Funny how things work. I shot my 2nd DVD with Lie-Nielsen last winter, then in March started talking to Chris Schwarz about publishing the joint stool book. http://lostartpress.wordpress.com/2011/09/17/coming-soon-%E2%80%98make-a-joined-stool-from-a-tree%E2%80%99/
So the book really took over my thoughts, and I almost plumb forgot about the video on carving…almost.
But it’s now out, and I hope folks will like it. In it, I concentrate on just one motif, the S-scroll. I have used this pattern so many times in a great variety of ways, that I felt it was worth exploring a whole disc with just that design.
You’ll see how I lay out the patterns, sometimes with a compass, sometimes just freehand with the gouges. Often a combination of those methods. After cutting a few variations, then I show how to combine them to make panels like those found in chests and boxes. When I was outlining this project, I counted ten variations on the S-scroll in my house!
It’s 100 minutes; and there are some things on the disc to view on a computer; finished carvings, a few period examples that I have studied closely, and some layout diagrams.
To order, you can either go to Lie-Nielsen https://www.lie-nielsen.com/index.php or order it from me. For now, I haven’t updated my website, so no Paypal at this point. If I keep on selling them, then I’ll fix up the website. Thus, I plan on doing this the old-fashioned way. If you’d like to order from me, put a check in the mail.
Here’s the details:
