- Following a phone call from the Client informing us they were going with rubber base - we sprung into action and provided a design solution that would be affordable to the client's budget while also being advantageous to the design. The process consisted of ripping 4 x 8 foot baltic birch plywood sheets into 4" strips and kerfing the boards to fit the curves. We then filled all voids with Famowood Natural Wood Filler and hit it with General Finishes Gel Stain (in black) and General Finishes water based poly top coat (in satin). All work self-performed by mindmade.

- How to use an inexpensive material in an interesting way... that is a common consideration upon approaching design. In this case, there was a fantastic opportunity to create feature walls that flanked the main social area - the communal kitchen space. In this instance, we wanted to play off the soft, rounded geometry but add a layer of texture yet to be realized by the design. The direction - take 10' pine curtain rods, rip the back flats, and install horizontally. Lo and behold, a (fairly) affordable wall application that will (hopefully) act as a pleasant conversation piece for years to come.

It's all about the process! The end result isn't always about the quick pic to plaster all over the social. Its about learning, pushing, trying, educating, GROWTH.
