Well I made it in just the nick of time. I finished both of these on Christmas Eve. The snowman was for a co-workers mom and the apple was for my wife. She is a 1st grade teacher.
The apple is maple and blood wood. I found a source for exotic wood that is only 115 miles from home. I found a picture online to use as a pattern. The finish is a wipe on poly.
The snowman is maple with a wipe on poly. I drew this pattern using different size cans in my workshop and free handed the hat.
My wife said she loves the apple so that is all that matters and I’m pretty happy with it myself. Hopefully the mom receiving the snowman with like it as well. Hope ya’ll had a Merry Christmas and hopefully Santa was good to all of you. I made both of these using the CMT bowl and tray bit set. It’s been working great!
