SPREAD THE DAMN WORD
THAT WAS COOL
My hands are too small to do this effectively.
I wish I wasn’t iPod
if you’re on ipod you just hold down the reblog button
wtf just happened??
I can now seat 14! A dining room table project I’ve been working on. All recycled scaff boards and legs from an old table that was going in a skip.
I find mine at boot sales and flea markets etc. sometimes you’re lucky, sometimes not! It’s been a while since I found something but my tip is to get to boot sales as early as possible. If it says it opens at 9am get there for 7. They normally let you in early (in the uk anyway).
Found in the market at La Croix Valmer.
ART: X-Ray and Anatomical Stained Glass Windows by Wim Delvoye
In his ongoing series of Gothic works, initiated in 1999, Belgian artist, Wim Delvoye, created some very unusual stained-glass windows and sculptural works made of steel, lead, glass and actual x-rays.
Hi sorry I haven’t been on here, I’ve been working like mad!! I still have it, it will probably go into my shop when I get time off in the winter.
I will let you know when it does.
So I finished my bike… It was lovely. Just how I wanted it. I spent days spiking the wheels. At least I learned a skill although the formula for working out the length still baffles me. I went for trial and error in the end.
Anywho, two weeks later we took a delivery of 35 trees from Italy for a film we are working on. I rested my bike against the rootball of the largest one, a 4 tonne beech. A freak gust of wind blew ONLY that one over in the direction of the bike.
When you watch Kenneth Brannagh’s Cinderella in 2015 know that the biggest tree to the left of the palace gates killed my dream bike :(
Wheels built (mission) new crank and axle fitted (will fit a nicer vintage one when I find a good one) brakes and cables done (Jagwire Switch Bronze, look awesome!) straight handlebars….where’s my chain!!! I want to test it!!
Frame and forks stripped and lacquered, headstock veneered with Walnut Burl, brakes cleaned up.
Struggling to find a new cottered axle and bearings. Must be an unusual size.
So I haven’t been around for a while, hope you are all well. My real job has gone mad busy all of a sudden and hobbies and projects have taken a back seat. Bit I have bought myself a bike! I had to have it because its a bit weird. No idea who made it, but I think it needs some Gadzukes treatment. More to follow…
