Adams Style Table.

Author: Виктория, May 7, 2019 в Uncategorized

It’s done!

The carved elements were gilted, the rest of the table is painted with acrylic gouache. Later during Chicago show I was lucky to speak to Robert Dawson, who suggested that inner parts of the table, a vase and the flowers were made of bronze. So I decided to make a new version of this table. With the real marble table top and cast bronze parts. But it’ll be a different color. I think that both table and marble top will be beige.

Adams style table

Author: Виктория, May 7, 2019 в Uncategorized

I’m a fan of on of the books on European furniture, almost every piece there is on my to-do list. This table happened to be the first one I actually made.
A bit of process below, I made several carved elements, all of them gone to my “virtual” trash bin. I wanted the carving to be more expressive.

French commodes. Part 2

Author: Виктория, May 7, 2019 в Uncategorized

I wrote about these commodes many months ago, I was hoping to be able to update my blog very often, but some commissions happened plus I was very busy for my Chicago show, so it’s my first time when I can finally get back to my blog.

These two commodes are, of course, are done. They went to Tom Bishop Chicago International show, one of them came back to Moscow.

Кровать в густавианском стиле.

Author: Виктория, December 15, 2016 в Uncategorized

Как и обещала, про кровать.
Наверное, один из моих самых любимых предметов будет. Потому что все просто и понятно – резьба, сборка, покраска. 🙂

У кровати такой нежный цвет слоновой кости, это матовый акрил. Я все собираюсь сделать видео на эту тему. Про покраску.

Заказчица, как говорится, не вредная попалась. И обивку я легко сделала, и матрас легко сшился. С обивкой была отдельная история. Когда я получила ткань, мне отчего-то показалось, что ткани катастрофически мало. Что на матрас не хватит, вот вообще. Стали с заказчицей думать, в итоге я предложила сделать типа чехол такой, который можно снимать. И я решила сделать его двусторонним, можно вывернуть и будет простыня. В итоге хватило ткани аж на три подушки 🙂 Хотя нужно было две.

Ну и видео вдогонку с демонстрацией 🙂 На ФБ и в Инстаграм видео подлиннее.

Густавианские стулья

Ну вот и закончен вроде один заказ, пока покажу стулья. Остальное потом, если все будет хорошо.

Такой вот долгострой не по моей вине. Напомню, что заказчица долго не высылала ткань, так что пришлось ждать. В итоге, материал мне понравился, хотя довольно сыпучий и ооочень тонкий. Боялась, что ткань придется проклеивать. Но именно со стульями не пришлось.

После обивки еще немного подпортила стулья патиной, которую по идее довольно легко можно убрать.

William and Mary dressing table – part 1.

Author: Виктория, March 2, 2016 в Uncategorized

I’ve been working on it since the beginning of the year, then I switched to making a workbench, and now I’m off the project for a week because of my daughter’s illness.
It was my first try using a lathe duplicator, and I’m quite pleased with the results.
But let’s start from the beginning. I start with cutting the legs, the turned part is bigger in diameter than the upper part. So I remove the waste with my router.

I’m in the process of making a video, but this time only photos. The workbench is covered with Danish Oil, nothing else.

Roubo workbench, part 2.

Author: Виктория, February 14, 2016 в WIP, WIP, WIP, WIP

In the first post I showed how I made the legs and the top. I’ll leave the vises for the assembly part. And now, I’m making shelves, there are two of them. The upper one is quite thing, made of a single sheet. I’m making a frame for it out of steamed pear wood, just for fun.

At first, shelf itself.

Then the frame. On the photo you can see how I’m making a mortise.

Roubo Workbench, part 1.

Author: Виктория, February 8, 2016 в Uncategorized

I never thought that I’d be making a workbench! I’m always searching for some new ways of presenting the work that I do. I’m just never happy with the photos that I make, almost. One day, going through a bunch of fantastic Instagram photos of different cabinetmakers, I realized that they are fabulous even when they showed WIP. Still a process, but such a beautiful one. And I thought – what do I have? Just a green cutting mat, a lamp, that’s it. Even my beautiful ginger cat would never fit in. :))) Nothing cute really. And I’m a fan of cute things! :)))

After all, I thought, why not a workbench? It would look like a real workshop. I knew nothing about workbenches, so I bought one of Christopher Schwartz books. And it was quite exciting reading!

I was so impressed that I decided to make a Roubo workbench, well, its modern version. You can find a lot of drawings on Internet, so I didn’t waste my time and picked one.

Let’s begin! I start with a top (we have two parts). You can see dovetail joinery on the sides of it. I used steamed pear wood for the contrast.

Tuscan Table.

Tuscan table with marquetry top

I wish I had two more days, just 16 hours of work, probably I’d be completely happy then. But, I have only three hours a day, and my kid is sick, so I finished it a bit earlier. Lots of photos below.
