Yes, handymen make art too! Take a look:
It's been a busy week, but all of my pictures were pretty boring. (Wanna see some photos of a moldy shower surround? I didn't think so.)
So instead I thought I"d show off this project from my archives. It's a chair I made from branches of pinon pine.
Look a little more closely at the joinery on this chair.
See how one branch flows into another as if it grew that way? That took hours to do. I cut a tenon on the end of the branch, then hand-carved the wood above the tenon to make an exact fit to the adjoining piece.
Here it is from the sides. The tractor seat is just set in place, so it could be replaced by a hand-woven seat.
I tried to use the curved legs to evoke the stance of an animal.
You can buy this for $1975, with free delivery within our service area, which is a great deal considering the time that went into it. It would be a marvelous sculptural addition to any artistic home. If you'd like to buy it, please email me using the contact form linked in the button below.
