i really like the goblet gerry, and i think the slight distortion just makes it a bit quirky and gives it character, you say you live on lairded land what region do you live in?

Thread: Princess Beatrice Royal Wedding Fascinator Chair

all i can say is wow! woodbridge (can i call you woody) that is a lovely piece of work, was the back piece made from a single piece of wood? you have achieved an amazing finish, the whole thing almost looks moulded, when i first saw that hat i printed a picture for my inspiration folder because i thought that it would make a lovely frame for a mirror, a chair back didnt even occur to me, as a matter of interest, where did you source your walnut for your maloof chair? i have been trying to source some nice walnut for a project of my own but have not been having much luck so far,
Thread: trying to identify a wood
12/09/2011 01:32:29
hi guys, a friend of mine was recently clearing his deceased fathers shed out and came across a piece of wood that neither he or myself can identify, i am hoping to add a foto at some point but for now all i can do is describe it, henrys dad said it came from africa it has a dense interlocking grain and no discernable sapwood, the most startling thing about it is the colour, it is a lovely mid to dark green, henrys dad used to make a lot of musical instrument parts, (chanters and clarinets etc) so it may be a wood specific to that kind of manufacturing, i have only seen a green piece of timber once before and that was a strange piece of mahogany that i never saw again, so does anyone have any ideas? i want to find out about it as i want to give henry a fair price for it.

Thread: my first attempt at carving.
12/08/2011 19:26:14

Thread: Dumper truck
05/08/2011 02:55:59
beautiful piece of work, makes me think longingly of my childhood tonka toys
Thread: What are good starting tools?
03/08/2011 16:56:49
this is the first time i have heard of bench dogs and it has decided me that when i make the new shed i will include a bench with vices on the ends instead of my current built in style, they seem like a jolly clever idea, although with my carving pieces right now i have some random one inch holes in my work surface that i put oak dowels in so i can push the piece up against when working with the chisel so it doesn't skitter away when you smack it
Thread: House Nameplate
03/08/2011 09:56:58

that is a cracking piece of work paul, i think the proportions are lovely, does it need to be fixed to the wall or will it be freestanding? what kind of wood do you reckon it is? what kind of polish are you going to apply? hope you put up a finished pic
