While sampling this week I've been creating masses of shavings. Makes me think I need to find of a way of using all this waste for something (I don't have a wood-burner).
Coane+Co recently repaired a much treasured sculpture for Artist and Sculptor, Michael Green. He had knocked it of its plinth and it had cracked in a number of places, so I took up the challenge of fixing it for him.
Abstract in shape and carved from a single piece of cherry, it made for a very tricky repair requiring a custom support frame and a number of glue-jigs. The main break was also in the most structurally vulnerable area, splitting down the grain at the start of a cantilever.
In the end the repair was made and the Michael was very happy to have his favourite sculpture back in his studio.
