|Fire Maple Pencil Holder|
|KAPOW 2021 Week 2||Wood Carving||January 10, 2021|
|KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week|
This week I carved a two barrel pencil holder out of a block of tiger maple. There may have been more sawing, drilling, filing, and sanding than actual carving. I originally intended the chunk of tiger maple for a wood-turning project, but the odd-size and shape of it seemed more appropriate for a carving project (the swoops at the top were already there). And I could see the pencil holder shape…..
The textured pattern of the maple is pretty incredible.
I finished the pencil holder with a simple coat of boiled linseed oil.

Remember, there is no definition of art…..
