  • JGR Cranes Done!!!!!!

    After many delays, none of them my fault, the JGR sandhill cranes are done and ready to hang. Woods are aspen, oak, WRC, aromatic cedar, and madrone.

      Ah come on Amica! you don't expect us to believe that do you?

      Well. the wait was definitely worth it. Absolutely, beautiful work

      Now forget out those piddlin' birdhouses- A large chimney stack with a load of sticks and twigs on top would make a great nest for these two to fly home to!

      Congratulations!

            Thanks for all the nice comments. The cranes have now found their home over the sofa rather than in a chimney as Jim suggested.

              Very well done, yes the wait was worth the reward.

                    Super Wow! Your cranes came out nicely Jan. I don't know where you find the patience to fit all those pieces together. Superb work. What's next?

                      Thanks again for the nice comments. Next are some easy Christmas intarsia pieces and more of the Diana Thompson miniature birdhouses for a gift shop nearby. They originally asked for 30 birdhouses, changed the order to 50 and again to 70. The first 30 went out the door fairly quickly, I guess.

                      @ Rick: No patience involved. I'm stuck at home taking care of a 94 year old aunt and a husband recovering from a hand injury (table saw got him) I hide in the shop and play with my saw.

                          Hi Jan,

                          What a great job on th Sandhill Cranes. One of my favorite birds. Every late fall, they winter here in TN. We get to see (and hear) them every day. What a great sight.

                              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.

                              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.
