yea thats right. i made 6 of them in all. this is one of the bottom two. i blocked them to make the bottoms of them a little bulkier.

haha i had to come to terms with sanding a long time ago. it's gotten to the point that i sometimes get nostalgic when i get into my sanding "trance".
it's almost meditative... if it didn't start to hurt so bad.

lathes are nearly terrifying. that moment right before you go to turn on the switch after you secure your rough piece between the centers. it's like standing too close to the edge of a cliff. your mind lets you know that you are about to do something very dangerous. then you have to stick a sharp piece of metal into a spinning block. it is really counter intuitive. luckily i am very careful and have never hurt myself with any power tools. ive had some really close calls though.

Those look great. i am familiar with the game but i haven't played. i like working with pine. it's soft enough to work quickly but strong enough you can still put some fine detail in it. i'm really impressed that you did these in a week. i can tell that there are many hours in each one.

thanks, they actually took about 2 hours each.

I strained my hand making them and i now have RSI which was bad, too much too soon.

I plan to do a few more when the hand is better, not bad for a first attempt though i think

I should mention a good knife makes all the difference.

I use a morakniv carbon steel blade with a plasti/rubber handle



An exceptional blade, i had doubts about the plastic handle but its very very good

Nice work, as a hardwood floor guy and a carpenter, I have a bias toward nice woodworking

Those shells are awesome in particular.

Great work there woodcarver! I used to do a lot of wood carving myself, along with antique restoration and cabinetmaking. Also tried my hat at luthiery for a while and sold a few guitars in the $5000 range. That was back in the '80s and '90s mostly, but I got tired of trying to earn a living from all that and went to engineering school so I could get a 'steady job'... kind of sold out, yeah. Traded money for living really. Keep at it man!

It's rare I see woodwork that stops me in my tracks. I've worked with some of the best and learned much.

You just stopped me in my tracks, I can think of no greater compliment to pay you.

Awesome stuff

I'm an amateur carpenter and artist and all I can say is WOW. The difficulty and time involved in the process of creating these pieces must have kept you busy. I'm impressed. how do I get a 4 piece bowl and spoon set? I love hand crafted art from other current artists.

Hey celt, thanks. I forgot about this thread.
I'm covered up with work right now. Maybe i'll get back to doing more custom work in the future though.
