I was inspired to give making some jewelry a shot. Small work is definitely not my usual forte so I had a number of items scrapped at the bench before getting to a final ones I was happy with. It was nice to put a bunch of exotic scraps to use though and have basically instant gratification from really what amounts to a couple day project (including glue drying time).
Pac Man and Ghost – yellow heart and red heart
Red Squares – bloodwood and wenge
Diagonal Squares – maple and wenge
Pendant – purple heart, bloodwood and yellow heart
All the posts were recessed slightly into the wood by pre-drilling with a forestner bit; finished with a couple coats of BLO and two coats of spar urethane (they were small enough where I could literally dunk them in and let them drop off).
