Here’s another one of my pieces that I just finished.
It’s walnut, granadillo, bloodwood, and the lighter wood is called something like avingnon (don’t have the name right in front of me). The lighter wood (avingnon?) is extremely hard to work with. The piece is 12×12 x 3. The tray (granadillo) comes out of the box via a stainless steel dragonfly cabinet pull I bought at Lowes. I need to start making my own pulls.
Have been practicing carving letters and things lately and thought the top of this thing could have used something else like that on it but when I got almost finished, taking a chisel to it made me nervous. I’m sure you know what I mean. I’ll just keep practicing the carving for now.
I’m getting more than a little tired of just drilling holes and using straight lines so am going to plunge into steam bending or some kind of curved work for my next piece.
Thanks for looking. Be glad to hear anyone’s thoughts.
