Had some scrap oak from a chest my dad had made, and started thinking about what to use it for. got the general shape i wanted in head and just tried it out on the band sander. Lots of hand sanding after the initial shaping, turned out better than i expected, so i tried cherry and walnut scraps out. sanding steps up from 100 to 400 grit, finished off with 3 coats of butcher block mineral oil. took them to work and showed them to some of the ladies there, came home with orders for five more sets! thanks for looking!
