This week from my shop.

1- Mixed woods door plaque. Mesquite, Oak, Purpleheart, Birdseye Maple, Walnut and Amboyna

2- Mustache 2-Fing Ring. Walnut with Mesquite and Maple.

3- Initials Heart Ring, Birdseye Maple (inlaid Paduak heart) with Mesquite and Maple.

4- Love Keychain in Birch

5- Keychain in Ebony and Yellowheart (pau amarello)

6- Mesquite 2-Liner Keychains (x50)

These are all done on a 1970’s era Craftsman Bandsaw with a 1/8” blade and enough sanding to lightly coat all the newts (leaping lizards) in my shop.

No politicians were considered in the making of these.

I really like “Jaxson”.
What font did you use? I have been looking for a font similar to the one you used.

Thanks for looking, folks. I enjoy doing these and meeting great people through them via the internet.

MT – I freehand the letters in JAXSON, as I do in 99% of my work. It is the way I learned over 30 years ago, because I was too lazy to draw the letters out. The font is in my head.
