I just finished making these night stands/tables.I thought I would show you the process of making a piece of folkart - from a cedar log to finsh. I start off with a cedar log that's been in my solar kiln drying for two years.
The next step is with the chain saw - I have four types of saws with different blades for cutting different shapes. Then I use the hand grinders.
Then I use a hand-grinder for shaping and fine tuning.
Then I use a hand-rasp and sand them. Then I leave them to dry again beside a heat source for a couple of weeks.
Then I repair any cracks with nails and fill the cracks with bodyfill. Then more sanding. Now the painting stage.
The curl-up on their hair can hold keys, wallets, coins, watch, etc. - their full chest can hold an alarm clock, a book and other things.
