A new series of online classes featuring Traditional French painting techniques.  I call the hens, Faith, Hope and Charity. Fun! Traditional Kleister stroke techniques are featured in this work.

The tine is a small, 2/3 scale version of the cackleberry tine and it is 12" long x 5.5" wide and 5.5" inches tall.  The tine was designed to fit on the tray for a delightful display.  A photo has been included to show the scale and size ratio of the two tines.  

This cut corner tray is beautifully reproduced in alder and baltic birch.  All of the moldings are solid alder and the floor of the tray is birch ply.  You can see in the photos that it is expertly mitered and constructed.  The tray is wonderfully lightweight at just 10 ounces and yet is a full 17" long by 11" wide.

The designs have also been adapted to a rooster box as shown in the photos.   The box is constructed from baltic birch and measures 8" wide x 5 1/2" deep x 9" tall.
