I quit my job Yep, finally did it! Last month I quit my job, ready to start furniture school at @watersandacland up in Cumbria. Starting again at this point still feels shit scary, but in a really good way. Can039;t wait to get started!
Not so neat, but functional Turns out that stowing all of your hand tools in one box isn039;t that great an idea, loaded up this thing weighs about 50 kilos 💪💦
Chisels safe and sound Noting fancy in the design of the roll, but there039;s something satisfying in having everything fit perfectly
Another quick project this week, a tool box for my hand tools. Based on the design illustrated in Odate039;s book, but made from spruce ply as that039;s what I had lying around. Weighs a bloody tonne loaded up, but means I can cart things around safely now! The lid mechanism is dead neat too. Pretty rough and ready, but didn039;t have much time to spend making it pretty - whatever works!
Our week in Wales was nice Here039;s some videos of rocks and also a seal 🦭
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Another pair of trays/tidies. If you039;ve been watching the videos I made last week then you039;ve seen these before (if not, go watch them now to see some of the process!) Slightly more traditional shape to these than the blocky designs I039;ve made recently, and I really like them. Hand carved texture to the top and the underside, bevel shaped with kanna. The black finish is made by scorching the timber with a blowtorch after shaping.
Are you photo number 1 or 2? I039;m probably a 2 aspiring to be a 1 💩
