Check out some of the things I've been up to throughout the years!
This is one of my gap year woodworking projects which I started working on in September 2021 and am almost finished with! To build this couch, I had to make wooden boards with the planer and jointer. The couch is put together with mortise and tenon joints which I cut with a table saw. Other tools used: Handplane, band saw, radial arm saw, router.
Some Recent Projects
Woodworking & Metalworking
I started woodworking & metalworking when I was in 6th grade through a club at my middle school and loved the hands-on nature of making my ideas come to life. It is a hobby that I continue to enjoy today and have had tons of fun engaging in because I have been able to make a bunch of cool projects, such as: soap box derby cars, boats, a tree bookshelf, a purple heart desk, and so much more!
Tools: Band saw, jig saw, scroll saw, radial arm saw, table saw, planer & jointer, track saw, bead roller, etc.
Paper Art & Illustrations
I have always enjoyed making handmade cards for others. After learning about the Cricut Maker and its ability to precisely cut materials, I decided I wanted to learn how to use one so I could make more intricate cards. I applied to GripTape and received a $500 grant to buy the machine. From there, I learned how to design my cards in Procreate so that the Cricut Maker could cut them and I have been making paper illustrations/art ever since.
Just some fun crafts and creations I have made throughout the years!
During the summer of 2020, I was almost cast in the second season of HBO Max's crafting competition show, Craftopia. I went through a first round interview and was moved onto the next round to show a craft I was assigned to make; however, due to creative shifts and COVID-19, production was moved to adult crafters.
During quarantine last year, I experimented with digital art through Procreate! I really enjoyed the ability to choose from a wide variety of brushes, colors, and textures, while in the real world, you are limited by what you own. Here are some of my favorite pieces!
