Re: Oak firewood owl3

Nice grain in your firewood Scott. Aside from the CNC machine, that makes it a pretty cheap hobby!

Re: Young Sleeping Angel in Maple

Gorgeous work again, Scott. Your patience is second only to the Queen's! But she has rather more to deal with.

So, price tag on this one, with all the work... $2-3K I'd guess. Looking forward to the next one.

Nice work as always, Scott. You work wonders with firewood. Whenever I deal with firewood it comes out like charcoal.

Re: Bridge-style violin stand

Thanks, Scott, the cats are ignoring it, which is odd, given how much they rub their faces on EVERYTHING! :twisted: Very stable. Jan is still very happy. However, already there are mods I'm planning to this design... once it's properly in use you see its deficiencies. Also working on the guitar stan...

Re: Bridge-style violin stand

I'm not sure how many musicians would even know what the 'bout' is. Upper, lower... between all the instruments we have in the house there must be 10 bouts :D I had considered using the bout shape for a guitar stand but will probably stick with the bridge shape for now.

Re: Bridge-style violin stand

Thanks, Joe. I appreciate the feedback. Frankly, I didn't know it was a Kun Bravo as we bought it used.

As this is intended to be a commercial product, I can't share the design at this time. The plan is to have a range of stands, in this style, for different stringed instruments.

Cheers

Re: Bridge-style violin stand

Thanks. I like the electric violin on it because it allows the stand to be shown off.

Bridge-style violin stand

Made from designer birch plywood, stained with a Jarrah decking oil and sealed with wipe-on poly. All cut from an approximately 19x18" board. The shape is inspired by the bridge of a double base. Weeks of consultation with a violinist (my wife) went into the design. Many iterations in MDF before arr...

Re: 1st model

Scott just advised me that the heron is local. He has so much wildlife I thought it was one of his! Everyone should have a tame heron in the back yard.

"2nd model on the machine now with a duck."
Hope that duck is being careful of the bit. Come on, it was begging to be said :D

Very nice job, Phill. Scott regularly sends me photos of his critters. You've done a nice job of modelling them.

Re: Wet Birch Wolves (3D wet branch)

I don't see any buds sprouting on that last picture, Scott. :wink:

Great work, as always. Just fascinating to see what you get up to. Usually something left of centre. You teach me something every time.

Re: Maple Burl as urn, topped with Birdseye Mountain

Rest up, Scott. We have all the patience in the world... maybe that's not what I say in private :D

It's looking terrific. Can't wait to see the finished product. As always, fine, artistic work from you, Scott.
