Butterfly Wallhanging in Ebony and Purpleheart by xofox Butterfly Wallhanging in Ebony and Purpleheart by xofox
Happy Thanksgiving All!
I know that many of you I talk to aren't from the states, but who cares, a day of thankfulness and fellowship with loved ones seems international enough. So let me say thank you to everyone for all the fun projects, the criticisms, the ideas, and the simple conversations. It's meant a lot to me as I got started with the whole woodworking thing. Thanks.

Still, though, I gotta be honest; I feel sort of bad about this one. It's a piece for my older brother as a Christmas gift to his significant other, and I feel like I didn't really put enough time or effort into it. To be fair this was right before the scroll saw arrived, but still. :|
Also, I think I've had it with the glossy spray; it never comes out as I want, and I like the natural look of wood in any case.

There'll be another upload later today, but if you want to spend time looking at this one there are a few more photos over on My Little Woodcraft.

Pretty hard-ish. Mostly I've always just found it to be ridiculously brittle. I get more snapped legs and wings from it than any other wood I work with.

Oh, I know. I was making a turret (from portal) and the leg snapped off

Looks nice. The wooden wings would look really with a light wall background. Well done.
Happy Thanksgiving!
