The HerdGetting ready for a holiday-themed craft show … these can either be stand-up displays, or be hung on the wall. They are cut from 1/2” and 1/4” birch plywood, and stand about 9” high. Finish is rattle-can acrylic.These are not my original design … the pattern was authored by Steve Good, and appeared on his Scrollsaw Workshop. If you are into scrollsaw work, Steve offers a terrific daily blog along with free patterns.

Another 3D Voronoi Pattern

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Another 3D Voronoi PatternWith this project I wanted to create an abstract representation of a giraffe against a deep blue sky. The black walnut carved Voronoi pattern closely resembles the giraffe pattern and the deep blue dyed veneer represents the sky. The dyed veneer was glued to a piece of 1/2plywood using a vacuum veneer press. The biggest challenges in this project ware designing the Voronoi pattern and then accurately cutting the veneered plywood to match the curve of the walnut (the walnut is not simply glued onto the veneered plywood, but actually set into the plywood as can be seen in the last three pictures.
As before I first designed the pattern in software and then cut the pattern on my CNC machine. The frame is 3/8 black walnut with mired joints. Finish is Minwax hand rubbed poly.

Silent Auction Gift For SchoolThis is a silent auction gift for my Granddaughter Lola's Elementary School here in Georgetown. Made of Soft Maple a simple wand spindle turning. I always add a short fantasy story for enthusiasm. This one was called The White Wand of Chadwick and on the base I burned the initials A D. so the kids would be intrigued and the parents would bid more. Thanks for Looking, Joe
