Tripartite Framed Feathers – Daniel D. and Tamaryn Brown, 2018

Finally finished this custom mahogany frame for three of my wife’s artworks (@tam_a_ryn). If you’re in Pittsburgh, you can see it (along with my “Jabba’s Palace” piece) tonight at the annual #artallnightpgh.

I scrollsawed this feather, which my wife painted using acrylics. I then built the frame from Walnut & Maple.

  

 

 

 

Wooden Oval Earrings #2 – Cherry & Purpleheart

These earrings are hand-made, one-of-a-kind pieces made from cherry and purpleheart woods. The colors are the natural colors of the wood (no stains or paints). These are finished with a food-safe mineral oil/beeswax mix. 

This pair of earrings is available for purchase on the Laughing Mantis online shop.

 

 

The wood is initially cut to size and glued in the desired pattern. I then sketch out the design and cut it out with a scrollsaw. Finally comes a LOT of sanding by hand and then finishing with mineral oil/beeswax.
