Cutting Board Christmas Gift #4 – Daniel D. Brown 2017

I made this cutting board for my wife, partially out of some old branches I found in our old neighborhood, which I finally milled up myself. One was Osage orange (I believe) and one was maple. I also used scraps of walnut and mahogany. It’s already gotten a ton of use!

Aaaand a cutting board for my wife @tam_a_ryn (and me). This one is actually partially made from a couple large branches I found in our old neighborhood last year. One was a piece of spalted maple and the other I believe might be Osage orange. I got a little benchtop bandsaw for Christmas, so I milled them up, and combined them with some mahogany and walnut for this board. And it’s already seen usage, as you can see in the second pic 🙂 note: I don’t have a planer – so these are all handplaned. I look forward to the day I can get a planer so I can make some cool endgrain patterns. I’m not sure I have the skill to handplane flat enough for the endgrain glue-up step. . . . #cuttingboard #woodworker #woodworking #diykitchen

Wooden Feather Earrings #9 – Maple

These earrings are hand-made, one-of-a-kind pieces made from a piece of maple I milled up myself. The colors are the natural colors of the wood (no stains or paints) The darker color is actually part of the bark. 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 was milled up from a single branch of maple I found. I then sketched out the design and cut it out with a scrollsaw. Finally came sanding by hand and then finishing with mineral oil/beeswax.
