Work-in-Progress Pt. II
Today was a good day in the studio. I’ll post some photos in a second.
After trying not to be accurate, I tried instead to be very accurate, and the thing looked a whole lot better straight away.
I then realised that trying to paint a picture of a saw from memory was not going to work, so I walked across the studio, picked up a tenon saw and started measuring it and drawing it on the graph paper in perfect scale. Three times bigger than the real thing, of course. The only thing I don’t like is that its a modern plastic handle one, rather than a wooden handle, so it takes a couple of seconds for people to go: “What the hell is that? Oh yeh, I see it now.”
Of course, I’m not that accurate at the best of times, so it came out with lots of “personality” (for “personality” read “lines that aren’t straight”).
It still needs a lot of work, but we’re on the way.
