Rosewood Pen

I know this is not my best project, but with this series, I want to show that everybody can make something even if they don’t have space. I mean my little workspace is literraly 3 feet X 2. 🙂

My lathe cost about 80$ and you can have it on craigslist for like 50 or so.

Have a good one Carl.

Cherry snowman

I made the snowman with cherry wood. Painted the hat black, and then covered the body with wood glue and then put plastic dust onto the woodglue. I then used hot glue to add snow on the hat with plastic dust and then added decor onto the hat and scarf onto the body.
