  • Trail Mix Collection

    Well we've finally made the decision to start sharing some of the pictures of our latest series which we've called "Trail Mix". The series currently has animals from North America with our particular twist on their look. We're also working on various ways of doing the backer boards which you can see on the Highbou project. Feedback, comments and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I love that piece, The textures and colours really work well together.
    This is what separates the craft from art.

    I like the fact that the piece doent need framing.

      I was hoping it was something to eat.

          WOW! I like 'em all. How big are they? New approach to intarsia/segmentation that I would love to try. Way to go ladies (is that PC?).

            Oh Mooner. Giggle.

            Thank you for your kind comments on our work. We are having fun with these characters in Trail Mix and I have just come from the shop where I cut out another moose (we have two in the collection so far) and Sue is working on some cougars as I type this. The need for coffee was stronger than the need for more sawdust on my part.

            My daughter, who often reads the forums on woodworking, tells me about your post. Then laughed at your comment about Sue and I being ladies, said "If he could only see you both now Mom". In her view, as I come out of the shop for coffee and sees me in workboots, jeans and jean shirt over tshirt, lightly garnished in sawdust making me look grey (and a tell tale sigh I wasn't wearing my bandana) complete with new wrinkles from my dust mask. Apparently no lady. Giggle.

            Think Sue fairs better on that title, the grand old dame of Chrestensen Burghout Designs, wears the grey hair well.

            Again, thanks Mooner.

              Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

              For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
              The laser doesn't care about grain....

              A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
