things finished – the box w drawer (mostly, just needs one more board in the drawer bottom.) and a birch bowl.
This birch bowl has been around a while, but I just finished carving it yesterday, then chipcarved some of the rim last night. It’s big – maybe 20″ long or more. Great fun. It’ll be for sale soon, no paint – don’t worry.
I added a link on the sidebar to Plymouth CRAFT – where you can sign up for spoon carving, card weaving, lace making & more. http://plymouthcraft.org/
Maureen tells me there’s new felt stuff on her site too. So that’s what she’s doing while I’m here doing this… https://www.etsy.com/shop/MaureensFiberArts

Could you give us a close up photo of the wood grain in the sycamore ?
yes – top of american sycamore – already showed the lid; here’s the link
That is beautiful. Truly fantastic work. Two quick questions. Is that leather on the edge of the drawer? Will you apply any sort of finish to this or leave it to age naturally?
Jonathan – glad you like the big box. Not leather, they are walnut applied moldings, really. Here’s how I made them, then they are glued to the ends of the drawer front and the sides of the box.
Finish is linseed oil w turpentine.
