Keep up with the goings-on in the shop.
A favorite carving commissions from last year was this realistic tiger head. It was applied to the center of a custom bed headboard made by @masterpiecewoodworks designed by @dellmitchellarchitects . Made in mahogany and about 6.5" across.
A project from this past summer.. A friend asked me to carve two special wedding gifts, one for a family member and the other for a close friend. She wanted to incorporate their initials, wedding dates, a salmon and a favorite local mountain of each recipient. I thought it would be interesting as a turned frame medallion-like design that I could repeat and change out the mountain scene. They are made of cherry and are about 8" in diam.
Finished shots of the legs I recently reproduced for Gary at @renew.furniture . The desk was in really tough shape and he did a great job putting it all back together and giving it a new life. Nice work!
Awning windows are glazed and ready to install in the new workshop. For weatherstripping I went with traditional and durable spring bronze. #windows #woodworking #millwork #molding #customwoodwork #newworkshop #366mainstreet #biddeford #maine #fenestration
Finally got around to putting my library together. Only took about a year! The 18th c. walnut desk was found at a local antique store last year. Walls and trim are @farrowandball Card Room Green and paneled ceiling is Joa's white.
The finished lion head bass scroll. Last picture shows what I was copying.
Awning windows for the new workshop coming along. Can't wait to see them installed and all the natural light they'll provide.
Drip edge molding for the bottoms of my two windows and door for the new workshop. It's a traditional (and pretty) way to help prevent water from coming in the sill. I made it with a couple bits on the router table and the dado blade on the table saw. #millwork #woodwindows #oldwindow #traditionaldesign #366mainstreet #woodworking #molding #woodwork #architecture #traditional #biddeford #maine #handmade #newworkshop #newengland #custommade #customwoodwork
