Made these in the last couple days while it has been pouring rain…....a nice steady woodworking rain!
Three of the spoons are cherry and one is holly. The cherry spoons are 12”, 8”, and 7” long. The holly is 8” long. All were made with carving tools and a lot of sanding. The 8” cherry spoon has a heart on the end that just sort of appeared there as I was shaping it. Turned out to be quite nice. All are finished with mineral oil and buffed to a lustre with care.
The walnut bracelet box turned out to be a lot better than I had hoped. It measures 5 1/2” x 3 3/4” x 5/8”. It is a bandsaw box and was just a piece of cast-off laying in the shop. This thing really glued up nice and tight. You can hardly see where it was sawn apart. This was finished with 3 coats of Danish oil and then 1 of Howards wax. I have buffed and shined this thing so much that it is as smooth as smooth can be.
Thanks for the looks and comments.
Joe, thanks for the inspiration. You are the king!
