Here are some gifts I made for the family:
Wife -- Ice Cream Scoop with a Cocobolo handle. My wife has used an old beat up metal scoop for years. She really enjoys the beauty of natural wood, so I think she will like this. I wanted to have a different shape on the handle with it being larger toward the brass part, but I ordered too small of a blank.
Son -- Back Scratcher -- My son is in college here in Arkansas, but is a big Florida Gator fan. I turned this back scratcher and used a blue dye, but was not pleased, so I ended up painting it blue and orange. My son does not have the affection for natural woods like I do (yet), so I figure he will like the bright colors, and the stickers as well. I don't figure it will be used much as a scratcher, but I anticipate him hanging it in his student apartment more as a novelty gift.
Daughter -- My daughter has a thing for penguins, so I did this intarsia project for her on the scroll saw. Its not turned, but I just put it in the picture with the others.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone, and thanks for all the help this past year!
