the box is made of 1/4” oak, and it cant get much simpler,
just butt joints and an 1/8” plywood bottom

the dish is carved from walnut, it was just a cutoff scrap,
this made me realize i need a bent or spoon gouge if im going to make dishes and bowls

the earrings are my second pair, made of walnut. these make great gifts,
but can anyone help me with how to attach the wood to the hoops?
so far ive just used some thin brass wire, but it looks kind of messy.

Thanks for looking,

They are all awesome pieces. The rough texture of the dish is making it stand out.

Thanks, I like to go for the “gouged” finish on most dishes
