Ok, slight departure from the wood for awhile.  My hands have been giving me grief, so I decided to let the carving rest. 

These earrings are made from rescued charms and ivory piano keys.  It was just to see if I could come up with something different.  I'm very happy with the results.

Please excuse the lousy pictures.  Anything this small is hard to photograph.  They are 1/2 inch wide and about one inch long or a little longer, depending on the size of the charm.

Best of luck to you, Renstar.

I love the encaustic wax art.  It seems that you can get a lot of detail with it.  Nice.

Can't wait to see the temp tattoo art.

I have just carved nine very small moravian stars for pendants.  I think I'm done carving for today.  My hands hurt.



I think I'm going to put a finish on these.  They look pretty blah.

I have been working on WIPs for the past couple of days.  Trying to clear out stuff so I can start with something new.

I made a spoon to go with the fork I made earlier.



I also made a twisted knot, just for fun.  This is about two inches long.



A very long spiral, just to see how long I could make it without breaking.  Nearly seven inches long and stained with a cherry stain.


A couple of moravian star ornaments.



More baby spoons and a full size spoon of the same design.



And a couple of short spirals.  I'm changing this design, so I needed to finish these up.

Happy Ultimate Pi Day! 



I carved a pi symbol from an ivory piano key.

I think all of the amis are adorable.  What are the zippers for on the bottom?

And I love the idea of the inks.  I must put this on my list of things to do before I die or quit crafting, whichever comes first. Grin

I made another box for our charity drive.  This one has a slider lid.  I'm trying to make different shaped boxes with different lids.

I also carved another walnut spoon.  This one is from the same log as a couple of my celtic knots. I love the figure in this wood.

And for grins and giggles, I carved a kiss and a hug.  All carved from one piece of basswood, the X is loose inside the O.

Today is International Women's Day, and the 20th anniversary of the first time I displayed and sold my own art work under the Pinokeeo's name.  To commemorate the day I made a set of coasters out of a piece of firewood.  The markings on this wood was made by Mother Nature.  I got lucky.

My projects for the day.

My first carved baby spoon.



And I tried an experiment with my boxes program.  These boxes have no lids and they all nest together.



and look like this when opened up.  All diamond shaped.



This was part of the leftovers from my herringbone box.

I agree the fork is big, about a foot long.  It's supposed to be for cooking or salads, not for eating with.  I'm still working on making them different sizes.

I also made my very first ladle today.  This one is from the crotch of a sweet gum tree that we took down last week, so the wood is still very green and easy to carve.  I was also trying out a new spoon gouge that my son gave me for Christmas. Smiley




Please note:  The handle is crooked and the spoon is not round.  That's the natural curve of the piece of wood.

I'm also up for corrective criticism on these few pieces.  I want to improve them as much as possible.

Love the hoops and the cat, and I'm intrigued by all these prayer flags.  I'm not sure what they are for.

My latest effort.  Just a very large fork.  It's not finished yet, and I want to try to carve a spoon and spatula to go with it, but it's something for today.

Well, I'm at it again.  We are building boxes for charity, and this is my first one. 

This is a box made from plywood.  The lid is made by cutting the plywood into slices and turning it  on its side, glueing back together, cutting on an angle and every other one flipped upside down to get this herringbond pattern on the lid.  I've been wanting to try this for some time now and it seemed like the right time for it.



It's about five by eight inches and about four inches deep, a big box.  Here's a close-up of the pattern on the lid.



And the inside of the lid, so the pattern is sealed inside.



I'm very happy with the way it came out.
