For whatever reason I haven't felt at all like sewing but have gotten super excited about woodworking. I've been trying to practice turning on the lathe and gosh knows we've been slabbing a lot of trees. So when it came time to think about a birthday gift for my sister, it had to be wood.
I have long wanted to make one of the random edged little cheese/cutting boards you see at the fancy shops and I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt. "Hand planed" erred a bit too far toward "not well enough sanded" but I was in a hurry.
I also made her a spoon which I absolutely love. Best spoon yet for sure and it got me excited about trying different spoon handle shapes. Until the spoon I had nearly finished last night snapped in half. :(
After posting yesterday about my photo-a-day challenge I think I am going to give myself a new theme each month. This month is the month of making things!
