September 2019 Newsletter

WOW! It’s already September, and we haven’t sent out a newsletter since April, but don’t worry, we have been busy. So thank you for being patient and subscribing to my occasionally random newsletter about the goings-on in my studio.

Featured Creation
The Semi Elliptical Table

Half an oval table

This table was a fun one to design since it is half an oval. From the center of the arch to the back edge of the table, each segment had to be cut at a different length and angle to achieve the oval shape.

The top was silver leafed, and a patina was added with sulfur potash to add some contrasting colors and wild movement in the top.

The legs are tapered with an oval shape from top to foot, which I achieved using a spokeshave to feather in the final form by hand.

Colorado Springs, CO 80908This show is hosted by the Black Forest Art and Crafts Guild, a portion of the proceeds goes to a college scholarship fund which is awarded annually to a local graduating high school senior.

I will not have any furniture in this show, but it will feature my scrap wood projects. I gather up all the scrap wood left over from my furniture projects and build cribbage boards, cutting boards, boxes, and whatever else I can think of. It has been a great way to clean up the shop and raise some money to fund other art projects, as well as help send a young mind to collage.
