It’s a while since I blogged, I’ve been busy this year cutting up large pieces of wood into smaller pieces. It’s a hobby.
I’ve stretched myself this project and am making a tallboy. It has almost 100 pieces of wood and some carving and some inlay work, so it’s going to be a real ‘grown-up’ piece of carpentry.
Firstly, around Christmas I borrowed an electric motor saw to cut my lumps of oak into slabs…
Then I spent the next month cutting these into usable pieces
I did some old school ‘data transfer’…
This is what I plan on making..
So, I started gluing it up..
And now I have to start on the drawers. You’ll notice that I haven’t drawn any handles on my sketch, that’s purely because I can’t decide which ones to make.
They’ll be in metal … and I’m going to make them… but … I can’t choose between lizard shaped and plain round forged ones….
I’ll post more photos when I know more myself…
Time will tell…
