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…

For those of you who love seeing pictures of beautiful houses (house porn), possible diy tips, enjoy watching the building process, looking for design ideas and/or watching how a father and son build custom homes together. Please follow along @artisanbuilt The guys are laying these massive tiles out on the porch at the Smith project. I had my doubts early on but I think when finished it's going to look sharp. .

#artisanbuilders #customhomes#customtile#finehomebuilding The party is over. Back to school. Obligatory picture of the first day tells the story! God speed teachers. #brenhamelementaryschool New trucker! What do you think? TGIF friends! Dad and I surveying a future spot for another Artisan Builders project. Paging Dr. Pork Butts. 
1) inject with apple juice and spices
2) cover with yellow mustard and coat with dry rub
3)place on the barbi over mesquite coals and hickory chunks
4) drink beer
5) smoke for 6 hrs doing your best to keep temp at 250 or below
6) drink beer
7) taking full advantage of modern appliances (slightly cheating) place pork butts into a pan covered with foil for a couple more hours to to create fall apart pork (hopefully)
8) just in case this doesn't work drink another beer. I don't always drink fine Japanese single malt whiskey. But when I do,it probably means a generous client bought it for me. Cheers my friends!🥃🥃
