I had lunch with a friend today. Being a kindred woodworker and furniture enthusiast, he wanted to visit the local high-end antiques place. I was there last week but he is a friend. I humored him and went along. Not much new in a week so I took this time to look at a few pieces in greater depth.
First is a wall shelf with many different woodworking techniques on display. It is a sampler of various ornamentation and decorations. I like it.
The Wall Shelf
A few other interesting things to share. First is this three legged English stool with back.
Here is a chair with a unique variant of the trifid foot.
Chuck Bender of Popular Woodworking did an article in the August 2012 issue on carving three different trifid feet.
A French ladder-back chair in which the arm post extends down into a side stretcher.
Finally a portable, wheeled bassinet. Stenciled decoration.
Enough for one day. Gotta leave something for tomorrow.
