Anyone else love the smell of sawdust in the wood shop?
A few years back I began sketching nearly every day as I took the Seattle Ferry to work. Which explains why most of these are squiggly. That came from the vibrations coming from the boat motors. Now that I don’t commute anymore (it’s been three years now), I actually struggle to find time to sketch.
At some point, the sketching progressed into these wild ideas about cabinet construction with mechanical doors, flaps, lift mechanisms, and gas-filled pistons. For a while there, I think I came up with every idea possible, and many that were impossible to create. I still want to create a cabinet that houses the phonograph and I want to make it by hand.
Until that happens the sketching has been a very satisfying habit/hobby. I have improved, I think, and I wanted to post some of my favorite console sketches here.
Get out there and sketch!
Oh, and if you’re interested in one of these consoles, get in touch. ;)
