Work on the Walnut Project Has Begun

I know I was accused of being a tease when I posted pictures of blank wood. It's been about a month since I posted that picture. I didn't mean to keep you waiting this long. I just didn't have much to show you. I still don't, really.

This is one of those projects that will take me several months to do. Considering all the other projects I have going right now - both large and small.  The intensity of my work has been heightened lately, too. It could be a very L-O-N-G time before I have something in a finished form to show you. But at least, it's started.

By the way, the turning on the lower right was the first thing I've actually turned on my new lathe. Yeah. I know. I need to practice. That turning may not end up being my finished product... The two pieces to the left of the turning are parts of the wood that came off of the unit on the far left. I just love making cabriole legs! It's kind of like a chocolate covered caramel - there's something extra special on the inside!


  1. I read your profile (sorry for my bad englisch), when I was a young girl (9 years ) I travelled a few years with a circus. One of the artist who lived with us also made a minature circus. I wrote about it in my book 'Motherless", at the moment I build the mouse mansion I completed the mouse mansion with a miniature circus.

  2. Un proyecto con muy buena fahcha.
