“You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin’ to?
You talkin’ to me? Well I’m the only one here. Who the f*ck do you think you’re talking to?”
Powerful lines.
Iconic lines delivered by De Niro in Taxi Driver.
A film by Martin Scorsese.

The Scorsese.

We’ve all heard of a director’s chair. Woodstocks kicks it a notch higher with this director’s bed/headboard for a local film director.Two-inch thick planks form the bed frame. Upcycled floorboards for cross rails where the matress rests. Aside from pull out drawers underneath, nothing really special about this queen size bed.
The headboard was a different matter, though.
The client wanted something like (albeit simpler) the “Naked Amp” mural for his headboard.

The Scorsese headboard was made from 1 ½ inch thick planks, bolted together to form a giant clapper, almost 4 feet tall from top of bed. A hand carved film strip relief was embeded on one side of the board counterbalancing a 3-inch angle bar, secured with buttonhead hex bolts, to border the opposite side. Embeded GI pipe fittings and bolted scooter sprockets aged to a pewter-like finish gives off a nice contrast to a Kamagong ‘camera box’ inlay.

Yes, we do custom sizes too.
So if you want something special done, it’s best that ‘you talkin’ to me’.
