I have a friend that runs the Arts Department at St. Francis College here in Ft. Wayne . He recently hand painted and fired the ceramic figures for the Chess set that I made, starting in 1993,yes, I know, that was 22 years ago, talk about an ongoing project Hey!! I will post the completed set at a later date. I thought that it might be a nice gesture to reward him with some wood art, along with some monetary compensation. The first three pictures are of a segmented bowl complete with lid and finial, I believe that there might be a google eyed key chain there also. The bowl is made from a special plywood that came from some laminated floor boards sample sheet. The 4th picture is some lamination trickery inspired from some of Malcolm Tibbetts works. The 5th picture is just some strips of wood that was left from making cutting boards, guess that you could call this a small cutting board, or maybe a cheese board. Thelast picture is everything grouped together, the little fellow standing on the left is an egg made from spalted white oak. Everyone should have a turned wooden egg.
