Setting butterfly keys in a book matched walnut table top.
Couple of pots roughed out.
My other little metal working project, a captive hollowing rig. I used the “Black Snake” plans from Captain Eddie. I don’t know if it will be too flimsy at the stand. Can’t wait to try it. I’m still trying to decide if I’ll get a laser or a video camera.
My client’s (neighbor) son doing the welding on a table base. That little Hobart is just barely powerful enough on a 120V circuit.
Doing some metal working. I have almost no idea what I’m doing. I tried to lay down a bead with my 110V wire feed welder and it was reallllly ugly. My client says her son can weld, so we are going to go with that.
Delighted to have The Workroom in Dallas displaying and, in theory anyway, selling my wares. Thanks Nick!
Batch of platters. Birdseye Maple and African Mahogany.
Chair in progress. I’m re-using the legs and rails from an old queen anne chair and coupling that with a stump that I salvaged from my neighbors house. The relieved areas will reveal a trompe l’oeil chair back. The idea is to celebrate beauty in discarded objects and raw materials and the relationship between the everyday object of the chair and raw material of the tree.
Laying out a pattern for an upcoming chair.
This was my first time to visit. I had a furniture geek-gasm. If you haven’t been, this isn’t the good stuff. They have that in the various galleries. This is just stuff they want to make available for study. You can look under the furniture without getting on your hands and knees!
