Male stool for Ladies

“Kiss my Ass” by Silas Kopf

 

I read somewhere that the real master to not copy the work of other masters, but instead steals the ideas.

I stole the idea of making this tabouret from grate marquetry master Silas Kopf who made a chair “Kiss My Ass”.

I do not have that much patience to make such detailed work, but I wanted to make my version, so I make a simplified stool “Lick Me”.

I’m not an artist, I’ve never been able to draw (these two sketches are not made by me).
That’s why the starting took a lot of time, I asked workmate to draw a sketch for me.
But I did not like these versions, then I took a mirror and I was a model for myself.
And that’s what I came up with:

Here are some pictures of the making process:

And here is the finished product:

Tabouret -“ Lick Me ”

Tabouret “ Lick Me ”

Because of this stool is designed for women and I was the model for it, it is of course a male stool.
And that’s why it just had to have something between the two legs.

Two wooden blotch wall hangings

Posted By on December 23, 2010

I have ugly brick wall on my workplace that I stare every day, so I decided to decorate it a bit.
These are made of pine that I got from a glass containers.

I’m not happy with the result, I wanted something bigger, and something that resembled more of the melted timber.
But okay, I probably have to do more of these.
Besides, I think the wall looks much prettier already.

Most importantly, they are attached by a single screw, so I can turn them every day to a new position, and have every day a new view.

Wooden clothes rack/shelf “ Splash ”

Posted By on November 16, 2010

My daily work is glazing doors and windows.
Luckily, I have an agreement whit my boss that I can keep lumber from glass containers and sometimes its valuable timber indeed.
For example, this shipment:

klaasikasdid

Because it is raw lumber , then a few boards crooked in the drying process.

toorikud

But this does not mean that they can not be used.
You just need to be imaginative and use this curvature to your advantage.

Here are two pictures of the gluing process:

Update on my crest stem

Posted By on April 3, 2010

I sacrificed my lunch to do some more operations on my new crest stem.
Since this was my first time to make handcut dovetails, I make an error on first marking, I was rushing and not thinking clearly.

wrong dovetail

wrongly marked dovetail

correct dovetail

properly marked dovetail

And now after the dovetail was cut and joined ( unfortunately, I do not have the right tools , that is why it is not too nicely done ).

And now , if You interested , how the cross dovetail was made , here is a picture which explains it:

Start of a one more crest stem

Posted By on March 24, 2010

Today I went to work one hour earlier and used half of the lunch to start a new crest stem.
Some of the wood blanks I had already selected earlier. It takes a lot of time to choose from pile of scraps whits particular piece of wood to use .

So , here are all pieces ready for glue up:

And here are the blank glued:

And here the blank when glue was dry:

I used 10mm sticks to make waves, however, the effect would have been better if I used at least 15mm sticks, next time I will.

Mop handle with a twist

Posted By on March 20, 2010

I have long been fed up with these broom stem breakages , so I decided to make one unbreakable mop stick by myself.
I have a lot of wood and veneer scraps, so I picked some:

When I made the gluing , I thought that I shall give it a little twist:
blank of mop handle

After that I used several different hand and power tools to get the billet rounded.
And then a lot of sanding on lathe:

And finally here it is, a really strong mop handle with a twist :

Woodwork humour

Posted By on March 4, 2010

You know you’re a woodworker if/when:

1. You know the wood species of each of the splinters in your hands.

2. You line up your splinters after removing them from your hands and try to identify them.

3. when driving the wife wants you to look at a nice house and all you see is the trees around it.

4. You cut a huge gash in your thumb with a chisel and instead of being concerned about the blood spilling from the wound, you’re proud that you honed the chisel to razor-sharp. At least the cut will heal faster!

5. You dream about tools, sometimes even daydream.
