In the latter part of 2016 we made some primitive angels. Now its time to make some more. With no more pallets boards handy, I gathered some blue denim pine that’s been drying in the shop from the trees we cleared in the summer 2016.
Our beautiful wood wreaths are made from locally sourced trees. A variety of birch, alder and other trees make up each wreath.
I slabbed these boards from a curve in a trunk a couple days ago. I think its spruce. About 1 inch thick. The overall length is about 53 inches. The width at the apex of the curve is 6-8 inches. The overall height is 10-12 inches. Live edges. Check the For Sale page for price and if still for sale.

After lunch, it was still raining and heavy at times. Best thing to do is spend the day indoors making sawdust. I made some small angels to go along with the larger angels made earlier this week.
I got a call..no, not a turkey call… from a customer in New Jersey. Seems she just loves these turkey yard art projects but cannot get anyone to make them for her. She wanted to know if I could do them.
A couple of people contacted me about combining the design on my wooden maps with cribbage boards. Worth a shot I figured. It was only when I realized I had to drill 361 holes did I begin to understand the amount of work involved.
