Spring has sprung! The birdies are coming from the south and I’m carving up a storm!! or Minnie mouse’s dancing shoe.
A wood turning friend challenged me with an irregular piece of maple burl, the dimensions were awkward to say the least. As I began to handle the wood the first thought was a woman’s dancing shoe, broad toe and moderate heel to allow for some toe tapping and jiving. Who else fit the bill? but Minnie Mouse!
I kept the burl for a live edge and finished it with a varathane coat. Enjoy!
