The Pipe Chest
Inspired by an old wooden tool chest, this pipe rack was commissioned for the customer’s workshop. Made of red oak, lined with green felt, buffed with tung oil, The Pipe Chest holds twelve pipes and has space for plenty of tobacco tins and small mason jars.
This is just a thing of beauty. Well done.
I need this in my life.
No but really.
Edward Mordrake was a 19th century English nobleman who had an extra face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23 by poisoning himself because he could no longer stand having to live with the face on the back of his head.
And this one is still underway! Building it up quite a bit, also. There is a quote from Monet that really struck me: “I am more than ever disgusted at things that come easily, at first attempt.” I can’t get that out of my mind; it resonates with me so deeply. And Rouault, he is one worth reflecting on, as well. Keep ya posted on my progress!
I love hank.Source: theshadysketchbook
