wine-y violins

Goodness, I should have shared this with you months ago.  I may have to create a new post category, something along the lines of "boy makes things" because hell, does this boy (man) sure make things.  He is sneaky, and quiet, and most often just shows up with some creatively designed and immaculately constructed thing and is all, "Oh what, this?  This little thing?  Yeah I did it on my lunch break."  And doesn't even want to blog it or brag about it or flaunt it in anyone's face.  So then it's a very good thing he has me, and also that he doesn't check this blog very much, because I am able and willing to do the above blogging and bragging and flaunting for him.  Maybe I can even start a new feature: "Tuesdays with the Boy" or "New Yankee Workshop:  The Next Generation".  Or ya know, something.

As I was saying, I should have posted this months ago but I took pictures and then it was given away to its proper giftee and I forgot all about it.  Until another project in the works reminded me of this thing and well, here we are.  Since I am not writing this in consultation with its creator, I will likely flub the details.  But what we have is a violin (?) scroll/pegbox (?) (Google is yielding some conflicting violin diagrams and I never got along with the string section that well) turned into a wine bottle stopper.  Brilliant.

  5. "new yankee workshop: the next generation" it is!

    it does get a bit crowded in here with the various projects... yarn getting twirled around a jigsaw, pinking shears getting put away in the tool box... tricky stuff :)

  6. Just make sure an eye dosen't get poked out or a finger gets cutoff during the project making!!! Your pinking shears are blunt ended, right?
