It’s been quite a while since I’ve been in my shop. But today was the day. Bad leg or not, Christmas is comming and I have about a dozen gifts to make.
Last year I made some small wooden boxes – and in case you didn’t already know, I just love small wooden boxes!
But this year I’m cutting back; not because I want to but because I need to keep off my healing knee repair. So I whipped these up in three hours from three different Australian timbers – Red Gum on the right, Huon Pine in the center and Tasmanian Blackwood on the right.
The finish is friction polish from Ubeaut.
I’ve inserted a glass vial in each to retain the water. Hope my friends and family understand. Each one is slightly different in shape – not intentional.
Sorry the pictures are similar, but why waste the space?
