Pin Point Heratige Museum

Gizmo was hired to fabricate a heritage musuem in the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' home town, Pinpoint, Georgia. the project was amazing and i think everyone is happy with the way it turned out. the New York Times found the project slightly controversial because of the judges relationship with a major donator to the museum, Harlan Crowe. "In the most recent case, the Times reports that Harlan Crowe, a close friend of Thomas who once gave his wife $500,000 for Liberty Central (a Tea Party-affiliated group,) is now financing a multimillion-dollar restoration of an old Georgia cannery where Thomas’ mother once worked, at the Thomas’ behest. The problem here is that the ethics code that binds federal judges says judges “should not personally participate” in raising money for charitable endeavors, out of concern that donors might feel pressured to give or entitled to receive favorable treatment from the judge." no comment, watch this video.

goal: to make new furniture out of old furniture i find on the street. this is a table built entirely (minus glue, 4 screws, and 4 leveling feet) from the pull out table leaves of an oak table. i disassembled the leaf pulls and used the material as legs.
