I’m at the Mt. Gretna art show for just three more hours! My dad stopped by yesterday to insure my booth was set up properly and provide marketing advice. Looks like it paid off. I received the Judges choice award for the top 10 out of some 600 participants.
An applewood lidded piece inspired by @lindajferber and her Aug. 10 demo for the Mid Minnesota Association of Woodturners. Thanks for the inspiration, Linda! The simple hole at the top of the lid gives the user nice and easy access. This piece is about 5 inches wide and 2.5 inches tall. #woodturning #woodbowl
Baubles! Bit of prep for the Christmas period. Working on baubles in the summer does feel a bit odd but it has to be done! I'll hopefully make around 300!
The Birds Hill Bomb Long Boarding Trophy...
Top to bottom... Galvanized copper fins.. Brass rifle shell.. Lilac bomb casing( seemed like an obvious choice🌸) Brass candle stick.. Burr Oak pedestal.. Poplar tiered base.. Bull hide leather, given to me by an old harness maker years ago, as plugs for the feet.. This piece came about as a result of a DM Sunday afternoon last week.. a well described list of general requirements.. myself and the party in question developing a concept and working through the design and development process.. fabrication and 8”x10” glossy photo progress reports.. by supper it was pretty much complete..just a few details that were finished up when I returned home this week.. the most fun I’ve had in a long while..!
Yes folks... I do trophies... 😀🌿
