I am happy to say that I have completed my most recent project…Finally! More challenging then anything I have previously done. The project took 70 hours to complete not including the roughly ten hours it took to figure out and build the bending forms. I am very happy with the end result. The client picks it up tomorrow and since I am not shipping this piece I will get her reaction first hand something I seldom get to experience. I have blogged most of the process minus the final push due to the deadline. Again, materials are quartered figured ash veneer and ash solids, white mosaic glass tiles, and Painted MDF wheels. The client provided the clear plastic insert and I also wove the basket that it sits in. Dimensions: 35”L x 21”w x 28 1/2”H. The client who is also a designer came up with the design borrowing heavily from Alvar Aalto.
Here are a few more detail shots.
And some shots of the jig I build to help aid in assembly and to transport
