Woodworking Workshop Wednesday – Project #3: the Walnut Shaker Foot Stool.

This was a small project, compare to the last 2 (Chair & Table) but intense as it was 2 full days and a lot more precise with less room for errors.

The masterpiece,
The signature of the masterpiece
The details: the planned and unplanned ones,
And as usual the picture of all involved even thought it was mainly Liuyang and I.

Monday Murals – Ernest Zacharevic’s Window.

This is a tiny one easy to miss.
It’s on the same as the previous ones and you usually wonder from afar why people are taking picture of the white wall until you come close 😉

Here comes the rain
Do do do do
Here comes the rain

It’s alright it’ll be cooler

That’s probably what the Beatles would have sung if they had lived in Singapore 😂

Woodworking Workshop Wednesday – Project 3

And sometimes you hit the mallet a bit too strong and it slips the wood. Oops! Well when you have a very skilled teacher, he repaired that in a pinch and it actually gives your stool a little Je Ne Sais Quoi 😉

PS: I was his last student as he decided to concentrate on his own business (making high-end wooden furniture fully by hand, no machinery) after this class… but it wasn’t my fault, it was a planned departure!!
