Game of Chance is another new piece from the past couple days. Do you see the rather forbidding figures flanking the spinning dial (the spoon and fork from the bins the other day) and the white, very old finial on top also from the recent shopping.
I have to say one of my favorite tools besides a battery-powered drill is the new bandsaw my husband bought me for Xmas. We found it at the Habitat ReStore. It's a table-top model, so fairly small, but it was brand new and was priced at $45...and we had a 50% off coupon for that day so $22.50. It is fabulous for cutting things like that checkerboard, cutting the spoon and fork ends off the figures. It makes it all so fast and effortless that I am doing things I never would have done if I had to struggle with sawing small bits by hand. Thanks, Nils! I didn't know I needed it until I had it!!
Since the photo, I've added a very funky bottle in the lower right, filled with dice and rusty nails. It has the cork attached by a rustic leather strap...something someone's grandfather collected his rusty nails in.
Off to the studio for more creating.
