  1. Ambrosia Maple & Cherry Bed Side Tables

    Over the summer I built a cherry and maple bed frame, the next item on the list was a pair of matching bedside tables, next is a dresser. I wanted to give the tables and dressers some flair so I decided to use Ambrosia Maple for the tops and straight maple veneer on the drawer fronts. I wanted...
  2. Set of 4 Custom Coasters

    This is a set of handmade coasters I produced for a friend. She lives in and grew up around Rochester, NY, also known as "The Flower City" for their annual Lilac Festival. The woodburned design on the coaster holder is directly from the flag of the City of Rochester. The coasters are made from...
  3. First bowl; spalted ambrosia maple

    I wish I could say I turned this bowl by myself but I had help. I met a man ( Les ) who hosts a local wood turners club at his shop. I have been interested in turning for a while and started asking around to see if there was a club. He allowed me in to his shop and even his house and showed me...
  4. Wine rack

    Nice touch to add to the kitchen. This little piece was made from ambrosia maple and walnut. I also made the wine that in the rack.
  5. The Family that Makes Boxes Together...

    When the kids come home for a visit and notice the abundance of boxes throughout the house they can't help but want to make one themselves. I am always happy to take them out to the shop and walk them through the process. Since many parts of the process are dangerous, I may do most of the...
  6. Ambrosia maple, walnut and cherry varmint/target stock

    I carved this stock this morning. It's the third attempt to getting it carved… The problem was carving the outside of one design and then switching the patterns and carving the interior. Or inletting the stock. The original stock pattern was cut to fit a Remington 700 BDL with a varmint...
  7. Spalted Ambrosia Maple Chalice

    The wood came from a maple in my neighborhood (the community owns about 10 acres of woods surrounding the development). I stabilized the spalted areas with low viscosity quick epoxy as much as I could when they were uncovered during the turning. It's sanded to 600 grit on the outside and 400...
  8. Abrosia Maple Bookmatched 1911 Grips

    Nothing Fancy. Just killing time while the glue set on a couple of projects.
  9. ?Ambrosia Maple? Tealight holders

    So, I busted some pallets apart and started planing the boards down. I found one board, that folks on here, called ambrosia maple. I didn't have enough to make anything significant, so I tried my hand a some small items. I think I prefer making larger items, it is easier to hide the...

  11. Otis the Minpin Scrollwork

    This was made as a gift to my wife for her birthday earlier this month. Otis was a Miniature Pincher that my wife was introduced to as a very tiny puppy. He spent his entire life with her and became her closest friend. I am fairly sure that if she would have had to choose between myself or...
  12. Ambrosia Maple bowl with Danish oil and poly finish

    I started on this bowl a couple of weeks ago. I picked up a piece of Ambrosia Maple from the local WC and wanted to see what effect Danish oil would have on it. SWMBO had been working with a couple of pieces of it but didn't want to loose the blue colored streaks from the ambrosia. worked out...
  13. mahogany/ambrosia maple jewelry chest

    I made this for my 13 year old daughter. It's far from perfect, but she likes it. I've had the ambrosia maple for about 2 years trying to decide what to use it for. I lined all the drawers with the velvet that she picked out. I've got the knobs on order. They should be here first of the week...
  14. Two Kids, Two Weddings, Two Keepsake Boxes

    Both of our kids got married this year (son in August, daughter in November) to wonderful spouses, and I (in consultation with my wife) built these keepsake boxes for them as wedding gifts. They're made of walnut and ambrosia maple, finished with boiled linseed oil and shellac. The hinges are...
  15. Ambrosia Maple/Walnut Tool Caddy

    One of my successful designs so far. This is a nice and large tool caddy. It measures 17" by 9", 9 1/2" tall. The sides are Ambrosia Maple and the ends Walnut. This handle is Birch and the bottom is Lyptus (for durability). I made one with an Osage Orange handle and that was the first one to...
  16. LP Coffee Table

    I built this table as a gift for a friend's birthday. Simple MDF frame with plywood drawers and a wormy maple/glass top. I built a sort of shadowbox or recess under the top glass and put records in it. I got the idea from another project I saw on LumberJocks: I took it one step further and...

  18. Bowls

    These are just a few of the bowls I've made in my spare time. The first four pictures are two pieces of Ambrosia Maple I had lying around that my wife requested me to turn into bowls. The last two pictures are a bowl I made out of a cherry log I had acquired when I bought an old craftsman lathe...
  19. Ambrosia Maple and Walnut Box w/Shaped Lid

    The other week a great woodworker I follow up YouTube, Sean, over at SimpleCove channel had posted a video of a project he created which this is a complete copy of, not my design whatsoever. He was kind enough to shoot me over dimensions last week so I went for it. One of my first projects...
  20. Bowl #2

    This is the second bowl I ever turned. It is spalted ambrosia maple from the same log as my first bowl. I turned the outside between centers ( I don't have a chuck ) and started on the inside. That's when I started having problems. It's kind of hard to cut it out with the tailstock in the way...
