I dedicate this piece to CPLUSWoodworker (dedicate, I don’t mean to imply he inspired it) – he may be a C+ woodworker, but he’s an A+ human being, who helped me find a needle lost amidst a heap of sawdust.
Some pieces are a labour of love.
Some a labour of necessity.
Some are just for fun.
But this was a labour of obsession.
Once the not quite meeting triangles had got into my head, they simply wouldn’t let go. The also not quite meeting triangles on the top, that are parallel to the bottom box, sort of, and that overhang, and that point downwards, and don’t meet “properly”, popped into my head in the middle of the night – luckily (or not, depending on your view of this piece), pencil and paper were at hand to scrib the sketch.
I made 3 different handles for the top, before deciding to use none of them.
My wife’s comment – ”That’s just weird, really weird”.
Oh, and in case you were wondering – yes, there are more “Disturbias” on the drawing board.
Oak, ash, jatobá, 3 different kinds of unknown veneer (one under the top I didn’t take a picture of).
Linseed oil finish.
14cmx14cmx8cm plus lid.
