Part 1: Segmented Abstract Model

11-13-2010 01:34 AM by darryl | 11 comments »

As some of you may know my younger brother, Sam, died from injuries in an auto accident recently. He was 30. I tried spending time in the woodshop only to find I couldn’t focus on anything. Just recently, I’ve been able to continue working on my current project. I still have some shaping to do on the inside of the top section and there is some sanding and finishing to be done as well. I’m quite pleased with how the project is coming along in general though. The dim...

Part 2: Segmented Abstract Model - Staining Day

I spent some time sanding and staining my Segmented Abstract Model today. This wasn’t my initial idea for a stain, but the first idea I had didn’t work how I wanted it to. I’m liking the look so far. comments and critiques always welcome.

I also need to make the pieces for the very bottom to fit inside the “foot” of the piece. But progress is definately being made! I’m really happy with how this piece is coming together so far. comments and critiques are always welcome

I glued up these little segmented candy dishes quite some time ago… now seemed like a good time to turn them. One of the things I wanted to do with these candy dishes was to make similar segmented patterns using two different sizes of segments… basically to give my self some reference on future designs. The first candy dish has 61 segments using 10 segments per ring The second candy dish has 121 segments using 20 segments per ring I’ve got both sanded dow...

Part 5: playing with color

09-05-2012 01:37 AM by darryl | 5 comments »

I’ve got a couple of segmented hollow vessels in the works right now. One that i’m working on I’m finishing in blue. I picked up a tube of the indigo Minwax Color Express a while back and thought I’d finially try it out. After a single coat of the indigo, I then applied six (I think) coats of tung oil to get the glossy look. I still need to finish turning this piece, but I figured I would do a little experimenting before I was really ready to apply the final fin...
