    Pendant redux

    Re do of my first one. What you couldn't see was the 3/32 stepped lip on the back. So this was the fix that came to mind. Mounted a 3/8" chunk of Mahogany and did the pocket watch thing. Also a really big 3" maple that's kinda so so. Still some clean up to do and 2 more coats of finish.

    Jim,

    Looks like you are having fun! I stopped making them at about 150.

    My wife kept a few but most went away about Christmas time along with many bowls and pens.

    They are quick and fun... I think that this Christmas it will be bracelets instead of pendants.
    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Great looking pieces Jim. I like the design on the second. Do you have the settings you used? Thanks.

    I'm really liking these pendants you guys are making. The offset embellishments look very cool, too.

    Thanks Jim, I think everyone has there own "code" for writing down their settings. My settings look something like this 0,3, (+3 -3). I just hope I can remember what that means.
