I started making these last year, they were made from scraps but I am using some of the more exotic woods now more deliberate planning goes into each one!
This first one is a fold up all walnut.
This second has Rhodesian teak, purple heart and ebony.
This is a piece of maple I picked up in Ohio it is sanded and finished with wipe on Poly. It is a fairly large piece and I have no idea what I will do with it or the other three.

Wow, all are very beautiful and well done. The maple might be good for something in a corner like a table top, display shelving with lights or a corner cabinet of some sort. Thanks for posting and welcome to LJ’s

Hi X,

The stools are really beautiful. You’ve done an excellent job on them…...I like the designs, too. I’ll bet you “figure” out what to do with the maple slabs….something beautiful…..:)) Well pard, it looks like you figured out how to post the pictures ok…..well done. Now….just don’t forget HOW you posted them…..:))). Keep up the good work, and continue making sawdust…... Rick.

The maple is unusable. Send it to me and I’ll dispose of it properly.

Thank you all for your remarks, I call the maple “mountains of the imagination” because when you stand looking at it it looks like a relief map. Randy I think it goes “I may be slow but I’m sloppy”

They are as nice in person as they are in the pictures. You are a very talented woodworker Jerry and I am glad to see you posting your pictures over here. When things settle down with both our schedules, I really would like for you to show me how you do your laminations.

Have your say...
