  1. A Little Tear

    This is a hexagonal Tabouret that I designed to sit next to my arm chair. It's made of Beech, an under appreciated and under utilized, domestic species. The marquetry is a 1,2,4 basket weave pattern with a tear in it and bees coming through onto the surface. I'm extremely pleased with...

  10. Woodturning
    I saw this video on WoodTurners Resource website. I thought it was a great way to make segmented pieces. There are four videos by Jerry Bennett. Very clever and simple.
