These are a few things I have been working on over the past month.
The first 2 are bud vase/tea light combinations in purpleheart and
maple. The design came to me during one of my sleepless nights!
They look a little askew but that is camera angle. They are
cut at a 30 degree angle on each end and can be used separately or in
a row. I already have some ideas on improvements to this design.
The larger tea box is tigrillo and purpleheart and the darker one is
chontiquero. Just a couple of boxes. Finally, I tried my hand at a
tray. This one is cherry and purpleheart with a contrasting walnut
center stripe. I have another cut out with cherry and walnut with
the contrasting purpleheart stripe. Everything is finished in either
danish oil with a final coat of wipe on poly, or in the case of the
tray, just 4 coats of wipe on poly and a lot of hand rubbed wax!
Thanks for looking.
