Damn, that is impressive. Really nice work. I think my favorite is the table.

your very talented Rabbit, good work... Do you sell this stuff or just do it for yourself ?

Thanks gang.


I just do it for myself. If I *have* to do it I won't enjoy doing it

Selling would require deadlines and productivity, I'd rather just putter

Yeah, great work, Rabid! The furniture is killah! Do you make everything for it, or are they ready-made pieces that you finish/assemble? As far as the figurines, as long as it's something that makes YOU happy, don't give a hoot about what anyone says/thinks. Are they paying for it? No. So, should they be running their mouths about it? Same answer.

The furniture is scratch built.

The viking bookcase is made from pink foam insulation, plaster, glue and paint. Very labor intensive. Basically the same process they use to make rocks/ruins/castles/models and such in movies. It is a process that hearkens back to live stage craft & set design.

The other bookcase is made out of 8x16 cement blocks painted, drybrushed and stenciled. Might be the world's heaviest bookcase

The "asian" table was just cheap furniture grade lumber, plywood, paper (even the "metallic" centre piece is just metallic matte paper for framing that I hit with a concoction of different glazes to make it look like beaten copper) and ceramic floor tiles that were glazed. The table also has lights inside that illuminate it like a big japanese lantern.

The miniatures... a hold over from a dorky youth rolling polyhedral dice. It seems a shame to stop as I am quite good, and it is fun to put so much detail into things 1" - 2" tall. I also have about $2k worth of them unpainted in my closet

I like manual hobbies (and lifting) because my work is all brain based.

Edit: I have insomnia tonight :(

I'll see if I can post some pics, I usually post when I'm at work, and I have no camera here, but I'll see if I can get some taken.

Rabit, your furniture is sweet, wish I had time to build stuff like that ... and the skill.
