Carving and needlepoint

Author: Виктория, March 18, 2015 в Miniature Needlepoint

I finished marquetry panels and started carving central door ornaments.  Last time I made my own pear plywood – and what was I thinking? Especially with boxwood veneer I had. This time I decided to use boxwood. And I love it! It’s such a great wood, no excuses .  I hope to finish carving tomorrow and then I’ll stain it and glue to the door. I’m quite happy with the details I’ve got now, hope that result will be even better.

As for something different – I got this beautiful pattern from  Nicola Mascall , when I saw it on Facebook I fell in love with this carpet, the colors are magnificent! I promised to myself earlier that I’d never do needlework again, I wanted to work on my bobbin lace mats, but with my baby girl it is quite difficult, she love the bobbins too much. I guess I’ll wait till she grows up a bit. Besides, this beautiful carpet, OMG! I couldn’t help myself!  This is my first time stitching with Madeira, quite happy about the result and the back is not bad either! 🙂

Wardrobe – moldings and frame

Author: Виктория, February 9, 2015 в Uncategorized

There was a lot of work recently, I’m still enjoying the process of building my new art nouveau wardrobe. Lots of things were changed since the last version of it, this time I decided not to use veneered wood, this time the pear was stained, it has a very deep color of purple heart wood.  Just like the original piece. The only drawback is that becayse it’s very dark every touch with my fingers left these sawdust spots. Anyway, there’s nothing I can do till the finishing process.

French day bed

Well, it’s done! I wish I could make more, but the thing is I’m out of time and need to make other items too. I finished this day bed long-long time ago but the textile part took a lot of time, because I was sewing it while my daughter was sleeping 🙂 Then I ordered a cat and a dog…

Author: Виктория, January 19, 2015 в Uncategorized

These holidays were too long! I missed my tools and tablesaw:) Before them (damn, it was last year!) I started remaking marquetry wardrobe, which I didn’t even finish. I managed to cut side parts, today was a  lathe day!

Here’s the old version of the wardrobe:

Well, it’s finished! Pretty happy with it – though I had my troubles with hinges, which was a surprise for me.

Marquetry for music stand

Author: Виктория, December 19, 2014 в Uncategorized

I only needed one more hour today to finish the second panel for the door, almost half of it is done. So I’ll show only the first one for now. Well, I need to sand it, add couple more details, but overall it’s done.

Rococo Settee – WIP

Rococo Settee - WIP

Well, it’s almost done. Now I need to make an uphosltery. I covered the settee with paper so that it wouldn’t distract from the carving. Uphosltering should be fun – it’s very complicated form to me, but I’ll just have to do it. Carving itself was fun, though it was tricky sometimes to get all the parts together seamlessly.
