  1. Bandsaw "Puzzle" Box II--Triple Nesting Set--Amboyna (Narra)

    I can't believe I didn't post this sooner. So life goes… I made this as a wedding gift for a couple of my friends. It's made of Figured Narra, also known as Amboyna when it's in burl form. It's based on the same principle of construction as described here. I learned this technique firsthand...
  2. 2 Step Cutting Board

    This is an endgrain cutting board made out of maple, cherry, and walnut. I described the build process in a blog. It is a second generation board of this type for me. I have included pics of the four rotations of the board. I find it interesting how it is seen differently in the four views...
  3. Around the world by jewellery box

    Perhaps a jewellery box isn't the first thing you'd think of when contemplating a trip around the world (unless you are Kim Kardashian, perhaps). However, the box I made for a club fund-raising raffle provided a bit of globe trotting adventure, at least in the origins of the various timbers...
  4. Exotic wood "Sampler" name keychains

    This is a great way to show off all those exotic scraps you've been saving. BECKY is Amboyna Burl, Pau Amarello, Purpleheart, Zebrano and Paduak woods on a Walnut substrate. I stock over 25 hardwoods of exotic and domestic origin, so there are always little bits that need rescue from the landfill.

  6. Amboyna "Torch"

    This little vase is a piece that my wife requested. She had seen a similar shaped piece and went to the local Rockler to find a burl cap to give me for x-mas. Unfortunately the piece of red morrell she purchased was more suited to a bowl (wide and flat) than a vase. So I went and got a...
  7. A few pens

    I don't normally post my pens but I've done a few lately that I thought looked nice so here they are. All the kits are Flat-Tops. A few roller balls and a few fountain pens. 1) Blonde gmelia burl 2) Amboyna burl 3) Stablized maple burl 4) Crab apple Thanks for looking.
  8. Amboyna Burl Bowl

    This amboyna burl bowl posed a bit of a challenge as it really dulled my tools pretty quickly. In addition it required quite a bit of sanding to remove the remaining tearout which I couldn't get rid of with my gouges. Unfortunately, after spending six hours in the shop working on this bowl, I...
  9. Recent Orders and Experiments

    This is new and fun for me. I can not stand to throw away cool knots and weak burly pieces. So I now save them up for the slow times and experiment with adding new mediums. Wooden jewelry is IN. The first pic is of my standard keychains in Alexandrian Laurel, Bloodwood, Lauro Preto and Cuban...
  10. Amboyna Burl Jr. Gent II

    This is my first Jr. Gent rollerball. The Baron I posted yesterday was actually made almost 2 weeks ago. After that pen, over the last 2 weeks, I have been exhausting every possible way to fail at making a pen. My reject pile got bigger, I did turn out a nice 2-tone chrome Sierra (I don't have a...
  11. Amboyna Burl Maze.

    Just finished this last maze! I was able to make it even more complicated as i cut the channels even tighter together.
  12. Pierced Fretwork Pendants

    I recently made a trade of my work for a Hegner scroll saw, which I feel should properly be called an electric fretsaw. It is to my Tradesman scroll saw as Rolls Royces are to Yugos. I have only begun to experiment with its capabilities and possibilities. These pendants are about 3/8" thick...
  13. Ebony Cribbage Board with Amboyna Burl

    This cribbage board is my most requested design. This particular one is the most exquisite combination of woods I have used for one. The base is Gabon Ebony inlaid with Amboyna Burl. It's finished to a nice gloss with Formby's Tung Oil finish. It measures about 14" x 5".
  14. Tiered Cribbage Board

    When I create a new design for a cribbage board I like to think outside the box. Every cribbage board I've ever seen has been a flat rectangle. I thought of creating something more three-dimensional and this design flashed into my head. Using my favorite combination of Amboyna Burl and Gabon...
  15. Jewelry box

    Wood Whisperer jewel box made from figured black walnut, sapaele, with amboyna burl veneer inlay on lid.
  16. "My Soft Underbelly"

    I received an email through my website requesting a commissioned urn. She wanted an urn to hold the ashes of her departed son. When asked what aspects she was looking for in the urn she said that he liked working with metal. She also liked angles over curved surfaces. Early on she sent me a...
  17. LAVA

    LAVA This box was specially commissioned for an exhibition in US, 'Boxes and their Makers' - mirroring 'Celebrating Boxes' that I set up with another UK box maker and old friend, Peter Lloyd, back in 2001. Because of the extraordinary veneer that is its main feature this is a unique and never...
  18. Doors

    Inside doors.
  19. Amboyna Burl Heart

    Anniversary present for my wife. I wanted to make something simple and symbolic. I've had this piece of amboyna burl for 2 yrs and was saving it for something special. I drew the shape of the heart. Cut it out with the bandsaw. Used the oscillating drum sander to sand up to the line I had...
  20. Another Majestic pen

    The wood is Amboyna from Beartooth woods. The kit is from psi. And the finish is ca glue and friction polish. Thanks for looking.
