Here are some completed projects that I have been working on in September. As you can see I like to use my laser to enhance projects.
Project 1 is done with recycled Redwood.
I like to play with what ever I can read in the wood grain as this next image shows. The horse looks like it is splashing water with its foot but that is actually a knot in the wood. This is a typical scene from my neck of the woods.
Project 2 is done with Poplar.
Project 3 is done with Teak.
AutoCad works well for gemetric patterning as seen in this next project.
Project 4 is done with Poplar
I was playing around with my laser and wanted to test my inlaying ability. Since I didn’t have any suitable material for the inlay I used a thick magazine cover and cut out the image you see in this scrap piece of cedar wood. The fit could have been better and the depth was off slightly but for a first effort I was happy with the outcome. The paper inlay looks like pearl but it is paper. Just ignore the big feet below the image.
Here is my laser work area.
I have been woodworking on and off for years. My house is full of things I have built over time. My friends say I am having too much fun but I dissagree. I am having the right amount of it…every day.
Woodworking isn’t against the law and that is a good thing or else I’d be in big trouble. Thanks for looking.
