well, ok ... i stumbled across a folder full of pictures this morning and
i thought they would make a good blog post. as an example, on the 'page' above, there is a
10' cherry table, 8 windsors, 4 stools and a nine foot wide by 8 foot high sideboard. couple of months right there. also, a pair of maple cabinets with c.r. ashbee inspired inlays and a 60" round table ...
another couple of months there.
until 2007, when i first started my blog and more or less moved my 'portfolio' online,
i kept photos of my work in these three 20 page, 14" x 17" binders. in august of 2014, i intended to migrate these portfolios into my slide show area by taking careful photos of each page but never finished the job or ever finished taking the photos .. looking through them this morning made
me realize i maybe ought to get on it and finish that project ... maybe next week ...
anyway, here they are .. click the photos to enlarge them ...
honestly, i forgot i made a lot of these pieces ...
