A.D.'s new bench


Recommended Posts

I know I have a bench thread buried somewhere out there, but I couldn't figure out how to find it without scrolling through a year or two of threads, so I figured I should just start a new one...

I thought I'd start with a picture of my favorite piece of art in my shop at the moment (early 20th century French), and end with a couple primer and varnish shots, since that's what seems to be the craze at the moment.  Cheers!

I like the varnish.  My favorite varnishes seem to be ones that the color of the instrument is not easily described.  I like to visit maker's previous work.  Just so your old thread isn't damned to the bench thread graveyard.  

 

Cheers,

Jim

Thanks!  I'm in a similar position, but thankfully (right word?) you can buy rabbit urine online.

Now, where have I seen that scroll before?  Ha, there it is, arguably one of the nicest DG scrolls.  Very nice copy work A.D..

Ah, that would be the plowden, yes?  This one was more inspired by the Kreisler, although I’m working on a bench copy of the plowden at the moment.  I’ll post some photos of it with the original once complete.
