On another rain day, I found another piece of pecan and made this pencil barrel. It is 3” diameter and 4” high and finished with semi gloss enamel.

Some one had thrown out a short piece of pistachio limb that was spit in half so I cut two pieces and made a book matched coaster. Unfortunately there was only enough good wood for one. It is also finished with semi gloss enamel.

I also made a sign for No Wake Zone on a huge puddle across the road on the back row of the park but did not take a photo…........we have to have a little humor on those days!!

Cheers, Jim

Both rainy day projects look good Jim. The coaster looks (to my whacked out imagination) like a Wolverine guarding a honey pot.

Cute & functional! Nice work. An exercise for the hands and the imagination. Well done.

That coaster looks great, what did you use for the bands on the pencil holder?

And there I was thinking that you had used some black wood to make the rings, then I blew up the photos.
Great job mate, the coaster is also very eyecatching.

Cheers Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thanks for all the nice comments on these little things. I have to stay busy some how

Hi Bruce. I posted some more photos of the pencil barrel in progress and you can see the bands I turned on the barrel and how I painted them before the finish cut.

Cheers, JIm

The basement sheds you mob have in the North America would be great for play like this.
Nicely done sir.
After a week of temperatures around 100 we’ve had a week of damp drizzle downunder so the under house shed time has been severely curtailed.
