KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

A more polished version of the leather tray I have been iterating on. I created a mold out of plywood and wet-molded two pieces of leather into shape. I included a bottom liner of some patterned cork fabric and hand-stitched around the edge.

I made a external disc drive case out of some old jeans pocket and leather. It is interesting….but there was a measuring error. When the drives are in the case it does not close!

I have been going through a bunch of my old photos. I found an old out of focus photo of a coyote(?) [see original photo at the bottom]. Maybe out of focus is not the right description. The photo looks almost like a multiple exposure blur of coyote, tree, and snow. I added some embellishments and highlights to make the photo…..better?

Biggest Little Bowl

Biggest Little Bowl
KAPOW 2022 Week 3WoodworkingJanuary 23, 2022
KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

Is it a bowl or a dish? A really abstract bowl? A non-useful dish? Utilitarian? Or simply (only) artistic? Whatever it is, it is….it came out quite beautiful.

The main body of the bowl is quilted maple with three different hardwood stripes (inlays). The darkest stripe is walnut, the middle one is (I think) makore…..the other lighter brown one—I am not sure what that is (the local lumber store offers grab bags of cut-offs and I don’t know what some of them are).

The bowl part was hand carved (with a lot! of sanding). It is seven inches square and a bit less than two inches tall.
