Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
Another year and another Fringe exhibit, this one being the last show at Urban Cow Studio before they move to new premises. I’ve been working on a tryptich from a bunch of odds and ends in the workshop.
Opens Monday night March 6th, wish me well ha ha 🎨👍🏻😃
A bit of prep work for a possible Fringe project this February involving a shipping container. I made some objects out of used cardboard for a diorama, and it felt like I was working on a miniature theatre set. A lot of fun to do 😃
Finally completed recently and looking very nice with a Scandinavian matt varnish finish. The lamp comes from the Port Adelaide National Railway Museum and complements the timber really well I think. The tricky bit was carrying this upstairs while not damaging it ha ha, one heavy piece! 😳😉😃
Some sketches for possible sculptures, murals, fabrics etc. Less to do with techniques such as shading or perspective and more to do with visual iconography, at times a tribute to Egyptian hieroglyphics. A lot of fun to do 😃
By a strange coincidence, I got given an old shed door in the same week I needed materials for a bed head. Perfect size for the project but this is getting heavier by the day 😃
Finished an office desk recently, which is part pallet part old dinner table. The pallet must be quite old considering the mixture of soft and hard woods, usually it’s all cheap pine. A clear matt finish brings out the natural colours nicely 😃
