Another painting today, just because I felt like it. An abstract this time.

300 x 800 mm, acrylics on canvas.



I think this is about finished. I've had enough of it for the moment at any rate.

Tee-Vee Stand


I finally got around to making a new stand for our living-room TV, to match the oak coffee table I made some time about 2010 (I think).

The oak I had was just a bunch of off-cuts, and it is exceptionally gnarly and twisty and knotty, so it was pretty difficult to work with and required much planing. So much planing.

Snappy Sammy Smoot
by Skip Williamson,
sometime late 1960s.

This is the old stand I replaced. It's a shabby old thing that I knocked up out of 12mm MDF some time about 2005 and pressed into service as a stop-gap.

As tends to happen, it ended up being a very long-lasting stop-gap.
