carving detail, brettstuhl Nov 2021

I’m still working away at the cupboard project. There just hasn’t been much significant progress to merit a blog post. Soon. Meanwhile, I finished a custom project, a desk box someone ordered as a present. So I can’t show you the front, there’s initials carved on it. After the holiday I’ll show the whole thing. Unless I forget.

$1.200 includes shipping in US

carved box, butternut

This carved box is made from butternut. It is one of maybe only two or three boxes I’ve made this year. Not a traditional wood for these boxes, but I love carving it. Has the great properties of walnut, but I can see what I’m doing as I work it.

There’s a till inside as usual.

Brand-new in the past week or two is this walnut (& hickory) brettstuhl. Maybe my most ambitious carving. I’m really enjoying making these chairs. Just the right combination of simple and complex. In the view below you can just see the ends of the battens under the seat, with the back’s tenons poking through them & wedged from behind. If you want to read more about them, here’s a post about assembling an earlier black walnut one https://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/2021/05/31/next-brettstuhl-assembled/

Another brettstuhl in butternut. This one’s from earlier in the year, the first brettstuhl I was really happy with.
