KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

This week I rented a telephoto zoom lens (Fuji 100-400) and took a bunch of wildlife shots. Here is a collection of nine that I really like. There are lots of herons!

Photo of hikers headed through a barren lava landscape toward the glaciers on Mount Adams. When taking the photo I was disappointed that the (previously) clear sky had become cloudy…..looking at the outcome of the photo, I think the clouds add drama to the scene.

In need of a bedside table, but a bedside table for a VERY small space, I built this little table to use as a nightstand. Eventually, I see this being used as more of a plant stand.

The top and stringers are curly maple. It is constructed with mortise and tenon joinery.

This is why it is so small. Only about 8 inches between the door and the bed.

KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

Only half of a project this week for KAPOW. This is the bottom half of a piano stool. The top half—the seat part—will be complete soon…..

The intention with this stool was to use the wood bits from this derelict old banker’s chair (picture below). The old chair’s base mechanism had too many broken and missing pieces to make repairs worthwhile. It really was not all that well constructed.

The new stool uses the legs from the base of the old chair (turned vertical). I will use more bits for the sitting part of the stool. For the cylinder/stem of the stool, I used some scrap oak—glued together and turned on the lathe. Then I carved some dados for the leg pieces. See some pictures below.

A first take at a leather sleeve/case for my iPad. I really like the leather, but I consider this a prototype. There are some things I can do better. Onward to a version 2.
