My husband has developed a new addiction
but this one is pretty cool. He has
been turning wood on his lathe and using his various
saws to create trinket boxes and now pens!
He has three pens with various shapes and using different woods.
For more elaborate looking woods or acrylics,
blanks can be ordered through Woodcraft.
This is his trinket box using various scraps of wood we had
around the house plus the bottom was created
with wood from our own cedar trees.
He is introducing our granddaughter to the band saw
so she can make some Christmas ornaments
and going forward, painted wooden decorations.
In the past I used fabric transfer sheets for the basic shape,
cut them out and then paint the image using the colors you prefer.
We will be experimenting with other wooden items,
he's found some interesting and more unusual things on line.
I'll might find I am quilting more as he spends time in the
garage. I am pretty far behind plan right now,
still working on my Halloween banner! LOL.
