Pic 1. Wedge from logging site. Puts me in the mind of a cross section of a seed. It’s gonna be a desk set with two cones to hold pens, and perhaps a small digital clock. Still in the planning stage.
Pic 2. Knuckle of a branch.
Pic 3. Some sort of bulge from the trunk of a tree (burl?). Makes me think of a walnut. Not the tree, the nut.
Pic 4. A cube of maple. Finished with shellac. Dusty on one side.
Pic 5. A ‘gluelam’ with 14 0r 15 plys (plies?) of birch 3/16×2 x 18” discards from a mill that makes popsicle stichs, tongue depressers, golf tees,, etc. Glued them up and clamped the be-Jesus out of them, cause they were cupped (that’s why they were discards. A friend of mine gave me seven BIG boxes of them). Then jointed and paned it, and then sanded like crazy.
