Where can I locate some?

I just saw some of Molesworth furniture on, of all places, The New Yankee Workshop. I thought it ironic that a great WESTERN artist got featured. Well, hats off to Norm!

Anyway, I woul like to incorporate some of Molesworth's drawings into and onto my projects. Maybe even my Thorson table…. Hmmmm

Anyway, I would be interested in finding any "cowboy" stuff in silhouette. Do you have any leads to find some?
Thanks,
Hawg

You can order the plans from Norm's website and I am sure the template for the artwork he used is in the plans. I also enjoyed the show, even if I disagreed with a few techniques he used, but who am I? He's Norm!

I think you could draw the artwork by free hand and save the money on the plans. Since they are routed out free hand, just draw something out and route your line. I have found lots of silouette template artwork by searching the internet for ideas. There are so many steel cutouts these days, that there are plenty of examples for sale out there to give you inspiration. I can say from experience though, you will most enjoy the process and the finished product if your artwork is your own. The Molesworth motif artwork is so simple, you could do it yourself.

post some photos if you get something in Molesworth finished.

You might try using the Google image search. I've found useful designs that way in the past.

I too watch Norm fairly regularly. I watched an old show over the weekend and spent quite a bit of time heckling. I can't remember exactly what now, but it was all technique and the "why use a hand tool when a power tool can do it" attitude.

Thanks for all the input. As for drawing my own…. I am lucky to draw astraight line using a ruler…LOL!

As for norm, I read an interview with him in Pop wood or some other woodworking magazine, and he said he grew up using hand tools, predominately. Sure can't tell that now, with power tool companys throwing samples at him to try. He sure knows how to use em, though!
I like using hand tools, too, but I spent a couple of hours getting a bow and warp out of a pice of oak planking, when I could have just used my jointer to get it done in around 10 or 15 minutes-including set-up. Power tools sure have their place, but it is very good to be well versed with hand tools! Plus… there is no better feeling than using a plane YOU sharpened and tuned up to get that piece of wood back in line!

I will try Google. I do leatherwork, too, so I could just use some leather patterns and make a silhouette from them.

Last Sept I went to the book release lecture of "Molesworth - the Pioneer of Western Design" given by the author Terry Winchell. The book is published by Gibbs Smith and is a great resource for design and history of Molesworth furniture. A clear influence in his design is the Arts and Crafts Movement.

You can check it out at a Barnes & Noble I am sure. I remember the author saying that he had just got done filming with Norm.

I couldn't believe there were only about 17 people at the lecture and most of them were docents of the Bradford Brinton Museum. What a great opportunity for good conversation with the author!

I tried Google, but it seems to offer way too much on coments of Molesworth, and not enough pictures…
As I said with Todd, C'est La Vie!

I have the book and I can vouch for the extensive collection of photos in it. I don't know what would have led you to believe it was short on pictures.

Cowboy Up!
