This summer I have not been in the shop very much and even having a hard time keeping up with the postings, concentrating on buddies and not doing to well at that. So many great projects that are worthy of comments, in fact they all are. This project I made from a scrap of spaulted wood left over from my last project. Work on another project was not coming along that great, the wood part OK, just not the art work. Need some hands on therapy. Glued two pieces together to get a usable pieces of wood, the center ring hides the glue joint. Then Flocked the inside, I think this project will be a gift.

I made a video of the flocking process if you are interested. Easy process and gets nice results.

I have completed my other project and will post it soon, The lathing was the easy part, just the art work needed inspiration and refining. The idea was in my head, getting it out was a problem. This is the start of the project

Any way this summer I want to spend more time, biking, hiking, quading, kayaking, etc. at least one day a week, I am abit slow today after a strenuous hike. Quad 4 kms, hike 5 kms.

The destination makes It all worthwhile.

The view of the lower lake is in the thumbnail pictures. So have a great summer and I hope to meet you on the trail.

Well done, nice work for somebody not in the shop so often, you are forgiven, I’m not in the shop as much as I should myself.
Keep on making saw dust, that ’s all we need to know.

Beautiful box. And looks like a beautiful hike. I don’t do so good at up hill and high elevations. Getting a little old I guess.

I’ll have to keep my eye open for some spalted birch to try for veneers on the bows.
I also need to hike up to Blue Lakes sometime.

That box is a bit of fantastic wood, turned to make it sing and dance. Envy that view. Enjoy your Summer.
