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…

Let the real field testing begin.......... Rowan made a scarecrow today. Very proud he is. He's not letting it stay in the garden though it's in his room standing guard. Getting Higher in Roundtop Tx. Convertible canvas camper. All 4 sides can be rolled up and buckled. Or it can,in a few minutes be folded back and the full use of the open bed can be achieved. After I have time to properly field test I will post on the old blog. Raising the walls in Roundtop Tx project. Sycamore project- bedroom fireplace complete. Going to be a cool space. Sycamore project- fireplaces are complete. Old military ammo cans make great waterproof (almost indestructible)tool boxes. I keep some of my carving tools in this one.
