their backs.

If you were at the show, you saw the full display, which includes matching skeletons and potpourri flowers inside the coffins. Furthermore, each of these pieces are entitled “2 Feet Under”, and are editioned by their “brand”. Here are some pics of all three together as well as the skeleton surprises:

This turned out to be a BONUS #weeklytoyproject, since I finished this last week and it was revealed over the weekend. Look out for a recap and photos of the “Fresh To Death” art show this week.

Nike Coffin Shoebox – Wood Toy

In case you can’t make it to the “Fresh To Death” Art Show tomorrow at Rosewood San Diego, here  is the reveal of the 2nd Coffin Shoebox Wood Toy that will be on display there.

This one is fashioned after the classic Nike sneaker box, features the Nike Air Max 90 on it’s feet, and has all the specifications of the Adidas themed one:

“Fresh To Death” is only one day away, so try to make it out there and be sure to look for the hidden surprise inside each coffin. The event starts at 7pm, so get there early, since you will want to participate in the charity art auction and holiday toy drive, which benefits the Boys and Girls Club of San Diego!

Dreamy Treats – Wooden Holiday Ornaments

Just released in the beginning of December and sold exclusively at Creme Caramel LA, the “Dreamy Treats” are wooden holiday ornaments inspired by the Creme Caramel LA dessert menu. Sold in sets of 3, each set represents a delicious theme. Laser cut and etched out of walnut hardwood, then hand sanded and finished, these ornaments are sized in the 3″x3″ range. They would look great decorating a tree or other holiday paraphernalia. Be sure to stop by Creme Caramel in Sherman Oaks to pick up a set (or two)! Whats your favorite?

Adidas Coffin Shoebox – Wood Toy

On Dec. 14, 2013, “Fresh To Death”, a group art show and charity auction event, is opening at the sneaker shop Rosewood San Diego. My good friend Gary (aka Freehand Profit) is one of the hosts, and when he asked me to partake, I gladly accepted. With the theme in mind and my #weeklytoyproject still going strong, I decided to create three “coffin shoe box” figures for the show.

This “Adidas” Coffin Shoebox was the first one completed and is themed in the style of a classic Adidas shoebox. Each coffin shoebox figure is adorned with matching  “fresh” golden sneakers and they stand at almost 10″ tall. They are laser cut and engraved out of wood, then assembled and painted with a vintage/worn feel. Inside the coffins features a Hawaiian print floral lining, as well air vents on the “top” of them, as they can be filled with potpourri. These both tie into the theme of “Fresh To Death”. They are ready to hang on the wall, as well as being to stand on their feet or on their backs.

If you’re in San Diego (or nearby) make sure you come out to the show to see this figure, as well as the other two, in person. Perhaps there will be additional surprises inside of them as well. Looking forward to seeing all the other artwork from the other great artists there too!

Cork Dunny – Resin Cast Toy Dunny

After laser cutting and engraving  a few cork sheets for my good friend Freehand Profit, that he is using for his soon-to-be-released Lebron X Cork Sneaker Gas Mask, there were a few scrap cork pieces left over. Having resin cast a not-so-perfect 3″ Dunny, I figured I could use the leftover cork scraps to wrap the Dunny, and this is the result. I ended up engraving in him as well, to add a little extra and chose a medieval theme. It was a bit tricky to get him lined up for the engraving, but worked out pretty well. Maybe I will do a few more of these “Cork Dunnys” in the future.

There’s only a few more weeks left for #weeklytoyproject , what should I do next?

Spikey Stacked – Plexiglass Toy

After developing and producing the Munwood figure, I wanted to explore the “stacked” toy concept with different ideas and came up with this “Spikey” looking figure. Instead of wood, I figured acrylic plexiglass might work as well and this guy stands at around 2.75″ tall. He has interesting texture and look, so I will probably refine him some more and maybe produce some as a limited run. I may even end up molding and resin cast him as well.
