One Tree Woodwork

Custom woodworking and art

Curves ahead

In order to start regurgitating the idea I have somewhere in my head I have built a model of it (idea) out of plywood. Using it to play with proportion and figure out some of the more complex joinery that will be involved. Hopefully after I’m finished thinking through the problems I will take apart the individual pieces to use as templates.

The objective and the (rules) is for a wall cabinet: with max dimensions 30″H x 30″W x 10″D

 

I was able to take my steamer on a trial run to soften some cedar strip to help me loft the curves of the cabinet.

    Looks like a wood laundry basket. IKEA? Probably sell a million of them. BTW, I hate to beg for attention but did either of you catch my post Hawk In the Rain? It was for you guys. (inspired by your hawk carving) And me. I don’t know. Living in the world turns me into something else. You have to be a kind of animal, out there…after twelve days away from the grind i am beginning to remember myself but as I was saying in Slo-Mo it is becoming ever more clear that true spirit-living must happen somewhere else, off the grid. THE grid…I just want to be a kid again…

The last time we went on a trip out trusty Beagle stayed at Grandma's and when I came to pick her up this happened. Such a patient dog....#oldgreyhairedbeagle Setting some red ear slider turtles that have been in captivity free today. They had lived the last few years in an aquarium 12"x24". Freedom my friends good luck.... Driving home following a painted sky Learning to fly. From the sketches of Leonardo Da Vinci built by Onetreewoodwork. Built from pruning branches in the backyard,scrap of linen cloth,hemp rope, upholstery tacks and a love of foolish pursuits. A leather bound folder I keep sketches and ideas of stuff I want to build. On it is a sketch from one of Da Vinci's notebooks he was consumed with birds and flight and how man could fly like a bird. This sketch of a wing was always so beautiful to me.....rare I think to have someone devoted equally to science and art. Training my child labor and working on an experimental art/science instillation using some of the branches removed during pruning. Will post outcome of build hopefully tonight. Fans of Leonardo da Vinci and extreme foolishness stay tuned...... Fall colors in full effect here in Tx. The weather apparently has been just right for max color. Country roads:take me home
