P.S., well done.  went all out with the backing and braiding I see...didn't occur to me to do that...

Thanks sir.  Not sure why I did that just struck me as I was doing it.  I do like the lacing on it.

I am sorry to the participating group.  I had agreed to complete this challenge but was called out of state for a family emergency.  I have notified Halo of my situation and advised I believe Yintx should received her coaster.  If I'm incorrect, please let us know.  Again, I am sorry.

Ok Folks Drum Roll please.........

 

Based on response on this thread here is the list of who to send to and receive from...if you did not complete please let me know and I will adjust the list.   The selection process was a arduous one involving slips of paper upside down on my desk and picking them up at random to build the list :) Please send a private message to your person to supply address etc.   Also please post your complete pictures on this thread.  I hope everyone had some fun and learned a thing or two.   Enjoy the work of others and remember how special it is to receive someone elses efforts celebrate that!!

 

Kay9 sends to Rockoboy

Rockoboy sends to Rossr

Tammy no worries I'm sure we all understand hope everything is better on your end!  If halo can just send to yintx that will solve it with no worries .  Long as he comes back from sausage and beer land ie germany

Love the coaster Rossr!  Thank you!  I didn't do nearly the work to mine that you did - hope my recipient doesn't feel slighted. 

 

I'll be posting mine out to HaloJones in the next couple days (when I can get out to the post office).  It's the first time I've ever attempted to carve so with that in mind - I'm happy with how it turned out.  Looking forward to everyone sharing what to do to better/further my skills :)  Also looking forward to the next swap!

Rockoboy, yours is on the way! It may take a little longer to get to Australia, but you should be receiving it soon!

Thank you @KAY9. I am waiting patiently ... so far, but that might change! :whistle:

@Rossr yours is on its way, posted Monday, so hopefully you will get it before the Easter Bunny arrives! One thing I learned, I need to think more about the design I choose. "Sometimes simple is better".

Glad you liked it.  Couldn't decide which to send, so you got both.  Third one I did got ruled out.  For the bear I was going for a gritty, rough look, with a lot of texture.  For the ram, I tried for simple, minimal tool marks, flowing lines.  I hemmed and hawed a bit on using a shader for the petals/leaves/sticker burrs, whatever you like to call them, and opted not to.  Wreckerative cuts were probably a bit timid and could be much bolder.  Open to suggestions on both, both were new techniques for me.

Thank you.  Just the shape of a clicker die I had, and I thought it would make a unique coaster - not square, not round.
