Media Stand

A response to In Union Remotely, a “Call for Woodworking” by The Shaker Museum – March 2021

I was inspired by some shaker shelves, which are very nice.

Visit to Neutra’s Reunion House

As explained by D Neutra (son of R J Neutra) the Reunion House (2440 Earl St, LA, CA) was built as a spec house while the VDL was being repaired after a fire.  The Reunion House was designed to accommodate an older family, after children have moved.  There was a guest room for the children, and this is the origin of the house’s name.

Currently the house is well lived in by D Neutra and his wife.

Long horizontal brickwork (and tile in the kitchen) similar to some FLW brickwork.

Dion explaining the kitchen cabinet pulls…

More pulls

The bathroom features a horizontal mirror with standard mirror cabinets floating in front.  Also, clear story windows look through to an adjoining interior room.

Living room vibes…   

Dion explains the significance of his sliding glass door, which leads to the patio.  Largest? First?

Very nice galvanized exterior lamp

Visit to Integratron

The Integratron was built in the desert north of Palm Spring by George Van Tassel. He maintained that the plans were given to him by extraterrestrials, and that the building would provide the means for everlasting life.  George died before its completion, but now the building which happens to be acoustically superb, is used for sonic baths.
