H iScott!
I just saw your kind comment on my piece, “Majesty”, and wanted to thank you, and to answer your questions, too.

This was a collaborative piece with my colleague and mentor, Spider Johnson. We had a collective 400 hours in this piece. As far as effort level- whew! Since it was the first time either of us had tried the Fusion method, there was a sizable learning curve to get through. BUT, I have to say, it was fun and rewarding, too- every time one of us would have an “aha!” moment, or have a great result in an area, it was SO exhilarating! And the overall effect was just fabulous. We were actually blown away when it surpassed even our own expectation. Of course, we used some crazy-beautiful burls, so how can you lose?

Thanks again for your interest in the work!
All the best,
Cindy

400 Hours. Wow. Just wow.

Yeah, I find the learning curve interesting. I just completed a dining table; my most complicated – for me – build as yet. Probably took 80 hours if I had worked on it straight though. At least 10 – 15 of them were due to either practicing new skills, (drawbore, stub tenons), maybe 5 – 10 just building jigs, and another 10 just going slowly.

If I had to do it again? Probably less than half the time.

In any case, amazing stuff.

Have your say...
