Кровать в густавианском стиле.

Author: Виктория, December 15, 2016 в Commissions, Furniture

Как и обещала, про кровать.
Наверное, один из моих самых любимых предметов будет. Потому что все просто и понятно – резьба, сборка, покраска. :)

У кровати такой нежный цвет слоновой кости, это матовый акрил. Я все собираюсь сделать видео на эту тему. Про покраску.

Заказчица, как говорится, не вредная попалась. И обивку я легко сделала, и матрас легко сшился. С обивкой была отдельная история. Когда я получила ткань, мне отчего-то показалось, что ткани катастрофически мало. Что на матрас не хватит, вот вообще. Стали с заказчицей думать, в итоге я предложила сделать типа чехол такой, который можно снимать. И я решила сделать его двусторонним, можно вывернуть и будет простыня. В итоге хватило ткани аж на три подушки :) Хотя нужно было две.

Ну и видео вдогонку с демонстрацией :) На ФБ и в Инстаграм видео подлиннее.

Густавианские стулья

Author: Виктория, December 2, 2016 в Commissions, Furniture

Ну вот и закончен вроде один заказ, пока покажу стулья. Остальное потом, если все будет хорошо.

Такой вот долгострой не по моей вине. Напомню, что заказчица долго не высылала ткань, так что пришлось ждать. В итоге, материал мне понравился, хотя довольно сыпучий и ооочень тонкий. Боялась, что ткань придется проклеивать. Но именно со стульями не пришлось.

После обивки еще немного подпортила стулья патиной, которую по идее довольно легко можно убрать.

William and Mary dressing table – part 1.

Author: Виктория, March 2, 2016 в Furniture, WIP

I’ve been working on it since the beginning of the year, then I switched to making a workbench, and now I’m off the project for a week because of my daughter’s illness.
It was my first try using a lathe duplicator, and I’m quite pleased with the results.
But let’s start from the beginning. I start with cutting the legs, the turned part is bigger in diameter than the upper part. So I remove the waste with my router.

Roubo workbench, part 2.

Author: Виктория, February 14, 2016 в WIP

In the first post I showed how I made the legs and the top. I’ll leave the vises for the assembly part. And now, I’m making shelves, there are two of them. The upper one is quite thing, made of a single sheet. I’m making a frame for it out of steamed pear wood, just for fun.

At first, shelf itself.

Then the frame. On the photo you can see how I’m making a mortise.

Roubo Workbench, part 1.

Author: Виктория, February 8, 2016 в WIP

I never thought that I’d be making a workbench! I’m always searching for some new ways of presenting the work that I do. I’m just never happy with the photos that I make, almost. One day, going through a bunch of fantastic Instagram photos of different cabinetmakers, I realized that they are fabulous even when they showed WIP. Still a process, but such a beautiful one. And I thought – what do I have? Just a green cutting mat, a lamp, that’s it. Even my beautiful ginger cat would never fit in. :))) Nothing cute really. And I’m a fan of cute things! :)))

After all, I thought, why not a workbench? It would look like a real workshop. I knew nothing about workbenches, so I bought one of Christopher Schwartz books. And it was quite exciting reading!

I was so impressed that I decided to make a Roubo workbench, well, its modern version. You can find a lot of drawings on Internet, so I didn’t waste my time and picked one.

Let’s begin! I start with a top (we have two parts). You can see dovetail joinery on the sides of it. I used steamed pear wood for the contrast.

Tuscan Table.

Tuscan table with marquetry top

I wish I had two more days, just 16 hours of work, probably I’d be completely happy then. But, I have only three hours a day, and my kid is sick, so I finished it a bit earlier. Lots of photos below.

Carving and needlepoint

Author: Виктория, March 18, 2015 в Furniture, Miniature Needlepoint, WIP

I finished marquetry panels and started carving central door ornaments.  Last time I made my own pear plywood – and what was I thinking? Especially with boxwood veneer I had. This time I decided to use boxwood. And I love it! It’s such a great wood, no excuses .  I hope to finish carving tomorrow and then I’ll stain it and glue to the door. I’m quite happy with the details I’ve got now, hope that result will be even better.

As for something different – I got this beautiful pattern from  Nicola Mascall , when I saw it on Facebook I fell in love with this carpet, the colors are magnificent! I promised to myself earlier that I’d never do needlework again, I wanted to work on my bobbin lace mats, but with my baby girl it is quite difficult, she love the bobbins too much. I guess I’ll wait till she grows up a bit. Besides, this beautiful carpet, OMG! I couldn’t help myself!  This is my first time stitching with Madeira, quite happy about the result and the back is not bad either! :)

Wardrobe – moldings and frame

Author: Виктория, February 9, 2015 в Furniture, WIP

There was a lot of work recently, I’m still enjoying the process of building my new art nouveau wardrobe. Lots of things were changed since the last version of it, this time I decided not to use veneered wood, this time the pear was stained, it has a very deep color of purple heart wood.  Just like the original piece. The only drawback is that becayse it’s very dark every touch with my fingers left these sawdust spots. Anyway, there’s nothing I can do till the finishing process.
