Rick Hounjet has finished two more pieces for our viewing pleasure.


I made this tea light holder out of Box Elder. After spending many hours picking bark out of an inclusion this very cool hole appeared. I call the piece ‘Deep Sea Cavern.’

I found this snowman in a piece of Spruce and it had eyes and a smile already in the wood.
Rick.
