I'm not sure if this counts as 'released work', but I was quite happy with how it turned out so thought I'd share it anyway :)
Unfortunately it's not my house in case you were going to ask :P

Beautiful! I guess I have to post pics of the master suite I'm renovating!

Re: What s the best laptop for designers?

I almost sprung for a Surface Pro a couple of years ago. I loved the idea of having more or less full blown Adobe CC available on a tablet. The one thing that kept me away was the garbage stylus. If Adobe can follow up Photoshop for the new iPad Pro with at least Illustrator and InDesign I'm ditchi...

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

Here's a cool teaser for a project we've been working on for the last year; http://www.lakecountrymfg.com/power_tools.html We finally got to help soft-launch this new polisher we designed. Here's the video we put together that they've been playing alongside our ID model and Frankenstein test units ...

Re: What s the best laptop for designers?

Now that's "genius". Yep, I thought so too. I walked in expecting to fight for a discount on a new product, or thinking I would need to upgrade and try to get some sort of discount for the old one - so I was a pleasantly shocked. I stayed until had all my software reinstalled and tested the screen,...

Re: What s the best laptop for designers?

Update on my SurfaceBook - about six months ago (a year out of warranty) my screen started bulging slightly, creating halos at the four corners. I took it to my nearest Microsoft store and they confirmed the battery in the screen section was going bad - on the spot, they gave me a brand new (upgrade...

Re: Clear laminate for fabrics

Yes, sort of like that Bose case, but we played with different materials. The one in the middle is a woven polypro with an EVA foam backing, the sandwiched materials are heat molded as a single piece on an aluminum tool - on those the only detail was an oval recess for the 3 color rubber relief badg...

Re: Clear laminate for fabrics

We've done a good bit of heat-formed soft-sewn products over the years, we most often use a PP or PE woven skinned EVA foam. With enough pressure you can get very crisp details. If you're working with experienced soft-sewn factories they'll already have some preferred materials in place for that typ...

Was that one RWD? I know for a while they sold the sDrive models which were RWD only but nobody ever actually purchased.

Re: What is BMW doing?

Yep, it's very, very rare. It was built at the BMW plant in South Carolina in 2006 and promptly shipped to Munich as a corporate car. I got it in 2012 with 22,600 miles on it direct from Corporate BMW. There are a few others floating around in the US, but it's rare to find one. 2006 was the last yea...

Re: What cell phone do you own?

Last Fall I finally had to give up on MS phones and got a Samsung S8. I hate Android...I loved the Windows phone UX. :(

Supposedly MS has scheduled the release of their proper 2nd gen phone(s) for fall. Rumour has it that they will be the last of the ex-Nokia family.

Re: Accouting Software Xero?

We use Freshbooks - it provides the invoicing and tracking we need with just enough accounting not to be annoying. We worked with our accountant to figure out the fastest way for the software to give them what they need for the real accounting.

Re: What is BMW doing?

The Vagon prices have stabilized - now it's more of a matter of what mods are acceptable, as the stock ones are the rarest - but I've only driven one that had truly been thrashed, so I passed on it. As for the M2 vs M2 competition, the latter has just the right amount of power! When I finally let my...
