Postage Stamp Dispenser This is made of Walnut burl and finished with Hut Super Pen Polish. The Walnut housing was turned to replace cheesy brass import. Probably the smallest project from Marshall Nathanson's Walnut tree.

Bill carved 32 of these whimsical shelf mice with a Dremel tool, using plans from a borrowed woodcarvers' magazine. Designed to sit on a shelf, a computer, etc., with the head hanging over the edge, the mice shown here were made from Maple, Walnut (stained and unstained), and Mahogany (stained and unstained). Eyes are seamstress' pins, shortened and epoxied into eye sockets. Whiskers are black paintbrush bristles, individually epoxied into holes drilled by microbits (1/8" shafts), obtained on the Internet from www.ehobbytools.com.
