I worked on a new design this past week—something a bit different! :) I’ve had a few requests for some more light-hearted, kid-responsive designs.. which are not really my thing.. so this is kind of a middle ground.
Since it is a new design, I was pretty excited and I made two. I thought I would show off a little of the CNC magic that happens once you put effort into a design. And how each piece is still quite different, and has its own charm.
The red piece is part of a block of bloodwood, and is about three inches wide. I kept the block fairly thick.. I like how it sits up on its own.
The brown piece is a piece of worm-eaten oak that I milled myself from a log I found on the side of the road a couple of years ago. I filled it in with epoxy (and some glitter) and it is now quite stable. It is almost 4 inches wide.
I LOVE the contrast between the two woods – a fine exotic and a reclaimed worm-eaten local piece.. They will be sold separately.
I spent a fair portion of the day carving a big one (10 inches wide, 23 inches tall) out of another piece of oak that was locally milled. It’s not done yet, though, so you don’t get to see it yet. :)
