Visitors and a sale

Sold the Bridgwater box today.

Several visitors, lots of interest and a possible commission for a storytelling chair.

I have been working on the layout for the chest with drawer front. As it is going to be all new repeating patterns, I have mocked it up in pencil, at the same time as trying to work out how to layout the new designs with the traditional method of compasses and centrelines. It's all new ground and I have no historical carving to copy. Exciting stuff. To me, anyway!

I have been knocking up some boards for the chest bottom and drawer bottom. A pleasing sight in the late afternoon sunshine.


  1. Wish I could pop in and have a look! Looks great. Well done for selling a box.

  2. Cheers Terence. I'll still be here, next time you're passing!

  3. I like the idea of using your stack of lumber as a display table.
    It looks spot on combined with the beautiful stone wall behind it.

  4. Cheers Jonas. Initially, I used it "because it was there", but it has been useful this week to explain the differences between flatsawn and riven timber. Especially to visitors with no woodworking knowledge.
