  • Blue Heron finally finished

    I finally finished the blue heron designed by Bruce Worthington. The body of the heron was created from some spalted maple harvested from our own trees. The reeds are cherry. The beak, underbelly and legs are "mystery wood" found in my box of wood from Larry the Wood Guy. The swamp water is also "mystery wood" from a local pallet company. The log is a piece of drift wood found on the beach of Lake Erie. I found this pattern to be a real challenge and it makes a spectacular finished project. Thanks Bruce for another great pattern.

                              Very nice Tammy. Gotta love reclaimed and mystery wood !
                              Some of that mystery wood from Larry can be pretty unusual stuff.

                                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.
                                I like the fact...

                                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....

                                Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.
