EDIT EDIT: A friend wanted one shaped like a boat. I love a good challenge. Took 3 tries to get the shape and height right. Just 1/8" Walnut - no glue. Finished with Beeswax.
EDIT: added additional pictures of a bowl that has a floating base. Just wanted to see if I could do it. not sure I even like it.
Had an idea to use some cord I have lying around. Used 1 board of medium walnut and about 12 yards of cord. Cut was fast, about 15 mins. Stringing took about a half hour. Have about 6 more design ideas in my head. Lol
Hope everyone had an awesome holiday!!!
Well that’s new and cool😊
Thanks. Fun little project!
Thanks for sharing the pics. It is nice to see you here again.
Hey, welcome back Victor! Glad you found a little spare time to do something new and useful.
Making a concerted effort to design more this year. Design one done. Lol
That’s really attractive, Victor!
Clever combination of materials Victor! Nice piece of inspiration, good to see you around man.
Wonderful! Sure to be inspiring for others!!
Oh that is awesome! So simple and elegant, but I’ll bet the stringing was not simple. Wouldn’t it be cool in a mix of different color cords?
Got a pic of the bottom? Curious how you setup the eyelets on the base.
That’s really cool! The cord looks like a tricky weave - neat final look!
The bottom is just hooks that either are attached to the legs or insert through the bottom. That was the east part to figure out, the hard part was the math involved to get it to resolve so that the number of legs matched with the number of hooks. Lol stringing it was actually easy.
Nah it was actually easy. There are 3 variations, skip 1, skip 2, and skip 3 (pictured). Each of these variations ends where you begin.
Sorry, meant to include you on the reply to Jeanne. It was actually easy. Lesson learned is that you have to have an odd number in order for it end where you begin.
That is very eye appealing! Nice work… as usual!
Are the eyes glued in or just held by tension in the weave? It looks like a cotton twine?
The whole thing is held together by tension. It is cotton 3mm Macrame cord. I wanted to use 3mm paracord but I didn’t have enough.
