This is a POP (Point of Purchase display) for my brothers company Tünr. He makes specialized socks and laces for classic shoes (sneakers). Check out his work at tü
This was the first display idea we made. His idea was that he wanted his socks and laces to be considered like ties and cufflinks . . . so we made a beautiful rich wood setting for the product to be viewed and stored. the bottom drawer locks . . . this is to create a bit of hype. In this line of work only certain clients get to see the new product in the drawer.
I made this of sapele, wengé, plywood and hard figured maple.

This is currently being crated to ship to Coat of Arms in NYC.

That’s fantastic work! Change Tünr to RRWW and you can ship one my way – I would be very proud to use it and others like it as my master bedroom’s furniture.

This reminds me of that American 50’s Style ‘Art Deco’ look that is slowly coming back again.

Thanks for sharing!

Loving that wenge. Epilog? Although people catch heat here for advertising, I appreciate the link and I bought some socks. very clever idea that I’m sure will do very well. I’m just dumb enough where I need my socks labeled “L” and “R” :)

That’s a very nice piece. As are the rest of your projects you posted. You have quite a range of work and all very well done.

I found the links interesting as well.

Fantastic “artwork” : )

Do you mean laser when you say epilog? No, I did this with templates and a router. Because of the font I had to make the t,n, and r with inserts. Came out perfect. Whew! :-) Interesting that you say Art Deco because I had been immersing myself in that and art nuevo just prior to doing this work. I am partial to Deco and often find myself referring to it.
Thanks for the comments!

It’s a compliment when someone accuses you of using a laser! It’s really outstanding work, especially considering your methods. I’m really glad you shared this; and I got some socks!

I’m also now enjoying your spoons, which are expertly executed. We have another famous spoon artist in our midst; you won’t be long to find him:)
