Oh hey, that was a really good episode Tommy.
Greg's sideboard was awesome, that's fine work there. As nice as the overall shape and appearance are, and as nice as the veneer work is, especially the tambour doors, those carved legs are what probably impressed me the most. I'm sure it wasn't easy to retain the cylindrical shape of the leg as the material was removed to expose the grape vines.
It was also interesting to get a brief peek at Eli's commode. But when do we get to see the other side? You know the engineering side that shows how the thing is actually constructed?
I was surprised to see that apparently the legs aren't attached at the moment?, and I couldn't see any evidence of how they attached. And what was up with the Seymour type leg Tommy was swinging around? Hmmmm, questions and mysteries.
Way to go Tommy with the latest MLW episode.. now poor Rick won't be able to sleep for the foreseeable future!
I'm with you Rick, the new commode Eli is working looks pretty intriguing. I think he owes the forum an explanation and a bunch of pictures.. and a shot of the inside would be nice too.
That piece Greg made is outstanding.. if there were ever two 18th Century masters a woodworker would want to have inspire a new design it would be Samuel Mcintire and the Seymours. Well done, very tastefully done, from the brief photos it looks like a true masterpiece. Low relief carving is the bomb and really takes a piece to the next level.
Can't wait for the next installment of your show Tommy!
