8 TIPS TO SAVE MONEY FOR HANDYMAN IN THE WORKSHOP

Sep 13, 16 8 TIPS TO SAVE MONEY FOR HANDYMAN IN THE WORKSHOP

Nowadays, woodworking is getting more and more popular in the modern life. Therefore, if you know how to use these tips, it will make your life become a little bit easier. Let’s see the article below and check out what these tips are with me.

  1. Tip number 1

I will show you the first trick in this article now. In some cases, you are going to want to drill a hole for the screw or maybe you just need to drill your hardwood before you nail the screw. The easiest way to do it is to use a best impact driver that you have. You can just take a nail that you are going to use and put the head of it in your impact driver. You now fix the nail in the drill head so you can press the power pole. It works pretty well even on hardwood. Now, you are not limited to drill any holes in the hardwood or in the wall.?You can even use it like a framing nail art 16b by just chopping the head of it off and get to work.

  1. Tip number 2 and 3

Sometimes you want to make a small top for a project but like most of us, you run out of clamps or don’t have clamps. So the easy thing to do is just take a couple of scrap wood pieces and screw them down to surface. It is just a little wider than the actual width of the top and I like to put wax paper underneath the wood. Next, you just need to take a metal straight edge and lay it over the top. You get a nice clean edge every time now because I’ve got my block screw down and the wax paper is cutting down. I’m just going to put some glue on which I’ve already done on my work and I’m going to lay them in the tight up against the back block and then take a couple of wedges. Now you can buy anything at the local store. You can cut a couple of wood and just putting it on together and tapping into place instant plan. Now you can do a small top with whatever size that you need.

Summer’s Exhibition of Donald Judd Furniture

Jun 09, 16 Summer’s Exhibition of Donald Judd Furniture

Donald Judd Furniture

Organized with the Judd Foundation, the exhibition presented aluminum pieces by the minimalist sculptor, who began making furniture in the early 1970s. Meanwhile, the foundation itself installed similar tableaux at the nearby Mercer hotel. In both venues, pieces were shown for the first time as they might actually be used. Onetime objects on pedestals became, well, furniture.

“It took me eight years to feel bold enough to do this,” says Madeleine Hoffmann, who was hired by the estate in 1994 and now heads its furniture division. “Before, people tended to think of Judd’s furniture as sculpture.”

In a 1992 exhibition at A/D, a Judd bed was displayed without so much as a mattress. “People thought it was beautiful but said it couldn’t possibly be a bed. It looked too uncomfortable,” recalls Cunnick. This time, she added pillows and a blanket.

Art and Furniture Business

Jun 02, 16 Art and Furniture Business

How did you make the huge leap from business to the art world?

I picked up some really good business skills at a management-consulting firm. It was when I volunteered to help the PBS station in Boston organize a benefit auction that I realized I had an eye for art–and that I could apply my skills to the art business. I moved to New York and took a job in fine-art publishing and consulting. After five years, I started consulting on my own.

The next leap was from art consultant to interior designer.

I’ve always been interested in interiors and architecture. It got frustrating when I would frame beautiful works of art and then deliver them to a space that didn’t deserve them. It was infuriating. Being the control freak that I am, I wanted more say about where my artists’ work “lived.”

Important Section for Offices

May 28, 16 Important Section for Offices

Clear sections in offices

“When we began working on the building,” says architect John Keenen, “it was a total wreck. There were many small, dark rooms, and a rickety stair that zigzagged from bottom to top.” After demolition, virtually nothing remained. The street facade, part of a New York City Landmarks district, could not be modified, but the interior was gutted and the rear wall completely rebuilt. K/R installed, among other elements, new concrete floors with radiant heating, an extraordinary staircase capped with a new glass skylight, and entirely new, state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems.

With only 3,500 sq. ft. of space on four levels, the architects were challenged to deal with a rather tight container. Nonetheless, they developed an inventive strategy to reconfigure the building’s section. Two new, 18-in.-wide slots of space join the four levels, one that runs along the stairwell and the other along the rear facade of the building. Various stair rails, balustrades, and finely-detailed furniture elements such as reclining chairs, desk and glass screen make these spaces tumble-proof.

K/R designed the new garden facade as a curtain wall made of stucco, metal, and glass. From the outside, it reveals the spatial arrangement of the interior by expressing the floor slabs and vertical slots along with the variation in program along the different levels. From the inside, the wall has been designed to carefully mediate the flow of air, light, and views. Keenen improved an otherwise undistinguished backlot view by deftly combining clear, sandblasted and prismatic glass panels. Clear sections were used at eye level and behind the frosted acrylic balustrade to create oblique garden views and guard privacy; sandblasted glass panels bring in additional light; and the prismatic sections, composed of two pieces of clear glass laminated with an intermediate prism, refract light into the interior.

Natural Furniture Design and Interior

Natural House Interior

The treatment room was conceived as a fluid extension of the Zen rock garden currently under construction in the rear courtyard. Nature trickles in through a moat of river rocks lining the back wall. To disguise the room’s exposed pipes, the architects sheathed them in stalks of bamboo, a decorative motif repeated throughout the spa.

After gutting the derelict interior, “we took the space as far back as we could to create a clean line.” Completed in two months, the project afforded the multidisciplinary design team an opportunity to flex their full range of creative talents, building “every square inch of the place” from the window latches to the sound system. Despite their painstaking labor over minute details, the effect is unpretentious and very much in keeping with the low-key character of the neighborhood.

A subtle interplay of surface textures offsets the smooth wood planes of the furniture line, which features beds, tables, mirrors, and cabinets.

Polished concrete floors, pigmented a velvety-grey, mimic the appearance of slate. Prior to painting the walls, the designers skimmed the exposed brick with layers of plaster to smooth out surface modulations. A freestanding block of rough-hewn concrete, which serves as a step to the raised floor in back, bears the serendipitous quality of a found object. The oxidized metal window casings and exterior shutters were also designed to look indigenous to the space.
