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.

    A good way to blow off some steam. Get it? Haha–nevermind.

    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…

Here comes the sun....Cheers🍻#tgif#herecomesthesun #beatles#itsfriday A house my dad built in 1992 we are back replacing some of the original all wood windows with some Anderson E-series Eagle clad windows. All wood is great but you have to keep paint on it.Always. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail on this house is phenomenal and as a teenager watching him build it was one of the driving forces that eventually led me into building houses with him.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#secondgenerationbuilder#homebuilders#craftsmanship#devilisinthedetails #buildyourdreams#architecture#finehomebuilding#magazineworthy
