Fleur-de-lis Clipboard

As long as I'm in wood cutting, salvaged wood, fleur-de-lis mode, why not a clipboard.

Making a bunch for the 3 French Hens French Country Market next month, and, Etsy.

Okay, back to work.

Small, Medium, and, Large

When I started making bread boards out of salvaged wood, I didn't know how many designs I'd come up with.  I went from the style of board you can review HERE, to what you see below.

I've been getting requests for various sizes of my fleur-de-lis bread boards.  My good friend Nancy thought a small board that could be used for simple little things, like slicing a lemon for your tea would be a good idea.

So, not only did I make this smaller version,

but, I've been making medium sizes as well.

So, now, I have four versions of my fleur-de-lis design.  Three round, and, one rectangle.

Every time I cut one of these, I get a new idea.

The other night, I was up sketching.  More designs are on the way.

If anyone wants me, I'll be in the garage, making lots of noise.

Round Fleur-de-lis Bread Board

Well, you saw the fleur-de-lis bread board I made in my last post.  Here's a round version.

It starts with a vision, a sketch on wood, and, a steady hand.


or, round,

as you can see, I'm having lots of fun making them.
