The bowl was turned for my daughter-in-law’s birthday and is made with cherry, walnut, and padauk. Most pieces of any previous turning I’ve done, 86 pieces to make this one. Learned a lot, looking forward to the next one.

The shelf was made for my son’s home office. It’s made of butternut. I used his first set of golf clubs for the coat hooks. The rail on the shelf is made with golf tees. The golf balls are friction fit into holes. He’s been working on golf courses since he was 13 and is currently the assistant superintendent at a course in Dayton, OH. Wasn’t too hard to find a theme for this project!

Both projects were a lot of fun to build and were learning experiences. Hopefully the next ones won’t have as many challenges!

Man, what a bowl. I wish I knew turning. The finish is too much (in a good way).

I always like different and your coat rack is no exception. How did you keep the golf heads from swiveling around???

Great ideas…..................

Thanks redryder. The golf clubs are just held in place with epoxy. I backed up the butternut with some plywood behind it so there’s an inch and a half of material to hold the cut shafts of the clubs. I saw a coat rack at a flea market made with the club heads for hooks and just took their idea a little farther. As far as finish, it’s just semi-gloss lacquer.
