Andrew asked me to post how to instruction for my desk that I built. I’ll do that soon. I just helped my wife build one for her studio and it came out great. Wood working is one place where I waste a lot time. I’ve built a lot of desks but this is the craziest thing I ever built.
One of my first studios was a stadium sized space in NYC that I shared with another artist. One of his hobbies is building instruments. He guided me through my first ukulele. This piece is all hand bent and carved out of rosewood, with a mahogany top and an ebony fret board. The only thing I didn’t make was the tuning machines. All the other hardware I carved out of wax and had cast in silver. All the inlay is mother of pearl. Took me a year. It was a lot fun, but difficult.
Anyone else? We’d love to see Clinkers’ extracurricular work.
