This end grain walnut butterfly is one of two the comes through the walnut sitting bench top I’m currently making. The bench still needs final planing, sanding an oiling but I wanted to post a sneak peek.

It’s part of the joinery, Kintaro Yazawa inspired. The butterflies are carved onto the tops of the tenons and peek thru the bench top. The pillowing is done via a Dremel tool with a very fine stone followed by sanding.

Really nice work. I want to try his hawk’s talon dovetail, but haven’t had the time or courage. You are to be congratulated. Sometimes the most beautiful and meaningful details are the are the smallest and simplest (simple to the viewer, that is). Thanks for the post. Makes me want to go down to the shop.
