They do look fun. May be a good project to work on my hollowing.
Thanks for sharing.

These are cute HT! Reminds me of some my Grandma had. Are they filled with sawdust? Thanks for sharing!

These are really nice. I can figure out the wood part but how did you make the cushion part?

My wife made a couple of attempts at custom made cushions, then found these at Joann’s for about $2! Quick and easy!

Very inventive use of small pieces.

US “world class TIGHTWADS—-AKA frugal people) really do like to use ALL of the wood we bought!

I have made pincushions that look like very small rocking chairs, some trutles, and a few other things.

The filling that I used was just tightly bunched cloth.

I rmemeber my mother having a pin cushion with a fine sand in it!

This was the definition of tightwad…the oak lumber was old oak shipping timbers from a load of pipe delivered to my workplace. Recycle!

Very pretty pin cushions, like the pretty grains on those little bowls. They have great finish too. Well done!

Have your say...
