I haven’t uploaded anything for a long time now. My laptop broke a few months back, lost some important files and just lost interest in uploading new works. If anything, I made more works and improved my craft when I limited myself to using the internet just 3hr a weeks.

Anyway, I had my first solo exhibit in the Philippines a few months back. I made about 20 unique furniture/sculpture pieces based on the book and characted of Alice and Wonderland. This particular pieces is the 4th version of the cervical chair I uploaded last time. Frog Footman was a minor characted in the story but he is the characted that had his head “off”. This one now targets the c3 section on the spine, I improved the lower back by carving it to have full contact on the latissimus dorsi of a 5’8 person. On the seat, I made the pelvic bone more comfortable on wood by carving a small pocket in the middle for the coccyx (tail bone). I then carved two more pockets just half an inch deep for the left and right ischium of our hip bone. Another addition is the matching footrest fit to support a persons calf muscles and heels. The materials I used is no different from my previous works made from reclaimed old wood.

Google Frog Footman if you want to see the photos of the character’s depiction.

Also, my first solo exhibit was a success with more than half of the pieces sold during te ingress period or the night before the opening. This cervical chair was the first one sold.

Thank you to those who continue to support my art. More and bigger things to come.

Sorry Jimbo, this is what happens when I upload from an iphone and not a laptop. I can’t seem to flip all of them in an upright position. =\

LOL!

Beautiful anyway you look at them! Maybe its the wood that surrounds the artists from the philipines to creat such wonder.

any way you post them I appreciate them.

Great that it’s not just other woodworkers who appreciate your artistry.

I understand about talking vs. Doing. LOL! I talk a lot. :)

This looks like quite a complex project! I for one, would LOVE to see a video of you working on your pieces.

Beautiful work as always!

I can appreciate your losing interest in posting. I find this to be very frustrating and time consuming and I would rather be working in the shop or just working on a design. Your knowledge and skill in both woodworking and human anatomy is amazing. Congratulations on your successful solo show. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Wonderful looking chair, and I can see why it sold so fast, once a person sat in that chair, and felt it fit them, it
would be hard to leave it. Thank you once again for sharing your skill with us.
