    Latest Sketch

    Thought I'd share the latest drawing. I'm thinking about make some of these for Christmas gifts. I'll probably have to get a scroll saw though.

    I was intrigued by those as well and like the look of them. I couldn't come up with what modern folks would use it for and so didn't pursue. I'd love to hear some ideas of how these would be used in a modern household to convince myself to go ahead and make a few.

    I think it would be what a friend of mine calls, "a darling set around."

    FWIW I used the same method to draw the scroll work at the top as I demonstrated in my latest blog post on Design. Click. Build.

    Where did you get that nice maple texture, Dave? Good wood textures are definitely something I'm short of. It would be really nice to find some good tileable textures that do good job of representing wood - I'm not after fabulous photomicrographs of every detail of a particular plank but rather good sketches.
    So do I type something witty here?
