Large box collaboration with a local artistI met an artist at a show. He is working on a masters degree at SCAD and offered to commission a collaboration. A philosophical piece, large. We built a six foot by six foot piece for his “proletariat playground” thesis…with sliding dovetails: and interlocked half-lap joints at the intersection:then box jointed corners: for the main picture, I placed my shop stereo, my Escher, and miter gauge in heaven. The other is of it in his studio… with other pieces in the proletariat playground.
I have been saying I am going to build a shave horse for a few years now. Today was the day. I had some old oak lumber that was stored outdoors for a number of years, but was still pretty solid, so I figured it would work for what I wanted. Everything is glued and pinned with hardwood dowels.
