Carving, lots of it!

Author: Виктория, August 8, 2014 в Uncategorized

Wow, I thought it would be much more difficult to make it work! This settee is quite a challenge. The back is very interesting, so I had to figure out the workflow for it. Despite using 3d software I still needed to rely on my own measuring skills.

Now the fun part began – carving, lots and lots of it! I “finished” 2 parts, another 2 on the way. I hope that the next week will be all about upholstery, fingers crossed!

It’s good to be back after such a long break!

It’s another commission for me. Quite complicated piece of furniture, but I hope to get through it. I’ll be using pear wood again, not steamed but I’d say “smoked” pear, it had a beautiful chocolate brown color. Btw, not cheap at all, but I like it even more than steamed one.

I started from the lower part of the settee, main frame and cabriole legs, lots of carving there!

Art Nouveau Side Cabinets.

Author: Виктория, April 10, 2014 в Uncategorized

Well, it’s finally time to make side cabinets for my art nouveau sofa. 🙂 Here it is:

I don’t even remember why I didn’t make them, I started making carved panels, they are somewhere, in one of five huge boxes with scrap wood, hehe. I won’t waste my time on looking for them. It’s much easier to make new ones. Besides I had a very rough sketch in Google Sketchup, so I made a new one in Rhino. So far so good, I found quite good mahogany strips, though I still need to make lots of veneer, 2mm.

Art nouveau bed is finished. I really like the result. It looks quite old, just what I wanted to achieve with staining pearwood.

Bed – WIP

Bed - WIP

I started making a bed, you can see some carving in progress on the photo above.  And I think I’ll make a chair for the dresser I made earlier, both would look great together.  But it will be after the bed and couple of bedside tables. I’m using pearwood again, it’s very light in color as you can see, so it’ll need some staining too.

And my new addition – this Proxxon sander, they have a bigger model but I decided on this smaller one. Suits my needs perfectly.

I’d make some jigs for it, but don’t have time for it at all, to be honest. Well, back to work! Have a nice day!

Chess figures. Knights.

Couple days ago, something terrible happened, my container with chess figures fell down from table, it was open. So couple of figures were lost for good. I had to make some of them again.

Three knights for now, don’t need more for the roombox.
