Well after a long hard winter spring has sprung.
It also marks the end of my woodworking drought.
This is a Shrine that I made for Ani Chonyi and it will go into one of the Eco-Pods on the Holy Isle off the West Coast of Scotland.
It is made from American White Oak, hence the title.
I went for a hand scraped finish and finished it with five coats of oil.
It will be given a good coat of Beeswax before delivery.
In bright Sunny Scotland
Birds are chirping and again the sawdust flows in my veins. :)
-- Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though 'twere his own. --Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
