  • Anyone for a fishy Yin Yang?

    A couple of years back one of my grandsons painted for me on canvas, black and red fishes in a Yin Yang form on canvas. I was looking for something to wood burn and paint using my water color paints so I decided to return the gift in the form of these orange koi in a similar Yin Yang format. A couple of small Shaker pegs and it becomes a useful wall mounted key holder. I started this project back in early October before I ended up in the hospital and just got the last coat of poly on it yesterday. It's really one of the first projects where I purposely blended colors to add interest and highlight and found it easier to accomplish that I had imagined. I'll never be a Grandma Moses but I sure pretend!

      They came out great Eddie, Looks like the water colors work just fine.
      If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

            Eddy that's fantastic!.... You're right about being no Grandma Moses, that's far better than anything of hers that I've ever seen .
            If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

                Nice! I need a bigger rack for all of our keys, but that would be too big. I'd like to see that tool chest that it is leaning against.

                              The chest came from Harbor Freight. I've had it a number of years. My original plan was to use it for all my carving tools and accessories but it didn't take long before I ran out of room so I keep my knives and gouges in my work bench drawer with the overflow of carving accessories in two other bench drawers.
