Boot Bench Beauty Pageant

Last week photographer Gareth Partington came by the workshop to take beauty shots of the completed Back to the Boot Bench and the staked worktable I built last year. This is the third time I’ve worked with Gareth, and it is always a real privilege. As well as being an outstanding photographer (you should see some of the landscapes and portraits on his site) he also brings a fresh perspective to projects I’ve become too familiar with, finding ways to highlight the overall form and details of a project with a fresh eye.

The boot bench beauty shots are now up on the Portfolio section of Over the Wireless, and can be found here. The staked worktable photos will follow in the next week or so.

  1. What kind of “neat freaks” put their shoes/ boots in the bench heel first? They always go in toes first… easier in, easier out. And those of the “little people” are usually upside down and scrambled in assorted ways, or mostly just tossed on the floor in front of the cubbies. 🙂

    Beautiful work!

    • Ha! Heel first stops the front edge of the shelf getting dented. And I’m pleased to say that the Apprentice has inherited my OCD tendencies, so her shoes tend to be put away nearer than anyone else’s!

      Thanks Bob, I’m quite pleased with how this one came out.
