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…

On my way to work this morning the road had a bit of water/river covering it.

Yea that's right I'm fixing a tiara with a tiny pink glue gun filled with a silvery sparkly glue stick. You wanna fight about it. #dadlife#thuglife#saturdaymorning The bluebonnets are pretty iconic in this part of Texas they often cover entire pastures in a blanket of blue hues. Combined with the Indian paintbrushes (red) it can be quite the site. We take them for granted and sometimes even curse them for the crowds of tourist it brings. I'm trying to do better about that (the cursing)and I'm starting with enjoying this bluebonnet that has sprouted extra early in my backyard due to all the warm weather we have been having. #tx#bluebonnets #texas#appreciatewhatyouhave Trimming is in the air today......#artisanbuilders#customhomes#homebuilder#trimcarpentry The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
