Thorsen House #2: The details are a little rustic

04-19-2007 09:37 PM by dennis mitchell | 17 comments »

The photos aren’t the best, but here is my update on the Greene and Greene table. Yes I went rustic. I got thinking (think…think…think) and I became interested in translating some of the details to a rustic style. I have a very old cheap band saw so I’ve not done much re-sawing. I’ve never done a breadboard end. Notice I book matched the top. I’m using pine from an old corral and a few pine branches from my firewood pile for the legs. The pegs are well drie...

this artisan house #3: two more for the kitchen

I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles!

this artisan house #1: artisan household

12-30-2006 07:13 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

Back in my lumberjocks interview, I mentioned one of my lifelong goals was to fill the house with useful items made by myself, as well as other artists and artisans. (while paring down all the cheaply made, hand-me-down, and mass manufactured items) Here’s a quick first look at how things have been shaping up over the past several years. My wifes cousin, Tim made these pottery bowls as a wedding gift, even stamped them with his own chop (signature) before firing and glazing. T...
