These were my very first projects after a friend gave me a table saw. There were Christmas presents for family.
The wire sculpted Jesus was done by a coworker after seeing the wood working, and was part of the present.
Butcher block was all from scraps and I didn’t know what I was doing, but Mom’s always like hand made presents no matter how old we get. No really! She said so.
After applying mineral oil to the block, I was addicted. Woodworking is addictive like crack, but its not “wack.”(whitney houston reference).

Pretty impressive for your first projects.

Tell your coworker that sculpted Jesus is very cool as well.

Thanks for the kind words. My hope is that I will look back on these and say, “wow, i have come a long way.”
There are so many ideas that I have gotten from LJ that my LJ bucket list is very lonnnnnnnnnnnng. For a while, I will probably try one of everything. You know, like a buffet.
I like the problem solving part of this woodworking thing. And the way I woodwork, I am thuroughly enjoying myself with all the problems I create :)
Now, Off to enjoy more. Have a good one.
