Another one finished up.
about 35 pounds of ground venison and a similar amount of roasts
decided to take advantage of the nice weather yesterday and convert some firewood into something vaguely useful -- no power tools involved other than the chainsaw that harvested the wood last year.
@mtngoat These are some of the Loom knitted hats i was talking about on IG.
Nice, the little peanut want to go yarn shopping after the holidays, she is finishing up a scarf for the misses right now.
3d printer this for a Christmas present for my grandmother.
That’s really cool.
Started working on a set of cornhole boards.
First time doing any wood work like this.
I’ve learned a lot so far. Just taking it slow.
Still have some work to do.
This is only the first one, wanted to get it all done other than finish before I start the other one.
Friday night I finished up a companion knife to go with the sword I made back in July
Valentine Treats for my special ladies....
My wife and my daughter.
Damascus necklace pendants.
finished up the shallow bowl adze I hammered out 2 weeks ago.
started life as a 12 or 14 oz claw hammer.
Made this for my son. His first starter knife.
No pictures yet. BUT I have started another stocking cap. I Found a whole bunch of 100 % Peruvian alpaca wool bundles.
I’m excited for this one
small game knife w/osage orange handle
and an ash yarn bowl for a friend who knits:
Made the 22 patch cables involved.
modified a 3 pound sledge into a dual-sided diagonal peen.
The Hat I’ve been Knitting the past few days I almost have it shrunk to size but it needs to dry over night to make sure . I noticed the colors mad it hard to photograph but it looks a lot cleaner in person.
Picture 1: Blocked on a cooking pot.
Picture 2: Family member wearing to avoid shrinkage
Picture 3: Doubling the hat over to allow the correct snugness when finished.
That took some work for sure.
less than an hour - I cheated and did it all on the belt sander.
did the heavy hogging with a fresh 36 grit, then came back with a 60 grit to convex and clean up.
gotta love ceramic grits for durability!
