Timber picture frames

Some recent picture frames I’ve made from reclaimed timber. 

17 foot strip plank sea kayak. By Bruce Johnston.

My old man, Bruce Johnston, has taken it upon himself to build a seventeen foot strip plank sea kayak. This project would have taken off a little earlier if it wasn’t for a recent injury leaving him out of action for three months with a snapped achillies tendon and a broken ambition.
Since then, all has healed and he has been back in the workshop crafting this beautiful kayak.

More photos still to come! 

Tom Burreys Tattoo Tool Box

After seeing the tool box I did for myself, friend and respected Tattoo artist, Tom Burrey approached me with an idea to create one for him for the up and coming Rites Of Passage Tattooing Convention. Tom needed a travel case that would ensure all of his delicate equipment and tools were kept safe and locked in tightly during his travels. After doing a little research for inspiration and finding nothing, I had to come up with the layout purely on what I thought would be best and practical during use and travel. After finding no information about a solid timber travel case for tattoo artists, I wondered if it may be the first of its kind.
It was a pleasure working on this box and something both Tom and I are proud of.
