Vessel 1 update

Alright, I have the two halves mated together and mostly sanded. 

Both half's are different and are not symmetrical. 

Now I have not decided if I wanted to keep these contour lines on this one half. I put them there so you can have a smooth side or something a little different if you liked. 

Do you see the subtle difference between the sides? It will be more noticeable once its stained, but I don't know if i want to keep them in there or not. We will have to wait and see.

Vessel 1

Trying something new here. These take an eternity to make but will be awesome. 

see these little holes

see these pins

she flips up on the pins alignment is absolutely critical to make sure there is no mismatch.

This way I know exactly where the part is when its flipped. It has no choice but to be aligned. All it takes me to do then is to make sure I program it correctly. Easy right?

More to come as the other half finishes now.

Ducks are marching in now too. LOL

OK I'm on a napkin ring holder theme tonight. 
Actually just trying to come up with some designs that can knock down my drop fall boxes and make a few dollars at it. I have too many boxes of drop falls and could use the space. 
Well that and I need some different things for a few shows we will be doing this fall. 

I ran the grain in the other direction than the bunny but it could go either way. 
Personal preference. 

If you need something like this, or something else custom done, drop me a note a may be able to help you out. 
Oh and yes the "Controversy" table is for sale too under them. 

Bunny Napkin rings

I showed a bunch of people at work the book thingy a jiggers, and they said hey how about napkin rings. So here is my first. 

Walnut bunnies. More to come as the minutes allow.
