Desk base layout

24 Feb

I took a couple of shots of the walnut boards that Earl has laid out in his shop to make the base of the Dimidiated Orbicular Desk. Some of my favorite times in Earl’s shop are when I go out and see the elaborate process of him building his furniture — for example these boards, the paper template taped underneath them, his chalk, pencils, level, scissors, the chalk notes on the boards — all that stuff. It’s an artistic profession but also time consuming and mathematically difficult as evidenced in the work that goes into each piece.
