I’m finally starting to work through some of the wood stores I’ve had lying around for years. With the new shop setup, I’ve got more efficiency in my workspace than I’ve ever had (and a lot more plans to continue improving the setup to come).
This past Mother’s Day, my mom shared her new found passion for whittling with me. We had a nice time sitting out in the yard of my sister and brother in-law’s beautiful country home picking out fallen twigs to smooth and shape. The pile of whittlings (?) gave me an idea for a project, which I started in the following video:
This video only gets as far as ripping down the small log into the basic parts of the mirror frame. As I don’t currently have a large bandsaw, this was quite a process what with the twisted and gnarled shape of the branch. If anyone has suggestions on how to do this more efficiently without a larger bandsaw, please send your suggestions!
One other note – the music in the video was composed by myself. I’m planning to do more build videos and hope to include new original music regularly, if not with each separate video :)
Thanks for reading and watching!
