17th Century Carving, samples

One of the great things about this class was all the samples Peter Follansbee brought with him. He encouraged all of us to take as many photos as we wanted, so…I obliged. I used my Ashahi SMC macro on some, my Meyer-Optik Gorliz Pentacon wide-angle on others, all taken with my Pentax K-5 IIs DSLR.

17th Century-style Carving, a few shots, day 2

I’m pretty whipped from a fun-filled weekend. I took tomorrow off from work, so I’ll probably post more detail then. But for now a few pictures of my final project for the class, which I will also hopefully finish tomorrow while everything is fresh in my mind.

First panel, with the original above.  I hope to paint it similar.

Two panels done, plus a hint of the border of the bottom I decided on.  A fairly simple border, our first practice exercise.

17th Century Carving, day 1

We did a lot of practice, as you might expect, on some very nicely prepared, air-dried red oak. Gouge work, V-parting tool, and lots of whack whack whack with the mallets.

I shot a roll of self-rolled film, where I used some crappy tape to hold the film to the spool. Went to rewind and *whirl* a whole lot of nothin. I’ll bring my digital tomorrow. I did get some nice shots with another camera, but I won’t send those off for developing till Monday.

I had one shot with my iPhone. Yeah iPhone.
