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…

My Girls caught a big one! Molly just realized they wrote a song about her. Pretty sweet. Rowan asking where his song is...... Happy Thanksgiving Siding making progress in Roundtop Tx. Mitering the corners rather then butting them to corners. Pain in the ass and slower but will look slick afterwards. Pumped 310 yards total at the Robertson Ranch proj. One hurdle down many to go. Sun is coming up at the Robertson Ranch project. 5:00 a.m- 300 yards or so of concrete to go. Alright,alright,alright.... Roundtop Tx proj- windows have mostly been installed. Our exterior walls- #1 s.y.p 2x6 walls that will be spray foamed on inside.1/2" cdx. Tyvek. Windows installed. Self adhesive window wrap installed over ears. trd 3/4" stripping with a product called Cora-vent nailed in between to create not only a rain screen but wall that can breathe. Artisan 7/8" t&g siding attached though the  3/4" and into stud behind. A man and his trusty beagle in thought.
