A couple more…

Here’s a couple more projects that I made that were to be given as Christmas presents. It should be safe to publish these now.

Above is a bear shaped cutting board made from walnut.

Below is a farm scene on pine which I designed per the customer’s request.

NWORA revisited

A while back I posted about a plaque I made for my wife’s cousin for his organization, The National Wall of Remembrance Association (NWORA). I sent the original plaque as a gift, but they liked it so much they have requested that I make more.

Here’s a set of 5 sample plaques I sent him, each one with a different colour stain applied so they can choose one they like best.

Cutting Boards

Three more more cutting boards made November 25th. They’re all 12 x 18 inch bamboo boards with custom designs per the customer. They will be Christmas presents so I will delay publishing these photos.

Feet in the Water


I recently had a request from my cousin Jim’s wife Carol to make a plaque with an image of their cat. Carol provided me with a photo of Mikky which I used to design the plaque you see below.


Using my Onefinity CNC I carved the image into a nice piece of red cedar with a live edge. The word “Mikky” and the heart were also carved with a V-bit.

After carving, I sealed the wood with 2 coats of shellac and carefully hand painted the red in the heart. The black is epoxy which I poured into the opening where the Mikky’s image was cut out. I’ve had mixed results with epoxy in the past, so I was very, very careful and this one turned out nice. The photo above was taken while the epoxy was curing, hence the bubble level on top.
