Beer Hogs

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Beer HogsThese have a secret; They are beer HOGS!Size is about 5/8 inch wide. 2-3/4 tall and 4-3/4 long. Design by T & E designs.They look like an ordinary shelf hog. However with the right angle; they will open your favorite bottled brew. Think upside down.Finish is walnut oil, food grade. I am very poor at wood identification, so “pallet wood” is going to have to do. They are a quite hard wood and will open many bottles before ear failure occurs.If someone can identify the wood species, I will appreciate the answer.

Segmented ?? Platter

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Segmented ?? PlatterI saw some beautiful work done by Alex Amoruso and decided to try one. Thank you Alex for the inspiration. After I finished the cutting of the pieces I realised that it was not going to look anything like Alex's work. BUT here it is for anyone to look at. Now I realise where I went so wrong, but all the time not intending to make a direct copy.The timbers are Jarrah, Meranti and Yellow Walnut, the finish is Feast Watson Kitchen Timber Oil and then buffed. The Platter is 13 inches in dia. and less than 3/4 thick.C & C welcome and thank you for looking.Bob
