Valentine’s Day

Spent the Valentine’s Day in the studio listening to TED Talks while cutting cardboards.  Cutting cardboards because I’m in the process of designing and fabricating my first piece of furniture.  There was solitude in the simple and repetitive work, I imagined that Jesus might had this similar feeling when he was serving as a carpenter. […]

Cork Shelf Doors

Was late for fellowship tonight as I was caught up with finishing installing the last row of shelf doors in my home studio.  Took me a while, but glad that one part of my big studio re-modelling project is finally completed.

Cork Shelf Doors

Was debating what to do this afternoon, took a stroll around goldfish street, then flowers market, and ended up going to an art supplies shop to buy cork boards. Spent most of my day cutting and installing another row of cork shelf doors. Have a lot of ideas in my head on how to refurnish […]

Cork Shelf Doors

The bball gathering didn’t take place today because we were 1 person short, so I had the whole day all to myself.  Decided to indulge myself with some DIY fun.  Went out for lunch and then shopped for materials, then I spent the rest of the sweaty afternoon replacing a row of my shelf with […]

Cleanup

I disliked the roman blinds that was installed in my bedroom, they completely blocked the operable windows and discouraged natural ventilation and daylighting. After 2 years of occasional visual/psychological annoyance, I finally replaced them with rolling screens, they filter (rather than block) strong direct sunlight and leaves the operable windows operable even when they’re lowered. […]

Turning Point

The 3 kids in the house had finally moved back to their renovated apartment last week, tranquility was once again experienced after ~2 months!  Reclaimed my bedroom so I no longer had to sleep in my home studio, it’s nice to be able to physically separate the work and rest area once again.  Had kept […]

Cardboard DIY Crafts

Frank Gehry’s Wiggle Chair had a major influence on me.  The creativity and craftsmanship involved in transforming a common discarded material into something so gorgeous and yet functional is simply ingenious! I’ve been experimenting a great deal in upcycling corrugated cardboard into plant pots, file holders, iPhone stands, boxes, etc.  Yet my greatest encouragement in […]

Greening My Studio III

Spent much of my last week designing and assembling a miniature stone garden for my studio’s window shelf.  Due to my lack of care, a lot of the bonsai plants given during class already looks like they’re dying with much of their leaves lost.  Hopefully, with more tender care, they’ll be revived and bud out […]

Shelf Doors

Added some coverings for my studio’s shelve.  Like many of my DIY projects, it took much longer than I initially planned.  But it’s worth the effort, I can now use it to display whatever images I can dream up.  Nice furniture should be made to last, the ability to re-skin it to suit different contexts […]

Corrugated Cardboard

I’ve spent much of the last few days cutting up cardboard!  My mom must have thought that I was going insane or something. =) With a little spare time after the busy January, I decided to transform all the corrugated cardboard I’ve saved up from my lair’s furnishings into something useful, things like document holders […]
