Table Lamp

in oak, a table lamp for this months challenge. Stands about a foot tall, without the shade and involved a lot of trigonometry, clever mathmatics, cunning drilling and most of all luck!

Supported Bowl

This months challenge was to create a supported bowl, that is a bowl that has some means of preventing the bottom of the bowl from touching the surface beneath it.

This is my interpretation and execution. Turned from Palo Santo, base from Cocobolo and supports from aluminium rod. It is beautifully tactile even if I do say so myself. The bowl can be sat upright or placed at rest on the support legs dependant on your preferences.

Chess Pieces

This was a challenge. Matching chess pieces. I tried Bishops first but a slight slip meant one of them lost his collar, so then tried a couple of rooks. Not quite identical but seeing as they sit at opposite sides of the board they’re great for a first go 🙂

The ‘whites’ are made from boxwood and the ‘blacks’ from bubinga, in the classic ‘Staunton’ stylee.

An experiment in colour matching

Made as a gift for someone to go in the glove-box of their cherished Rover 75 and to match the existing walnut dashboard.

Close enough 🙂
