Buck Basket

Merry Wives of Windsor | Montana Shakespeare in the Parks | Summer 2019

The Giant Buck (Laundry) Basket for Falstaff to Sneak Away In

Plan A (which did not work)

My plan was to use aluminum flat-bar to help keep the basket lightweight since the jute rug itself was quite heavy. Unfortunately it did not hold the weight of the jute as well as I wanted and was quickly mangled by the actors (through no fault of their own).

Plan B

I enlisted the help of Scenic Designer Mike Salazar to help weld a steel frame for the basket. The new frame, while being heavier, can easily hold the weight jute, as well as that of a person on the edge.

Buck Away!

Drinks & Table

Pride & Prejudice | SUNY Oswego | Spring 2017

Drink Table
Magnetic Drink Tables for Assembly Balls

Materials: Magnets, Found Tables, Steel Sheets, Spray Paint

Two drink tables with plastic glassware filled with fake champagne were carried out by actors during a 10 second scene change. In order to decrease the likely hood of spilling and/or breaking glass, I found convincing plasticware, glued industrial magnets to the bases, and screwed steel sheets to the tops of the tables.

The champagne was a mixture of white grape juice and seltzer (to make any stains easier to remove).
