Started the next lighthouse. Don't have it totally planned out yet but I'm giving myself until the end of next April for completion. This is butternut for the column, which will be 26.5 inches. I could have done a glue up I suppose but I've had this butternut looking at me since November 2019. Need to finish a platter and will then start spinning the column.

Adopted brother came up for the evening and wanted something to do. He recently visited home goods and saw what strange prices were on candle holders there. So he sanded and sealed this piece of rose of sharon and laid out the candle positions. I drilled then he looked up the Latin word for hope. 16525768977735062307867218909432.jpg
This brother is 24 going on 9. He will never be on his own but he sure has a great imagination and (of course I am partial) he seems to have a decent design eye.

Getting a jump start on charcuterie boards for the fall/winter craft season.

I got the 4/4 walnut slab for free. And folks buy these for $100+. Not a bad ROI, since they are not as time intensive as an end grain cutting board.

Any easy free form shape to take best advantage of the board so, not much waste. And even that goes to the wood stove next heating season.

Once I get the shop up I have a similar board to do the same with. And my idea was to do handles like yours to limit waste.

Love them!!!
