Frank Lloyd Wright Contest #1: The Rules

766 days ago by JoeyG | 34 comments »

I would like to start a friendly competition based on the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. The rules are pretty basic and I have tried to make them so that anyone can enter no matter what your woodworking style is. 1) The piece must be based on a work or works of Frank Lloyd Wright. 2) The piece must be a box or vessel. Basically it must be able to hold something inside it. 3) Any woodwork technique can be used as long as it fits in with the other rules. 4) Any materials can...

Thorsen Table contest #4: what so many legs you have

2635 days ago by scottb | 16 comments »

Had a slight mishap today when I went to mill the legs down so they'd be the proper width after applying a "veneer" edge, I accidentally cut all the pieces!
