The Oak Blob - FINISHED

Postby Pinch » 06 Jan 2017, 20:45

Yes indeedie.... The Oak Blob!

Or a flat cap... or maybe a Sherlock Hat?

That is the question....

Greetings Peeps! :D

I thought I'd start a new thread in the correct section/board this time. After all, it is a small woody project.

THE OAK BLOB

My new vaping implement holder is going to take its form as either an oak blob or maybe a carving of a flat cap.

Vaping implements as shown in t'other thread.

Today, I experienced the eureka moment and glued two pieces of chunky oak together which are off-cuts from an oak balcony guard I made a couple of years ago.

This block is currently measuring approximately 160 x 240 x 300mm. I am going to carve it into an oak blob to house my implements.

Or I might carve it into a flat cap.

Have I already said all of this stuff?

There's nothing like repeating oneself... I say there's nothing like repeating oneself.

I am rather excited about this wee little project.

Small minds n all that...... :lol:

This oak block is going to become a thing of beauty by the aid of hand tools only. 8-)

Report back soon.

If you're resting your vaping implements on the Oak could they be said to be "on the blob" :o :lol: :lol:

Indeed, and here's one of the very same - The 1968 Mustang GT.

The only word which springs to mind is............ beautiful.

Oh yes, if only...
