  • Cowboy Boot with Wildflowers

    JGR's Cowboy Boot with Wildflowers

    11 different woods:
    Padauk, Walnut, Curly Maple, Yellow-heart, Purple-heart, Bubinga, Mahogany, Aspen, Poplar, Aromatic Cedar, and WRC for the background.

    Wood burned the barbwire (first for me)
    Freehand cut the border with my band saw and then routed a 1/2 cove to inlay the rope into.

    I cheated a little by doing a couple of different things, The two brown eyed susan's are the same cut I used a 4/4 thickness and then just cut the pieces in half then flipped one over, I could do that because of my other cheat.... instead of inlaying the pieces into the background I just glued them on top.

    Thanks for looking!

                The wood is curly maple and I used Old Masters gel finish, I really like using it I bought it a little reluctantly as it is kinda high but I found out a little goes a long way so I am very happy with the application ease and appearance and will continue to use it.

                  I love the background for that with the rope trim - Totally Country!

                  Great job shaping those flowers - they look like you picked them from the garden.

                  The good woodworker does not craft the wood for honor. He uses his craft to honor the wood.

                      That is a beautiful piece. The shaping, wood selection and finish are very very nicely done.

                            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                            Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                            So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                            Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
