  • Pink version of apple bossom & humming

    Just thought I would share with you my recent "pink flower" version of my "Apple blossom & hummingbird pattern"... I used Bubinga for the flowers this time. Much harder to shape & sand then pine, but I think its worth it.
    I am also posting the "white flower" version picture so you can compare both.

    In this pink version, I used "morado" for the branch (instead of cherry wood). I love that wood!

    Comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

        Hi Henriette,
        Both are absolutely stunning. The colors are terrific. What a great pattern. I know Fran said I was stuck on birds, but I sure would like to do that pattern. Your friend.

                Well done Henriette you should be real proud of both of them. I also like them both. The two woods you mention are not ones that I am familiar with but I will be on the look out for them in the future. I like to experiment with different woods.

                    Just send me whichever one you like the least Henriette although I'd have to hide it from my daughters to keep it. I have a soft spot for hummers anyway but both those are beautiful. Pat

                      These are both gorgeous! I'd have a really difficult time picking one over the other. Great job!

                        Thanks guys and girls :-)
                        I'll let you know how it goes at the show this week-end... but they will only see the pink version as I already gave the white one to a friend.

                          Gorgeous, Henriette! Both are beautifully cut and shaped and the wood choices are excellent! Man, I'd hate to pick a favourite, but I think perhaps the white blossoms. My apple tree had its first blooms this year and they're almost pure white as opposed to the pinky white so many of them are. Love the tiny feet! Must have been really fun cutting those!

                            Both are beautiful, but the pink one just reaches out and grabs you.


                            Denny, I think it is fine to be stuck on birds. Some people do dogs, some cats, wildlife, so it is just a preference of a person.

Including 27 of these trains.That makes a total of 4,112 for 2019. About a thousand less than our best years but not too shabby. (Two of our main club contributors...

                                I am sorry that I did not participate the last few years. I am like a little kid waiting for the mailman every day waiting to see what Santa sent me.
                                Dave Thank you so much for organizing this.
