Very happy to introduce the Pipeline Collection.

Here are shown some of the objects I've designed and produced using my custom cylindrical router.

I enjoy very much using that machine, but at the end of the day, seating on these chairs and have a nice diner, or riding my skateboard is what brings me the most joy. So this log is all about objects.

Here's the first design with a rattan seat, looks awesome and is very comfortable.

wavy tray: two are cut at the same time, so there's no waste.

The Ribbon chair is my favorite design, surprisingly stiff and very light.

Sometime, i get random marks appearing on the products...

I'd love to get one of these hand held portable printers just so i can add a lot more to these pipes.

Cutting chairs produce some offcuts. So, im now trying to design smaller objects that would fit in between bigger ones likes the chairs.

I can fit 6 pairs of spectacles into the backrest of the ribbon chair. frames and branches.

Skateboards: an other object that is commonly laminated using molds and a substantial amount of labor.

My cruisers are made in a few minutes and i can make a different shape overtime is i want.

the curve makes it just stiff enough.
