Well, as most of you know, I haven’t been to spend as much time in the shop as I’d like. My 1 1/2 year old daughter
has been taking up most all of my time with my wife working.
This is my entry for the “A Knot Like No Other” contest. I started this a long time ago but it’s been sitting on the back burner.
The contest got me thinking that since I already had the mirror part done and it just needed a handle, I would have enough time to make it.
In the back of the mirror is a piece of walnut endgrain cut from a branch, with a small knot right in the middle of it.
Attached to the frame of curly maple is a piece of canary wood that has a less pronounced knot in the middle of it.
Below that is a piece of Ebony ant then a piece of laotian boxwood with a great little knot in the end.
I had to waste some wood to get that knot centered like that.
The last part to fill out the handle is a piece of Snakewood along it’s length.
The finish is wipe on poly.
