    Some birdhouse ornaments

    The first two are Walnut, about 2 1/2" x 4 1/2". The second two are from some Ponderosa Pine that was still alive a couple weeks ago. The wood was so sticky and sappy that I couldn't sand them. They just have lacquer brushed on to make it so you can handle them without getting sticky. The grain in the pine is kind of neat though.

    Great stuff, Curt. The pine ones really stand out to me because of the great grain and the way you oriented it.
