    A couple large starfish pendants. Most are much smaller.

    Those are great! So much detailed work where the bristles meet the handle (sorry, I don’t know the correct terminology). Looks like it takes a lot of time to create them.

    @glassgrl - can't believe I missed those starfish. Those are incredible.

    @Shawn Hoefer, you are bringing back memories. My grandparents did caning; actually taught classes. I've got a couple nice pieces they did for me. With all that beautiful weaving (not sure if that's the right term) you do on your brooms, that's a natural progression. Really great!

    Purposefully playing with potentially problematic prototype plaiting patterns (and wondering how to fit in another word that begins with P).

    Those are perfectly pleasing and pulchritudinous.

    btw- my granddaughter saw the broom you made me last night and said 'Ooooh! You have a witches broom!!!'. :)

    Well, I recycled some mother nature today :p Not perfect by any means, but then again neither is mother nature :laugh:
    Although they are not practical for large amouts of storage, overall I am very happy with how they turned out :) Never mind the maroon wall, been that way since we bought it, and I hate to paint, so maroon it shall stay :D

    I had one slab left over, so I made this for my oldest daughters wall. She is a HP nut, and will live it I think. She has been around me long enough to not expect profection :D

    @dubya - those are great! I love the "tiered" effect. Looks nice and functional, too (you can see everything!). Cute what you did for her, too. You're a good dad.

    I take it you've got a wood burning thingy. I used to have one as a kid (or maybe it was my brother's). I'd like to play with one again.

    Thanks. Yeah, I just got the wood burning thingy. I was at hobby lobby with the girls, and saw it and thought it would be kinda fun. It is fun to use, but a really slow process. Maybe because of the kind of word I was burning, or maybe they make much better ones? It was only $20

    Not sure why I haven't been 'alerted' to these posts - I "watch" this thread. Great job, Dubya!!!! I love the tiered display and the Harry Potter slab you did for your daughter :wub:

    I just finished this nonfunctional steampunk gun prop. It took a week from start to finish in my spare time. I used steel scrap, old tools, and then red oak for the grips.[​IMG]
