Kanji Picture Frame

A picture frame for my mother-in-law, it's carved with my daughters name in Kanji (my wife is Japanese) with her birthdate and weight.  The frame is handmade.

Just for fun

Thor's not so mighty wooden mallet.

Carved Celtic Knot

A celtic cross pattern deep carved into pine, I really like the effect of this, will coat in polyurethane and polish up :)

Bedroom Plaques

Here are a couple of plaques I made Friday. Both are fairly simple.  They are both for childrens bedroom doors.  I repainted the skull and crossbones as originally it looked to polished, and I wanted it to look a bit rougher, so I tried to make sure that brush strokes showed and paint coverage was not perfect.
