A standing small sculpted piece

A standing small sculpted pieceI had a 4 ft piece of cypress that has been sitting in the barn for quite a while and finally decided I had to use it for something other than gathering dust.
This is what I came up with while playing around. I used about 30” for the sculpting and after cutting off a bad end I used the rest for the base. It has 2 visual sides so that whoever buys it can view whatever side they prefer.
The entire project went quite fast and only took a few hours. The finishing (lacquer) and sanding in between coats actually took longer than the creative part.

Tabletop Bowling Alley

Tabletop Bowling AlleyI noticed several other LJ's built this project from the WOOD magazine of November 20, 2018, issue 257 starting on page 60. It's great for family fun occasions. The Woodbuddies built two so each family would have a game to play.The pins, and other specialty parts are sold as a kit from a Wood magazine vendor. The wood used for the alley lane is Northern Hard Maple mounted on a Baltic Birch base. The surrounding sides are Alder and the lane triangle markers are Walnut.We purchased additional marbles via Amazon along with bowling scoring sheets. The idea was to use this game as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) experience for all the kids. We discovered the youngest could not control the spring loaded marble pusher but had just as much fun rolling the marbles to hit the pins.All family members are still enjoying these after several months. Some of the older children are learning how to write numbers, do math and fill in the score sheets.
