Hi everyone…it’s been a long time since I’ve had a completed project to share…unless you want to see the 5 acres of fencing I’ve worked on this summer.
…which I seriously doubt… :)
You guys can blame the appearance of this cherry piece on the new Mallets of your Dream thread…after enjoying a few lovely whackers on the thread, I realized I don’t even own a real mallet. I’ve been using a stick of walnut from the firewood pile for so long, I’ve just become used to the sorry performance. The shame!
So, I carved this guy out this past weekend from a chunk of 16/4 cherry that has been drying in the shop for too long! I used both power and hand tools in the creation…finish is simply BLO.
Overall length is 11.5”; weight is 15oz.
Blog is here.
Any ideas and comments are welcomed…
