Every time I think about it I don't have the right limbs available, then when I do I never think of it. kek.Been eye balling this limb that had broken out of a tree and landed on a fence and tangled in vines so it was kept off the ground since we moved here a couple of months ago. It was already there. I didn't expect to get any good wood from it but today I decided to check it out and was happily surprised. Got enough for these two holdfasts, and several other pieces one to two feet long 1 1/2” to 3” dia.Posted on the forums earlier about my improvised shaving pony, this is what I was working on.
The board is made from cherry and the ends are walnut. I built these for a local shop so they are laser engraved with “Black Forest Colorado” to give the tourist something to take home.If you are interested in seeing how I made them. Check out my video.Thanks for watching Brain Benham
This is a project I made for school. It is the first project I've ever put hand-cut dovetails in (though I did a lot of practice pieces before hand). Overall I think the stool turned out pretty great. Nothing fancy just some nice joinery.
