You all are giving me waaaaay more credit than I deserve.  Sometimes it's just a happy accident.

I'm seeing lots of great projects here.  Love the little people and that ATC.  And the table redo is awesome!

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.

Very nice.  Burning on leather is sometimes tricky, but I can see that you figured it out.  Well done.

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.

oops sorry--I missed that in your post...reading too fast! Grin

Nice that you will have small boxes as well...using up all your leftovers...is there a craft that does not have leftovers?



I always have leftovers.  That's why I'm trying to be better at using them up.


That box is great I am married to a cabinetmaker so I know good work when I see it. Plus anyone not afraid of a power saw is bad a**.
 The hubs bought me scroll saw once, told me it was just like using a sewing machine , used it once the blade broke zinged at my face and now I am scared of it. He likes to make comments about a certain someone being a sissy. My sewing machine cannot accidently cut of my fingers, I will stick to sewing.

Just so you know, I am terrified of a sewing machine.  I tried once and sewed through my finger, then turned around and screwed up the timing on the darn thing.


Pinokeeo, I'm always in awe of your woodwork, you're such an expert. This box is quite stunning! The herringbone is simply beautiful. 

Thank you, but I'm not that good.  I just practice until I get something right.

It took a few days to make, but most of it was dry time for the glue.  It's a large box, about five inches wide and eight inches long, and about four inches deep.  It would definitely hold letters.

I've also kept the chunk that I cut out of the middle and am in the process of making six little boxes from it, four of which are diamond shaped.  I'll also post them when they are finished.

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.

Wow!  This thread has exploded with awesomeness. I'm loving all the sewn and crocheted items, the cat toys, the nebula blanket, the necklace holder, the 3-D ATC's, the resin pendants, and all the jewelry pieces.  You all have been very busy.
