Seg Man Ted (segmented) the 4th piece made from the recycled computer desk. Cheap MDF laminate sliced into ‘boards’ and reassembled as a face. I splattered it with wood dyes and used 18k gold paint for the eyes and lips. 21 1/2” tall. I used washers to space the pieces. Just a change of pace. The rest of the desk is here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/48491 and here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/59802
The first spoon is cedar using mostly the sapwood.
The second spoon I call ‘Once in a Blue Spoon’ When I pulled the bark from the handle it reminded me of the lunar surface. I bought some dye a year or so back and wanted to try it out.
Cat-A-Comb (catacomb) is walnut…. a little over 4” tall.
The spoon with the bark inclusions is maple burl.
I think the next one is Cocobolo??? Anybody know? I don’t really like the way this wood works but it has a nice color and grain.
A couple carved from a yellow blooming tropical tree locally known as Yellow Tabby.
...and this one looked like a lamb chop
one from spalted macadamia…
and finally, a remarkably detailed carving of a boat….
Thanks for having a look.
-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
