More crates...

These crates are 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 6".  

To get the graphics of the two of them I used a method by Steve Ramsey #ForMereMortals

Please check out the Mere Mortals Wood Working along with the Mere Mortals Home & Garden -

And here is another option - scrollsaw a shape on the end:

And here is a large group of them:

Wood - a Christmas Present???

Christmas Eve I was turning a pen. While I was, I thought that woodworking, specifically turning is like opening a Christmas present. You do not know what the wood will look like when you are done.

The wood is Bethlehem Olive.

Not long ago I went to the coast.  Specifically the Moro Bay San Simeon area.  While I was there I want some driftwood.  I was not sure what I was going to do with it, but I wanted some.

I picked up several pieces.  A few weeks later I deiced to try and make a pen from the wood.  It took several tries as the wood is very fragile. After multiple attempts I did it!

Here are pictures of the wood, several as I was making blanks from them and one of the final product.

Turning Pens

I am learning how to turn pens.  It has been fun but frustrating.  But it does come down to being a learning experience.

Here are some examples of what I have made so far.

The woods used (from left to right) are: Bethlehem Olive, Bethlehem Carob,  Bocote and Zebra wood.

The two Bethlehem woods are from Bethlehem.  The olive wood trees “are over 300 years old, and some have been growing since the time of Christ.” The wood is taken from branches that have been pruned or fallen limbs and/or trees.

I have always wanted a TARDIS.  It would be nice to have a full size one like in these videos:

Guess I will have to do with this one.

Poodle Patrol

Here is another project I did after work.

For both this and Scooby I used pictures from a coloring book for the pattern.

Just for fun projects.

Here are my latest two projects.

The cross is made with plywood back and the front is made with pallet wood.

The Scooby was made using a page from a coloring book for a patter.  It was a quick after work project.
