Here are a few more exotics I worked up and finished. It’s amazing at how different wood smells as you’re working it. That bloodwood set smelled sort of like cinnamon. I wear a nice respirator when I work, so no worries in that area.

That looks awesome, man! I especially like the third one.
What are these used for? Just decoration?

Love the OM symbol on the fork. Gotta ask. Hand carved? Looking into making my own organic body jewelry and not sure where to start but it looks like you do what I want to start.

Thank you so much for the compliments! IDSkoT, these are used to hold up long hair. I have an example of one in my hair in the whale’s tail fork project.

I’m so sorry I got these two projects so screwed up. Somehow I changed things and don’t know what I did. At least I didn’t lose comments, but they are somewhat skewed. ;) Color me blonde. :D

spoonman, I just copy my OM (Aum) symbol patten to my wood piece, cut it out with a scroll saw then smooth it out using my Dremel.

I like your work very much. Great shapes.

Just noticed the grateful-dead-style-bear one in the middle.Fun idea.

Have you ever ventured into the organic style earings? You could make a nice profit with them?

Thank you, Dan, that bear was made from lacewood, I’m working on another one right now that’s made from shedua. I love that style.

angelis, I’m not sure by what you mean “organic style” earrings. I’ve made some earrings to go with my hair pieces, but I’m not sure what you mean about organic. Are those the ones that have the tiny wood piece to go through your ear to keep them in?
