no previous part Part 1 of Creative Woodworking series Part 2: Whats your style? »

Hey guys – just thought I’d show you a little bit of my style/taste. This is the type of stuff I want to be able to build when I can finally afford awesome tools, have a shop, and TIME to do some creative woodworking!! Enjoy – and maybe it’ll give you some ideas of your own. (all pictures come from www.design-milk.com – which i am not affiliated with, or am I advertising….i just like the site)....






I better start practicing….............

Have you picked out your dream vacuum press? Looks like bent laminations is what floats your boat.
Look forward to seeing your dream projects turn into reality!

haha – I have not GaryL! :) i’m guessing i’m gonna need a BIG one though…haha..

yes, i love bent wood (whether laminated, or steam bent, or whatever…) – i love modern flow and curves in wood! and i love modern furniture (i love designing it – which right now is all i can do until i can get me a shop!!)

I’ve always wanted to try steam bending. One of these days I’ll get a steam pipe or box set up and give it a try. Any curves I’ve done have always been laminations.

same here BoiseJoe – it would be awesome to learn some of these techniques. A lot of the things I find, that i love, and would love to be able to build some day – i have NO IDEA how they do it!! most woodworking books, magazines, etc covers mostly older style woodworking – which is fine, but i would love to see some modern stuff!!

BoiseJoe…what is RISD? I assume it’s a school?
I agree on having some publications covering more of this type of woodworking. Expand the horizons.

Wow, some fantastic designs! I liked some and others not so much but all are unique! My favorite is the one just after the bench with all the people sitting on it.

Some very interesting pieces, most would definitely have made me look twice. I especially like the bench with the plant next to it, not sure exactly what about it though :P

It is often so difficult finding contemporary pieces and the instruction to make them.
These are beautiful!!

Very contemporary! Makes me think of Andy Warhol for some reason?
