One of the most used tools in the atelier: the mallet.
Last week we started a new series of courses with a new group of participants. Having learned the basics of design, measuring, and marking, the participants set out to saw and plane the first components of their pieces.
The end grain of quartersawn oak is particularly beautiful, showing an intriguing pattern of growth rings and rays. The difference with other species of wood is immediately visible in this serving board, composed of a variety of woods. Soon available in our shop.
This beautiful grain pattern and vivid colors belongs the honey locust, a tree that is native to North-America. However, this particular piece comes from a tree that once stood in Amsterdam and had to be cut down. It’s going to become a serving board. Soon available in our shop.
Part of that wonderful find of some time ago were also these gouges.
Geraamte is a medium-sized side table designed to adorn a modern living room or a spacious hallway. Its neat and airy frame design offers a distinctively minimalist sense and is so characteristic that we decided to simply call it like it is: geraamte is Dutch for frame.
Geraamte is a celebration of mortise and tenon joinery and in particular its wedged through-tenon variant. All frame components and even the ‘hanging’ shelf are attached to one another with this joint type, using maple wedges.
