Default Chipmonks

Well after buying a new car and taking a week cruising around and checking out all the new fangdangled electronics in it I decided to get back to a burning I started a week or so ago .

This was a Sue Walters pattern from one of her books.

There were some knots in the basswood oval and one was in a place where it could not be hidden .

Hidden from my old eyes, Bill.

How large is the oval and what jig did you use to cut it?

It is eight by ten and I got it just as is with the routed edge from Wally Wall Mart .

One knot is the black mark in the white stripe on the chipmunk on the left .

I couldn't tell either. Nice job Bill.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Bill I thought chipmunks like knots. people generally forget that nature is not perfectly symmetrical.

Good point.
They probably do like knots : . I also like them in some places but in other places I would prefer they are not there.

When purchasing those ovals from Walmart it is best to check often and grab up the best ones when a new shipment arrives before they get picked over.
They are Walnut Hollow blanks and I have a couple with very nice natural bark edge on them. Might use one on my next burning.
I am always afraid to order those on line for fear they will sell me all the ones that the stores won't accept .
