Boats and figurines – little thingies…
I am strictly an amature woodworker and turner. I work in a hospital (head a molecular diagnosic lab), and wood is a hobby, recreation. Eccept for an occasional practical project for home – tables, an island, library, beds for the kids, and so on.
So I was a little surprised when I was approached by some lady whom I do not know, through a third party.
She likes arts and crafts, and usually buys stuff to paint and decorate. This time she wanted some specific items that couldn’t be found to purchase. So I gave it a go….
I cut three boats on the bandsaw, with some sails and dowel masts (?). Curved the boats bottoms;
I also made a puppet, whos limbs and head I attaced to the body with bent copper wire (extracted from some electrical cord);
And I turned six figurines (four shown here).
Everything was made with pine leftovers and cutoffs.
I charged an outragous fee of ~6 US$ a piece…. ;-P
I enjoyed the process, figuring out what were her requirements and specifications, and fulfilling them to the best of her satisfaction. That said, I have never done this again – from then on I do it only for FREE…! ;-D
Cheers, and pleasant weekend,
