Here are some Paduk apples I'm making for work trophies! I'm slowly getting things set up at my home shop and am now able to do some small stuff there. I found a large chunk of paduk and cut it into the equal blocks. Turned the tenon to fit in my jaws and then freely shaped what I think looks to be apples. I sanded them to finish the shape up to steel wool which gave them a decent shine. I need to figure out how to make stems for them.
The bases for these bad boys are all made of birch, one is from a birch log that still has the bark on it and it took a really long time to get it smooth on top and bott from cutting it by hand.
Next I need to figure out how to mount them and make a clear location for little plaques that will be mounted on them.
This is a really cool project that I'm stoked to see how it turns out. More project stuff coming soon! Thanks for checking out my work!
