Looking back at 2012

It’s been a long old year here at Antick. It all started with a new customer Mr. G—, an interesting fellow who likes to turn discarded lumber into unusual antiques. This is the first piece, a tall case clock made of old pine book shelves. He then paints or otherwise finishes them himself.

Reproducing a reproduction, again using reclaimed lumber, and a riff on the same form.DSC09635

I also made a new stick for a cane, it’s ebony carved to resemble blackthorn.

I’ve already posted about this double sided bookcase. Then I made tables in cherry and curly maple.

This is an architectural model that is also a box, it’s a very cool design and was the first time I have cut a dovetail in plexiglass!

This is a bathroom vanity made of white oak in an old english Elizabethan style. It is almost eleven feet long.

It will be stained quite dark. I love the rhythm of the scrolled cuts at the base and the many levels of mouldings and carving of the facade.

We are wishing for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year for us all.
