Benjamin​ ​Foss

Examples​ ​of​ ​Project​ ​Work

Over​ ​the​ ​course​ ​of​ ​the​ ​2016-2017​ ​school​ ​year​ ​I​ ​built​ ​my​ ​seventh​ ​instrument,​ ​a​ ​guitar,​ ​entirely​ ​from​ ​scratch​ ​and​ ​by​ ​hand,​ ​including
finishing.​ ​This​ ​project​ ​took​ ​about​ ​200​ ​hours​ ​of​ ​work​ ​from​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of​ ​the​ ​design​ ​process​ ​to​ ​finishing​ ​the​ ​instrument​ ​and​ ​setting​ ​it
up.​ ​This​ ​guitar​ ​is​ ​my​ ​own​ ​design,​ ​and​ ​features​ ​a​ ​multi-scale​ ​(or​ ​fanned​ ​fret)​ ​fretboard​ ​for​ ​ergonomics​ ​and​ ​to​ ​optimize​ ​playability​ ​in
DADGAD,​ ​an​ ​alternate​ ​tuning​ ​that​ ​I​ ​most​ ​often​ ​use. Video​ ​of​ ​this​ ​guitar​ ​being​ ​played:​ ​
Photos​ ​of​ ​the​ ​finished​ ​instrument:

In​ ​the​ ​past​ ​year,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​taught​ ​myself​ ​to​ ​turn​ ​bowls​ ​and​ ​spindles​ ​on​ ​a​ ​lathe.​ ​It​ ​has​ ​since​ ​become​ ​one​ ​of​ ​my
favorite​ ​things​ ​to​ ​do,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​really​ ​enjoy​ ​the​ ​freedom​ ​of​ ​creating​ ​a​ ​form​ ​on​ ​the​ ​lathe​ ​and​ ​responding​ ​to​ ​the
challenges​ ​and​ ​suggestions​ ​that​ ​the​ ​wood​ ​puts​ ​forward.
My​ ​process​ ​for​ ​turning​ ​a​ ​bowl:​ ​

Some​ ​of​ ​my​ ​turning​ ​work:

A​ ​12”​ ​diameter​ ​by​ ​3.5”​ ​deep​ ​Red​ ​Oak​ ​salad​ ​bowl.​ ​The​ ​inlay​ ​is​ ​bluestone​ ​dust​ ​in​ ​a​ ​natural​ ​worm​ ​hole.​ ​Oil​ ​finish.

A​ ​selection​ ​of​ ​small​ ​Oak​ ​vases,​ ​5”​ ​tall,​ ​wax​ ​finish.

I​ ​also​ ​do​ ​flatwork​ ​woodworking​ ​and​ ​traditional​ ​hand​ ​cut
joinery.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​a​ ​red​ ​oak​ ​dovetail​ ​letter​ ​storage​ ​box​ ​with​ ​an
ornate​ ​scrollwork​ ​lid​ ​and​ ​Indian​ ​Rosewood​ ​inlay​ ​and​ ​trim:

A​ ​small​ ​American​ ​cherry​ ​finial​ ​ornament.
