Some woodwork for a change !

Hi everyone, here are a few things made by my 
lovely talented husband. Hope you enjoy looking 
at them all.
I intended to add just a few but after a request by
my dear friend Jackie.........here  are  quite a few ;)
Wood Basket to go with our woodburner.
(he just couldn't find one in the shops he liked, 
so he designed his own).
 You can see how strong it is and how much it holds.

Here it is without the wood.

Egg holder (my request)
The shelves are loose for ease of use.
Silver Birch Candle holders ( my request)
He made the shelf below them to go with the
 fire surround and our beams which he also made himself.

Tall matches holder ( top 4 rings come off)

Yew wood match holder

Yew vase

Another vase, hollow inside but hard to see here.

Two vases inside each other, marked for further painting
(excuse the dust)

Some painted vases

Apples, they all come apart.




Oops forgive the dust, found it in his workroom!
Same plate as above

Tall Yew vase

Tall  vase

 2 vases .....earlier work



Selection of items

Various painted mushrooms

Please excuse all the bottles, it was Xmas I believe.

Latest bench for our garden

Wet from rain here but waterproof after so many coats of stain.

Two more benches and a table

Twisty walking sticks

This is all, hope you enjoyed looking :)

Wow Viv these are amazing, a professional "bodger"! Fab designs love the vases and those wonderful mushrooms:) I assume he must sell these otherwise you'd be snowed under! Love all the different woods, what a creative pair you are.

WOW! Your husband is so clever! I really do love items made of natural wood, we have a carved apple and pear which I frequently stroke!
Thank you for sharing.

Super things! Between the two of you I think you can make somanny things! Your both verry talented! Hugs, Gerrina

Jackie said...

Thank you Viv, what a wonderful selection, Colin is so clever. My favourite pieces are the colourful mushrooms and those wonderful sticks, but I really love the one you have labelled 'another vase'.
With your stunning cards and jewellery and Colin's superb woodwarling skills, I'm surprised you haven't opened a studio shop! :o)
Hugs to you both, Jackie xx

Jackie said...
