Objects

Davey McEathron Architecture doesn't just do buildings; we also design and fabricate objects of a smaller scale. If you want help realizing a piece of furniture or art, we're your team. We love to get our hands and faces dirty.

 

langston mailbox

After some period of time, the scrap piles start to make us look more like a junk yard than an architecture firm. One of our favorite things to do is to look at a pile of scrap and design something with it. The Langston Mailbox was designed in just this manner - using cut offs from previous projects. The mailbox was then painted with chalkboard paint to allow it to be both a sign board and a receptacle for that (mostly) useless stuff the mailman drops off everyday. 


LANGSTON TABLE AND BENCHES

The Langston Table was fabricated using recycled Douglas Fir pulled from the jobsite dumpster after demolition of walls in the extensive remodel of the Langston Project. The frames for the tables and benches were fabricated from 1" solid round bar, 1/2" solid round bar and 3x3 angles, then blued using gun metal bluing. 

The photos show several iterations and testing of ideas for the table frame. 

(Yes! We dumpster dive quite frequently)


COFFEE TABLE

Made from wood from a fallen Elm tree and steel.

The large knot hole was filled, layer by layer, with multiple colors and opacities of polyester resin.

Design and fabrication by Davey McEathron and Rebecca Holliday. Wood donated from the good folks at Hatch Workshop


ZIG-ZAG TABLE

The legs were fabricated from scrap rebar. They form a continuous jagged line around the table. The top is tongue and groove beetle-kill pine.

 


Polo Sliding Door

We designed and built this door for the Polo Project, clad in leftover flooring from the bedroom. A hand-stitched leather grip brings warmth to the substantial steel handle.


CHEVRON TRELLIS

This trellis was fabricated from scrap rebar and round bar. 


Pine and steel gate

Designed and fabricated by Davey McEathron.

MAILBOX

Designed and fabricated by Davey McEathron. Created from cold rolled steel and expanded metal mesh. Exterior painted with chalkboard paint to allow mailbox to be used as a sign board or just to let the mailman know there is outgoing mail. 

RESTAURANT TABLES

Designed by Jay Hargrave Architecture: Steel bases fabricated by Davey McEathron and Jay Hargrave Architecture; Mesquite table tops by Drophouse and Jay Hargrave Architecture.

BIRDPRO CAMERA HOUSING

Designed and fabricated by Davey McEathron and Kyle Norman. Cameras are intended to document the transformation of previous farmland back to prairie land in Katy, Texas. Brackets are intended to mount the cameras to utility poles and protect the cameras from vandalism.

DOG FEEDER

Designed and fabricated by Davey McEathron and Jay Hargrave Architecture for Furry Feet Furniture.

Farmhouse Tables and benches

The table top is made with siding reclaimed from the Syracuse remodel. The lumber was left over from various construction projects.
