When I start to feel artsey I either break out the oil paints or grab my engraving tool after digging through my pile of glass. I usually come up for air when my coffee pot runs dry.

Very nice piece. I used to do sand blasting on my gun cabinets. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

What kind of engraver are you using? That is really pretty.

Wow. Beautiful.

I probably won’t be turning anything, but … I have the feeling that your little shop corner, there, must just be hours and hours of paradise!

That’s just a corner of a 10’ x 24’ studio that my wife has recently kicked me out of. Part of it is slatted to become part of our new kitchen. So it is off to an out building and a steel container.

My wife has that same engraver. She’s still practicing with wood. I’ll show her your project and hopefully inspire her.

Again, that is great work.

Real nice Gio! I really like your idea for the frame too…using barn siding with a profiled edge. Really makes your work sharp!

-- Bob Vila would be so proud of you!
