« Part 1580: Lots of Fretwork! Part 1581 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1582: Aftermath »

I stayed quite busy yesterday, doing one of the things that I love to do. I really love so many of my creative aspects, and switching from one to the other back and forth always seems to keep me freshly excited about every one of them. 

Yesterday I spent the day at the saw. I had my headphones on and I was into a 'classical' mood. I got lost listening to my three favorite composers – Rachmoninoff, Beethovan and Mozart. It made a good thing even better. Before long, the three additional trays were cut and ready to sand. I finished them before the sun went down on the day. Below is the results of the past couple of days of work:

They look kind of nice altogether. They are all finished with the natural colors of the various woods. (Left to right – walnut, curly maple, mahogany, hickory and cherry). They are all unique designs that will have many uses in addition to candle trays. They can also be used as frames and the elements from the designs easily transferred to other designs as accents. Some were harder to cut than others, but they all came out nice, I think. I am happy. 

I am keeping things short here today because I need to continue on working on these. They need their 'presentation' photos done today and they also need the instructions written. I have two more ornament patterns drawn up as well and I want to get to cutting them, although it may be that I can only do that tomorrow.

All in all – it was a good start to the week. We hope to have an update to our site by the end of the week. But I need to keep moving forward. 

Happy Tuesday to you all. I hoep you have a fabulous day!

I do not know how you do everything you do and a swell job too.

Good morning to you, my friends! Thank you all for your kind words. I had a lot of fun cutting these pieces, as this is my favorite type of scrolling. I am glad you enjoy my designs and I hope to keep adding new ones that people will like. :)

Have a great day!
