Citrus Juicer - Carving

Title: Citrus Juicer
Wood Species: Basswood
Starting Size: 1.5 x 1.5 x 12" block
Technique: Knife to shape in the round and chip carve ridges and flowers
Finishing: Light gel stain and several heavy coats of Urethane.

PeterC asked me to carve a juicer that could be used for lemons and limes. I'm fairly happy with the results. The handle shape is quite comfortable and the hand guards work well to keep the hand from slipping. The ridges on the juicer bulbs were quite difficult to carve and several are too deep and the edges cracked during the carving process.

Very nice.

PeterC showed the juicer to me today. You did a good job on that, Dee.
