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.

Just playing around with some smaller drop falls.
Seemed to work out quite well. 


All of them are different design and sizes



A gentlemen at work acting as the stunt model. 


Just something to do but I will be making a bunch of them. If you have your own design you would like me to duplicate or would like something similar email me and we will get it done.

Controversy Table

This is something similar that I seen and I liked so I wanted to make one.

 
8/4 Hard Maple and Walnut on the top, and 8/4 red oak legs.

 
This is an end table or coffee table and can be had from any species you would want. it is remarkably solid because off its mass. It tips the scales at just over 50 pounds.
 
 
23x23x18 inches tall. Its like a rock. I have to put some coats of finish on her now as she is only stained currently.
 
Need one? need something similar? drop me a note.
