A Thank You for one of the upcoming 50yr Reunion organizers A Thank You for one of the upcoming 50yr Reunion organizers.One of the blokes in our mob who joined the Navy together has been very busy for the past few years locating and chasing up people.So in appreciation I thought he should receive a hand made timber item from the shed of A Crowe Creations; a large cheeseboard.
It's about 11 x 12 made mainly from recycled walnut, spotted gum, pacific maple, and oregon.
The finish is 2-3 coats of raw coconut oil.
It's a secret, so mum's the word so I can surprise him in October at the reunion.

Decorative Juniper Vase

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Decorative Juniper VaseThis one was originally destined for the firewood pile as some pieces sometimes are before I realize I might have a diamond in the rough.It almost made it to that pile during the process of making it, too. My frustration with this piece kept mounting and mounting because no matter how I looked at it, it wasn't appealing to me with its almost straight up and down shape.Plus, the usual unusual (see what I did there) grain of juniper just wasn't popping in this piece like it almost always does.After much procrastination and mumbling curse words under my breath….well, maybe not under my breath….I finally decided to try my hand at freehand fluting. Dang if that didn't work, and very well if I do say so myself.Sorry for the sideways 'pose' in the above pic. I ain't no tech wiz by any stretch of the imagination, and I couldn't figure out how to get the photo vertical. Anyway, the grain did eventually pop, and the fluting did add to the flow of the piece.It measures 14 inches high. The top is 8 inches in diameter, and the bottom is 5 inches in diameter.The finish is multiple coats of gloss hand-rubbed polyurethane varnish.Thanks for looking.TZH
