Regional Furniture Society 2014, gouge work

The Regional Furniture Society’s 2014 journal arrived a few days ago, and I must say it’s an excellent read!

SAMSUNG CSCSorry, not breaking copyright, you’ll have to join – worth it just for this journal alone.  There is an American secretary too.

I’ve just read a really well researched and presented article about a press cupboard made in the Lake District.  It includes a detailed analysis of the carving by chisel type.  Brilliant.  I think it would be a good discipline to analise carving in this fashion as background to my 17th century-style carving (And lots more practice. – Ed.).

New logo for the Landy:

Pegged the seat on my littel riven oak crickit today without splitting either the top or any of the three legs.


Sorry about the photo’fex – it was late and gloomy and the shot was out of focus. More to follow once finally completed.

Ready for next week’s …

It’s a bat – I don’t need batteries for my crickit.
