    some of my work

    Hello everone. I am new to the forum. Thought I would post some of my work.

    1st are some pocket watches.
    Next is amutipart candle. The candlestick is mahoghany. The candle is pink ivory, and the flame is osage orange.Then a mallet(Club? Blunt Instrument?) made from a bowling pen
    Next is a multifunctional device(I made it as a bud vase, dad said it was a candlestick, sister said a tootpick holder). Who says woodworking isn't high tech?

    All comments are welcome

    Good-looking projects! I especially like the multi-species candle.

    My Dad grew up in Dayton, Ohio. He said he turned a lamp or two out of bowling pins at the Boys Club back in the early '50s. I imagine there are a few other things you could do with 'em as well.

    Keep up the good work!

    Welcome aboard, Gary. Nice stuff...I particularly like the watches. The picture posting gets easier after the first few.

    Welcome aboard Gary! Nice projects. I especially like the watches. Maybe you could give a little more detail on them. I noticed a chain attached to them. Do they hang from your neck? How big are they? Where did you get the kit for the time piece? I also didn't realize that you could use a bowling ball pin but it makes sense since it is made out of wood, I just didn't know they are such a nice wood. Nice to have you part of the family.
