My shop time today consisted of cutting and roughing 4 small piece of redwood. 3 of them will be small hollow forms that I plan to texture; the fourth will be a spline joined lidded box that will also be textured. The hollow forms all have the grain running in different directions. The one on the left has the grain running vertically, the middle is running at a slight angle, and the one on the right has the grain running across the piece.
Tonight we had the first big storm of the monsoon season. There was a smaller storm on Friday evening but it died out before it got to me. I'm sorting through 139 images I took tonight. If I'm lucky I'll have 2 or 3 keepers. A really good night would 5 or 6 keepers.
