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…

Carving by Onetree - Reaching for inspiration. Cheers everyone it's Friday!#onetreewoodwork#woodcarving#contemplation #woodhand#woodart#tgif#cheers Fixer upper. All it needs is a little t.l.c.#fixerupper#restorationproject#tlc Designing in the dark. Will this piece continue to evolve past the apple juice bottle and fishing line stage of design or will it forever be forced to live in purgatory never reaching its crescendo. Sometimes the path is lit but more times then not, your left finding your way in the dark. Designing in the dark.#onetreewoodwork #furniturebuilderbynight #lightingdesign#woodworker#woodcarver#woodart#floorlamp A Coopers Howel Plane is my submission to @markhrobinson  and his #marks500thpost mystery giveaway! I was given this plane by my father out of his antique tool collection and it's a beautifully primitive wooden plane used in the process of making wooden barrels and more specifically in the fitting of the lid to the inside of the (Howell) or the groove on the inside of the barrel to create a waterproof seal.I also like to think that many a barrel of whiskey,beer or wine might have been stored properly thanks to this tool.#antiquetool#marks500thpost#woodenplanes#artisanbuilders#onetreewoodwork I saw this tip @tenkarabum to utilize hook keepers made by Fuji so that the Tenkara line,tippet and fly could be wound up and be kept on the rod instead of a separate spool . Then you can keep the whole fishing package inside the case ready to fish at a moments notice. Throw it in the truck,boat or backpack or all three and when the moment or the fish presents itself your prepared.#fishbum#tenkarabum#tenkararodco#backcountry#fly Saturday night gear.#handmadeknife#frictionfolder#savinelli #sandemanporto #saturdaynight Quick pickles.
