Workshop inventions from an artist, an architect.
Oakland artist Sam Richardson built the table on casters shown at right; two drop leaves, attached with piano hinges, allow him to expand the work surface. A single wooden brace holds each leaf in place.
His paper roller (above left) has two wall-hung supports for wooden dowels that run through spools. A wooden crank glued to the top dowel lets him wind paper up from the bottom. After finishing a roll, he cuts paper into sheets for gift wrap.
To hold small hand tools securely, Mr. Richardson tacked 1/2-inch-wide strips of leather to a board at 1-inch intervals.
For a studio located in Beverly Hills, California, architect March Appleton designed a picture track that's an extension of the stair rail. The 2-inch-wide wooden molding was screwed to 1-by-2 strips that were screwed to the wall, leaving a slot between rail and wall to hold a changing display of pictures.
