Check out this new Xerox video. MADE was hired to design and build the mobile office system featured in the ad, which is fully tricked out with seating, flip down desks, automatic printer lifts, and a coffee brewing station. Thanks to Xerox and Ascentium for including MADE in this project!
These are photos of a project we completed earlier this year. Designed by our very talented pals at Ditroen. Photos by Aaron Leitz Photography.
Overall view of the installation
The unit is layered with solid wood tapered tiles and varying widths of ash slats.
The graphics were all laser etched, and then finished with satin varnish.
Here are pictures of a new collaboration between MADE and Esque– live edge maple and walnut cutting boards, each custom routed to house beautiful glass domes. Perfect for parties, dinners and tastings. Each one varies, so call to learn about current inventory.

Here are photos of the ceiling project we were installing over the past 5 months. We are glad to see it done!
These pendant lights hang over the walnut slab dining room table (that we are building as we type this!)

Master bedroom, and a serious meeting.
Here are some photos of a sculptural bench that we recently installed at Clark College in Vancouver.
The blocks of cedar are shaped and installed to resemble clusters of columnar basalt.
The largest block (weighing 150 lbs.) is laser etched in memory of the donors son.
This wood was taken from remaining cutoffs from a tree farm in WA, supplied by a local forester.
Fancy chainsaw work and lots of sanding created the faceting that emulates natural stone.
New standing bar in process. Completion photos to follow… soon… we hope.
Here is a progress update on the installation of the custom ceiling at the Oregon Coast:
(Step 1) Create insanely complex shop drawing
(Step 2) Install 2 x 4 furring strips milled to exact tolerances.
(Step 3) Hang fabric between furring strips.
(Step 4) Sort through material and find best matches.
(Step 5) Start installing—proceed with caution.
(Step 6) Keep going.
(Step 7) Make crazy concealed flipper doors where access is needed.
(Step 8) Admire how crazy flipper doors close and completely disappear.
(Step 9) Scribe fit around steel columns.
(Step 10) Do this for about 5 months, until complete. (To be continued…..)
These are some pictures of a sofa and bed that we built for a client here in SE Portland:
The sofa is made from walnut. Thanks to Think Design for the custom upholstery!
We wanted the silhouette of the side table to match that of the upholstery. The table and cabinet are made from solid walnut.
Two sliding doors reveal interior storage space.
Overall view of the bed, shelving, and soffit.
Detail of the corner of the bed—this was hand shaped and sanded to fit the contour of the mattress.
On each side of the bed we built custom shelving, installed into the drywall nook.
The finley ceiling is going in. This is the first of 15,000 lineal feet of riftsawn white oak!
The first step was to stretch black speaker fabric over the entire dropped ceiling.
Each light, speaker, and fire sprinkler fits perfectly within the randomized pattern. Our tolerances for this job is less than 1/16″ over 50′.
Here are some pictures of the RN-74 communal table in process.
The table is made up of solid walnut planks with brass inlay—after we install the brass, we scrape it flush to the wood— you can see the brass shavings mixed in with the walnut. This was very, very satisfying.
Detail shot of the brass after it is scraped flush.
Here are the two halves ready for final assembly. We are installing a solid brass block between the halves. The final dimensions are 43″ wide x 12′ long.
