I have spent the week busting out stuff in hopes that I would make enough stuff to get through the holiday season. Needless to say, I haven’t really done anything creative or experimental and yesterday I started feeling like woodworking was really work. That is a terrible feeling since this is my stress relief.
I planned on mixing things up today by doing some turning… but instead I went wood shopping.
I bought some curly maple, canarywood, and bubinga.
Even though these are super simple in design, it was exciting to see them come together. Especially exciting to put the finish on them.
Board #1 Has a center stripe of Curly Maple, then bubinga, canarywood, padauk, and some beautifully figured walnut. It was a bit larger, but I had to cut off about 2” due to planer snipe which was too deep to sand out.
Board #2 Is mostly curly maple. It also has two 1” strips of birdseye maple and thin canarywood and bubinga strips.
Hopefully soon I can get back to being creative and not just a one-woman factory.
