Ok so this project isn’t totally complete but i really wanted to share it on the completed projects tab because i wanted to share this project because i think it’s super cool.
you can read about how i’ve made the brick pattern and figure by following my lumberjock blog postings
the first three photos are how far I have gotten on this particular project. I hand chiseled that brick pattern, measuring each brick out to be consistent. i tried not to make it too perfect. the grout is maple dust and tight bond II.
i have been working on this project on and off since March/April and I hope to have it done in a month. the owner (who is depicted in the images) is an avid harmonica case collector. he has displayed his collection in local art museums and in Vermont.
the legs in these photos are not shaped but when they are the “shorter” leg is actually a bent leg, and will hopefully look that way.
The end piece will the name “HOFF” on it, hopefully it will look like graffiti (found some graffiti front online). He also has a mini harmonica that fits in his “mouth” but it is not in the photo.
bloodwood, maple (bricks)
blue pine, ebony, purpleheart, maple, cherry (harmonica player)
