Two new cookie cutters, and a fancy new Doctor Who box!

I've just put up two new cookie cutter designs.  Both were requests.  One, for a 'Cute Alpaca' sort of cutter, and I worked this up -

 

And the other was for the character Zacora from My Little Pony!  I thought that was a cool idea, as I really like Zacora, so I decided to get her done one day, when I actually happened to have a bit of time to work on it.  I've also been asked to do Cheese Sandwich (the Weird Al pony) and to do Trixie, so they're on my 'to do' list as well, but things are super-busy right now, so it might be a while till I get to them.

 

 

So those are the new cutters, I've gotten up!
The fancier item I've just added, however, is this!

 

It's a laser-engraved, multi-layered wooden box that I designed and finally got nailed now over the last few weeks.  It's based on The Moment from the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special.

It's stained two different colors for the two layers, and then poly'd to 5 coats to get it to a nice smooth shine.  Felt is glued to the inside lining.  This thing has turned out beautiful.  I've made two so far and I've got the process down pretty well, so I estimate a 5-day build-time on these for anyone interested.

I've also really improved my finishing technique, so the clocks come out a lot shinier now than they used to.

 

I've updated the photos of some of the clocks on the site, to show that.
