Bone Cutting For Craft Projects

Yesterday was quite the creative day.  I finally got to work with bone. First I worked on the rhythm bones I'm making out of cow rib bones. Fletcher showed me how to work the belt sander and the band saw. And I used the Dremel too.

Then while we were cutting bone, I remembered the bone I got at a pet store to make hair sticks, so I ran in the house and grabbed that and cut that on the band saw.  I just made the major cuts to separate it into 3 pieces, when Fletcher noticed it was making noise. He couldn't figure out how to fix it so I couldn't use it anymore. I used the Dremel instead to make the rest of the cuts.

A Quick Catch-Up

My goodness I've been busy, but haven't been posting here.  Just off the top of my head I'm working on the following  projects:

I just threw four pots. The line up so far is a bowl, a vase, a milk bottle shaped vessel, and a pitcher.
I'll keep you posted on how that goes.
