Although this piece was finished in 2012, I am excited to share it for the first time through documentation.

In the cycling industry, the majority of bicycle stands favor function over form. The bicycles they cradle, in contrast, are beautiful and uniquely detailed objects of design.

Using native White Oak and Ash, this custom bike stand serves as a pedestal for a bicycle. A place not just to hang up a bicycle, but a place to display it as an object for appreciation.

The design of the stand was inspired by dock cranes and the geometric forms of the bicycle frame. Waxed marine twine joins the decorative bent ash forms to the main structure of the stand.
