Jude’s wood creations
This page is to show the work of my son,Jude.
It all started around 2011 as a way to entertain Jude while I was working in the shop. A few scraps of wood and some glue and viola’ a boat is created.
after that he experimented with glueing scraps together to create sculptures
From there we decided that birdhouses might be a good project: jude birdhouse video
I had a nice one day local show in 2014 that would be the perfect place for Jude to showcase his work. I cut parts and he assembled them into his finished product. Jude really enjoyed the show experience so we have been doing that show together ever since.
The birdhouse designs have evolved over the years often starting with a sketch from which we come up wiyj a parts list
The camper birdhouses were designed to go with his school’s fund raising gala which had a theme that year of “Road trip” they have been a hit at shows.
