As a designer, I'm constantly finding things in my surrounding that I'd like to improve. For example, I am often in bed at night working on my laptop, when I'm done where does my computer go? On the bed with me and my partner? On my overly crowded night stand with books and water glasses? Probably not..to solve that problem (and have a reason for my guilty pleasure, woodworking) I designed and built wall-mount bedside computer holders.
...also side tables, weird ceramic sculptures, etc.
