Carving/Woodworking

I thought I would make a place so we all could show what carving and woodworking we are all up to.
Post up your work for all to see and give your opinion both good and bad we can't learn what we are doing wrong if everybody just says oh that looks great we need to have our work criticized so we learn what we are doing wrong.

    That's a lot of corn flakes!

    Mighty impressive!
    But getting a burl that large is a story in itself. From where? How?

    I tried woodworking, but it doesn't weld so good.  :D

    I don't recall whether I've posted this one before in some other thread but it's a display case I made for my stepson to show off three antique post office box doors that he acquired over his years of working for the post office. 

    I made the inner case of cherry from a tree I had to remove from my yard. I then laminated the inlay work to the outside of the case. The inlay is redwood with stripes of black-dyed pear wood and poplar.

    @jimarta Your work is really nice. I can't do jointery worth a hoot. You have great skills and your work shows them.

    The burl is from Grandfather Mt NC. It was from a tree that had to be cut to put in a road. It was a commission for a gift from one oil man to Hugh Morton who owned most of the Grandfather. I was taken to the tree and asked if i could make a bowl out of the burl 35 up on the trunk. I  said yes and a year later completed to project. I don't want to do another.

    Rodger and Marty those are some impressive pieces and absolutely gorgeous!

    Archy I like you're pieces too, takes a lot of effort to start and learn it, way more than I could ever carve!

    Carving is out of my league. I think I'm just spatially challenged or something. 

    One of the most impressive pieces of work that I recall seeing is a carving by a Native American from one of the Northwest tribes. It's a disc ( probably of a variety of cedar) and carved into that disc is a stylized image of Raven with a salmon in its beak. I liked that piece so much that for years I used a photo of it as the wallpaper on my computer monitor. 

    I think this link may get you to a photo of it:

    Nope. It didn't work. And for some reason, I can't edit out what I think the problem is. 

    If if you want to try, just enter everything but the [IMG][/URL] at the end and try that. For some reason, it's really difficult for me to retrieve photos I've saved in Photobucket ....

    OOPS!!  It DID work!  Summagun.....
