Fairy Door

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Fairy DoorThis a Fairy Door I made for my granddaughter. It is installed on the baseboard of a wall in our basement. There is a box behind the door that fits into the space behind the drywall. The idea is that There will be surprises waiting for her when she comes to visit.The door is made from cherry, the frame is tiger maple and the door knob, sill and roof are curly walnut.I also found an old Chinese coin on eBay and pressure fit it into a hole in the door to act as a window.The tricky part was to align the hinges since the door/fame has a curved edge.

Fire wood box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Fire wood boxAfter my old Kindle Fire reader decided to give up the ghost after ONLY 11 years of service, I had to get a new one. This necessitated a new case for it. The cheaply made commercial ones don't last so I broke down and went with something I know a little bit about. A design resembling a book is most appropriate so here it is.This is mesquite with hard maple as the 'paper' and a leather binding/hinge. That combo worked well with the old one so I figured I might get by with this one.A 'box' this size is a lot of real estate to leave plain so I added a bit of Lichtenberg figuring for decoration.Comments and critiques welcome, as always. Thanx for looking.
