Sofie, a person who is used to “making something from nothing”, has submitted photos of a recently nearly completed project. Foraged wood was the medium this time.
An old balcony had been taken down somewhere and thrown out. Sofie found the remains and collected it. The wood was fine chestnut, aged maybe 100 years and in pretty good shape. The wood needed years of paint sanded off and then, with a design on paper, she approached the woodworker Babis Kochelis for help cutting and assembling. The wood was intended to create new storage space in one of the apartments at Sofie’s holiday rental apartments, 39 Steps. The photos tell part of the story.
It is definitely fine, clever and handsome work.
