Charcuterie

Furnished content.

CharcuterieBoard – sapele and maple. Inlays – cherry, padauk, walnut. I had fun trying to finish using shellac. Sapele have big pores while maple does not. almost two weeks of frustration (even tried French polishing – unsuccessful due to luck of patience). End up sanding down to bare wood (shellac appears to be a good sealer) and use wipe-on poly. 3 days and 5 layers gave me that “French” polishing I was after for. For now on just wipe-on poly.

Fly Fishing Wall Clock

Furnished content.

Fly Fishing Wall ClockGave another wall clock a shot with that Ambrosia Maple. I've made quite a few fly fishing clocks now, but this is the first wall clock.It's 10” by 10”Not sure how I feel about this one… feels muted. Notwithstanding, I often hear on here that less is more, so I held off on any embellishments. I suppose it does have the right look for someone's rustic fishing cabin.Did try a couple new things:I included pictures of the corners. I think I'm getting adept at extending the grain patterns into the next piece using pencil and touch-up markers.This fly rod is probably my favorite. I used touch-up markers to make the dowel piece look like cork.The fish is new too. I made it to look like a rainbow trout and also got inspired to try the splashes around it.Because it looks nice and received compliments previously, I added dark outside trim.The dark brown pieces on either side of the clock face echo the dark brown of the trim. They also serve to hide the edges of clock movement.Thanks for looking.Oh, and this makes my 30th clock!

School bus

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


School bus This is a Toys and Joys school bus build. I used white hard maple for this. The seats, front directional lights and license plate frames are black walnut. I purchased the birch wheels and the buttons that are used for the taillights and the beacon lights on the front. This bus is being given to the gentleman who owned the local bus company and recently sold his fleet and retired.
