Look, I made a thing
Building this set that will tour for Brown Box Theatre Project's production of the Scottish play.
Back when Kyler Taustin (director/designer) first gave me an idea of what he wanted (hi Kyler), he talked a lot about the set feeling distressed and worn down. One big idea was pallets being setup as walls upstage. Super cool, and cheap, and recyclable. Go green theatre.
He also wanted these sittables in the style of those kind of benches that like circle a tree in people's backyard? Like this.
So I go to the lumber yard to buy some 1 by 6 rough cut planks to make the seat part out of and 2by4 to do legs, framing, etc. And as I drive up to the lumber yard and also am thinking about the pallet walls, I'm like...pallets...planks...naturally distressed rough cut wood. AHA
And so you have these sittables which cost in total $28. and there's six of them and you can make benches or semicircles or full circles.
If you wanna see the rest of the set you'll just have to see the show...
