LostArtPress on InstagramTriangle chips, together with cut lines, are the most traditional ways of carving decorations in wood. These patterns are triangular. The basic one is made with two 90 degree cuts and one 35 degree cut. I call this the single-sided triangle chip. The 90 degree side cuts appear as deep shadows. The other one, the three-sided triangle chip, has the deepest recess in the center. This is done with three 90 degree and three 45 degree cuts. The triangle can also have sides of different lengths or even be curved. If you place these three-sided triangle chips in a circle, they become a sun circle or can be a component of a rosette. (Here are) different examples of three-sided, three-cornered chip. — from “”Slöjd in Wood” by Jögge Sundqvist #Slojd_in_WoodSeven stools in two days. Just finished up our first Introduction to Staked Furniture class where these six guys designed and built these stools. They were incredibly patient and generous as I worked through my first lectures. And they were willing to eat tots at Larry’s, which is the crack house bar that is now a crack home. It was a great weekend for me.Stools, dead and alive. The students are designing their own stools today. We start with half-scale models made with wire hangers and scrap. These models determine the sight lines and resultants.
