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…

Morning has broken. The desolation of my lettuce plant: cabbage loopers have descended upon my garden with great vengeance- attacking not only the lettuce but the broccoli and Brussel sprouts. Laying waste and leaving nothing but a path of destruction in their wake. Do not go gentle into that goodnight.... urban farmer turns vigilante. No looper left alive... all must parish. We must kill the entire bloodline. The very fate of our tiny garden depends on it...... TGIF friends!!! I stopped by one of my all time favorite butcher shops on my way to a new job site they happen to make some of the best turkey jerky in the world. Old school doesn’t even begin to describe it. Keep Main Street America alive. Will miss it when it’s gone. Quick very abridged vid of Smith project.
We had our cleaners come and do a make ready as we march towards completion. Many details to come in the next few weeks pool,landscape,road and entrance. It’s always satisfying to see something you’ve worked on for a year get close to completion. It’s almost time to turn the page. Almost....................... but not yet. Keep calm and carry on until then. Sunday morning vibes. Hung a new proper light for over the dining table...... and yes that’s a heron I carved from cedar flying out of the wall (almost exactly due south-dumb luck). Below and to the left was my homage to Starry Night I carved with a chainsaw. The lamp in the corner was driftwood I found on the banks of Llano river while  fly fishing. The plaque above the window is carved in Latin IPSI SIBI SOMNIA FINGUNT with a hawk carved on one side and a tree on the other. Home is where the heART is. Date night at our favorite restaurant.
