  • Finally got my lock and chain done!!!

    Well I have certainly been busy the last couple of weeks!! Not only did I get my ginger jar done but I finally finished my lock and chain!! It's made from cherry (I think it was so long ago I can't remember!!) and maple with a shellac finish. Unfortunately the chain was made from poplar so it looks pretty darn green!!! I was not happy with that. The lock was fun the chain was a challenge!!!


    I will probably make a new chain from some butternut. This will be one of my entries for the fair this year. Thanks for looking!!

      Very nice, Kathy. Love the lock and the key is delightful! Try to keep the chain out of the moss. <wink>

              They look great! I like the green chain it won't stay that color. The green goes brown over time. I guess you got the key issues sorted out.

                      He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                      Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                      It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
