some recent work

In between rounds on the cupboard I have got some other joined and carved things done. And now with the cleaned sensor on my camera, photographing them is a treat.

carved box, butternut & oak

This one is a box that is headed tomorrow to New Hampshire as part of an exhibit/gallery show at The Two Villages Art Society called “Into the Woods” a new venture for me. Dave Fisher, Kenneth Kortemeier, Dan Dustin and many others have submitted pieces as well. Worth a look if you’re in the area, opens Sept 17.

A couple of joined stools for a patient customer –

The other – he asked for two stools that didn’t have to be a pair. Good thing…

This box you’ve seen here before, I shot a video of carving its front. Now it’s done & delivered. It was a retirement gift for a curator I’ve known for eons – Dean Lahikainen at Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. It’s based on a box in their collection.

That box and the tops of the two joined stools finished off my stash of quartersawn oak. So today I ventured out into the world to get some more. Thanks to Rick for letting me be so picky. Sunday is white pine day for the same reason – my larder is empty. I guess Monday is stacking & stickering day. Then it’s back to the cupboard full-time. Assembly is on the horizon.

  1. Oh wow Peter It looks like Christmas over their somebody blessed you, does this mean were not gonna hear or see posts from you for a bit? I know Id be in shaving and saw dust heaven. Enjoy that beautiful 1/4 saw can’t wait to watch it emerge into boxes/cupboards and chests!

  2. How do you handle wood storage? Are the stickered and stacked outside? Covered? As always it’s great following your work on the blog!

  3. Hi Peter, the link doesn’t work, at least for me, because the link stops at ‘w’ and the ‘oods’ is not part of the link.

  4. Hi Peter! Pete and I are splitting up that giant oak he got. I guess I don’t know the exact number of posts I should make. I know you have some so how many more shall I make and bend? Equal number of front posts? I have asked everyone I know about obtaining a maple log but no one seems to have one available. I’ll keep looking unless you’ve found one there. Hope all is well and that your tie dye fits!
