Butterfly


Sorry its been a little while. Kind of lost my password to blogger. Oh-Well

Recent project. These are actually real wings from Brazil. Making this for a friend but it is so amazing to look at. He is doing the sanding and finishing, but the step in the front of the circle is for a piece of glass once finished. 


Will make a gorgeous wall hanging.  


I just hope he has more sets because I want one for myself too. 


email me please if I can do something for you.

Simple and Elegant

Purple Heart and Ash burl left overs. Couldn't see not using them for something for my desk. 
Or yours perhaps?

Unfinished as the working model can be made from anything you would like. A little sanding and finishing on this one. 


I just hate to see little pieces go to waste. 





Drop me a note and Maybe I can put something together for you.
Come back in a few and should have her finished up.

The top of the little lid still on the machine.


once off the machine and hit with a torch to darken it up. 


Same


Inside of the lid. carrying the theme to the inside too.

These sign are finally ready to go.

Thank you to Michael for being so patient with me as he said no rush required. Just getting them packaged up and on their way to their new home. The two similar signs are outdoor signs with appropriate finish, the really awesome one is and indoor sign I believe for the foyer to his home. 

This one is Black walnut frame with Curly Hickory insert


The portrait turned out nice I think since there wasn't a photo of this awesome individual. 
Purpleheart frame, cherry interlocks with hard maple insert.


Quite photogenic I think,


strait mitered corner. 


similar ones together to embellish this mans property's gates. 


I agree completely with this next one. 


Damn that dude was sharp as a tack 


purpleheart wood, cherry corner locks, maple sign insert


Rounded internal "miter" locking joint


Michael its been a pleasure, and I hope you enjoy them. Please let me know if I can something for you again.
