    Made these for Christmas presents. I think they look nice.
    Carved the design with a v tool and then painted over it.
    When the paint was dry I planed just enough off to clean up the surrounding area.
    I’m not much of a wood carver but this is very easy to do and only requires one tool.

    Very nice indeed. And the short sides makes for some good practice in precision marking for the dovetails. I hope you signed the bottom of them and included the month and year, so that in a few years, people can still see when they were made and who by.

    Those look nice!
    I might like to make some. What kind of paint and wood did you use? What are the dimensions?

    They are 1/2” thick cherry, the sides are 4” tall and 3 3/8” long. The bottom is poplar. I used milk paint but probably any kind would work.
