I snuck out to the barn last night after dinner to tinker a bit and shake off the stress of the day. I was playing with a piece of spalted birch when it hit me that I'd love a pair of earrings made from it. After a bit of shaping on the band saw and some rough sanding on the belt sander, I was able to cut myself two small discs of wood that I hand-sanded to smoothness. A little tung oil, a little more sanding, then some sterling posts and there they were, earrings.
A nice little treat just for me.
What have you been making for yourselves lately?
