  1. Ambrosia maple bowl

    Most recent bowl, this time about 6" diameter, 3" deep from ambrosia maple. Sanded to 600 grit, wiped with Danish Oil, then buffed and waxed on the Beall buffers. Wall thickness is about 3/16" on this one. Reverse chucked on that 1/8" recess. Might have been pushing it a little, but I love the...

  4. Classical and Asian Jewelry Box

    This is the result of my girlfriend's school project. She had to synthesize two things from different aspects of culture. I convinced her to make something and this is what resulted. I guided her in the preperation and got her to help out all along the way so that she could be fairly graded...

  6. Padauk & Ambrosia Maple Coffee Table

    Just got finished with this Padauk & Ambrosia Maple coffee table and I actually remembered to take work pics this time!

  8. Ambrosia Maple Bentwood Rings - Look Ma, no tools!

    So, about two weeks ago, I heard of these 'bentwood rings'... and, even though I had no idea what they were, or how to make them, I figured I would do a few minutes of research, and try my hand at it. Well, I've been practicing a bit, and these are the first three that I'm decently pleased with...
  9. Family Birthdays Plaques, Wall Hangings

    I have started trying to sell some crafts and such on Etsy. These were a quick finish project. They don't take long to make and the return is about 85-90% because I use lumber I find. These are Ambrosia Maple (pallet find) and clean maple (I think). The rest of the materials cost me about...
  10. Ambrosia Maple Bentwood Ring.

    Still practicing… I have a lot of this maple, and since it's easy to work with, I've been doing all of my practice with it. I don't really know how to do inlay yet… so instead, I positioned one of the streaks in the maple to make a nice offset line… it's definitely not the same, but it's the...
  11. A Bundle of Boards

    This is a bunch of cutting boards I just sold to some customers for Christmas presents. The striped ones are all different combinations of walnut, maple, and padauk. Two of the square designs are made from walnut, maple and mahogany and the other two are walnut, ambrosia maple, and mahogany. The...

  14. Pallet Wood from work

    Got this from one of the wooden pallets at work. Unsure of the species, look like the texture of maple or cherry but could be anything really. This is the top half of it. From time to time I find some interesting looking wood amond these pallets. Any ideas on what to make with it. Only 1 board.
  15. Growth chart #...... well another growth chart

    Got roped into making another growth chart for one of my friends from high school, my wife promised one from me for a baby shower gift. The ruler was made out of a gorgeous peice of ambrosia stained quilted maple, I didn't want too blond of wood so I dismissed the maple pile at first but my...
  16. I LOVES ME SOME SPALTED WOOD!

    I visited my son in Quantico, Virginia last month. While there I inquired around about places where I might pick up some unique or pretty wood. I was referred to a place about 20 miles away and made a bee-line for it. I got there about 15 minutes before they closed and when I walked into the...
  17. Small Jewlery Box for my Wife

    I had some leftover scrap cherry which contained the wain off a board and so I practiced resawing it into two 3/8" thick slices. Then our woodworkers club was having a workshop on Finger Joints so I thought I'd take my cherry slices over to make finger joints on them. There was one thing...
  18. Assorted Small Bowls

    On the left, my first try with Ambrosia Maple. It is only 4" or so across. I tried for a nice thin side and a more classic bowl shape. It's taking less time for each lather project now. In the middle; a small Lace wood bowl. Wow, this bowl took a lot of sanding! It kept feeling fuzzy until I...
  19. Kitchen Cabinets

    This is my project even though I had my husband make it for me. I wanted to get rid of the old dark wood cabinets that were put in by the builder. My husband came upon some lumber called Ambrosia Maple at a sawmill. So he started making the cabinets. This was a work in progress. I'm still...
  20. Pen Madness

    I really do like pens and I just realized that I have never posted any pen projects. The pens are from several different types of pen kits and a couple that aren't available any more (sadly). Imperial, Lotus, and Statesman are the larger pens and the two small ones are Wall Street II. The...
