I made a basket for the cat that loves leather. The cat loves to sleep in a little wicker basket that is falling apart (see last picture, below), so I made a similar one out of leather.

I ran across the words “cowboy over infinity” in one of my notebooks. I do not remember writing it or what it was supposed to mean. This week, for the KAPOW, I painted it.

Sometimes you make something so strange that you do not really know what it is, or why you made it. This week’s project is one of those. I started with an interesting piece of driftwood that had a curl at the bottom. The curl twisted up toward the top, making a circle. I filled that circle with epoxy resin and made a swirl rising from the center. The entire thing was coated in epoxy resin (making it really, really glossy!) and an abstractly painted base was made. All in all, it came out quite odd.

This week, I made a wallet out of leather and patterned cork fabric. It has an interesting look….and so far has been working great. The grommet at the top is to use to hang it (if so desired).

A wooden pendant carved from figured maple, amboyna burl, leopard wood, and copper. An unfinished next step is to add a coat of clear epoxy resin as a glossy finish to help prevent cracking from wood movement. The idea is to hang the pendant from a chain through the copper tube in the upper wood piece.
