default From tree to furniture by hand

Post by Chilli-head on 16th November 2011, 10:09 am

I stumbled across -> Adrian McCurdy's <- work in this month's Fine Woodworking magazine.  I love what he is doing;  splitting oak from where the tree fell through to beautifully organic furniture, using tools like wooden wedges and an adze.


I wish I could do that.

Mind you, there is that nagging thought in my mind that a flat, level tabletop makes it a lot easier not to spill your pint .,,  beer

I love the latticey bit underneath

Another rather beautiful bit of furniture caught my eye whilst I was searching for something else entirely; this time the work of Marvin Elliott on Arran. It's a table with a glass top, and a base carved from walnut. Amazing.
