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…

Catalpa tree in bloom at my parents house.#trees#catalpatree#treesarecool Time to start rocking and rolling here on the lazy R ranch.#artisanbuilders#customhomebuilders#txhomes#austincounty Happy Earth Day. #earthday#johnmuir#walkabout#explore Leaving End Of The Road winding my way through the property passing this lake it's always a struggle not to get the fly rod out that rest just under the backseat and cast a few flies. I always say as I pass maybe tomorrow I'll stop.70* sunny slight cool breeze. Damn nice.#flyfish#txfish#gonefishing#zerofuckstogive We are finishing up the guest house at THE END OF THE ROAD project and the client is going to call it the Nest. A very fitting name  indeed cradled amongst the oak trees.#artisanbuilders #customhomes #txbuilder Day at the lake with the wife we had a much needed break from all of the rain we've been getting down here in Texas. To windy to fly fish but perfect for eating some Soppresata,cream Havarti,French bread,Calamata olives,tzatziki and cornichons making for an awesome charcuterie plate.#somervillelake#txlake#heb#brenhamtx#charcuterie#towindytofish At the Houston Zoo today with my son and 25 other 6 yr olds chaperoning a class trip. While this pic looks like total zen and shit I can assure you looks can be deceiving no zen will be had when at the zoo with 26- 6 yr olds.#hostonzoo#houstontx Overcast sky at the Lazy R ranch.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#txcustomhome#customhomebuilder#luxuryhomes
