  1. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  2. Custom Pushstick for Southern Woodworkers Makers Swap

    As a member of the Southern Woodworkers i am taking part in the annual Makers Swap, i was chosen to build a piece for the shop: A Glimpse Inside. The Makers Swap is a great way to grow camaraderie with fellow woodworkers by crafting a piece that another shop can either use or proudly display. A...

  4. Entryway Bench

    This project was what you would call "long term". It began well over a year ago with an idea/request from my Brother who wanted an entryway bench for his home. We talked about it for a while and then it kind of drifted away when I was asked to do other projects. Several months ago, a set of...
  5. Chestnut Tray

    I was fortunate to receive a few pieces of American Chestnut from an older church member. Her husband who was a woodworker in his younger days collected different woods on his travels around the country. He is now in his late 90's and most likely won't be doing anymore woodworking. This piece...
  6. Rustic Bowl from American Chestnut

    I got this piece of wood (and many others) at Longleaf Lumber while on a trip to Boston. They salvage timber from historic industrial and agricultural buildings around New England. While they couldn't give me specifics about where this piece of American chestnut came from, it was likely...
  7. 200 year old clock?

    Well, not 200 years old but the wood I used is reclaimed American Chestnut removed from a 200 year old house or so I was informed when I purchased the wood. Carefull planing left me some nice aging to the wood along with wormholes and other character that I was hoping to retain to give this...
  8. American Chestnut Tree Carving

    I carved this tree scene in a piece of American Chestnut. The camera didn't pick up all of the detail in the trunk in all of the pictures for some reason. The first picture shows it best. This carving is around 15" tall, 9' wide and 3/4" thick. I began this carving by drawing out the original...
  9. Four wall lamps

    This is a set of four wall lamps I made for my cabin. The backs are reclaimed American Chestnut log slabs salvaged from the siding of the cabin when I was renovating it; the arms are mountain laurel. The 6" pierced tin lampshades I found at a flea market, and I used 3/4" copper pipe to cover...
  10. Cutting Board with a Twist

    Another cutting board using evil pine…...then took a torch to the sides! Was kinda reluctant to burn sides but after sanding surface of burned area then adding mineral oil I kinda like it :)
  11. American Chestnut Briefcase

    This is pretty much the last of my chestnut. Made for a friend to carry his pencil art drawings in. He uses a plastic, portable typewriter case now. Hopefully this will be an upgrade for him. It's a surprise. The box measures 17" x 14" x 4" and has brass hinges and latches. I used small...
  12. Forever - Ibis

    I am learning to carve onto my turnings. This one is made of American Chestnut The top was turned on vacuum and the circle was sandblasted, the 2 Ibis were pyro'd to outline the birds. On the back an inner square frame was also sandblasted and a Chinese Character (meaning FOREVER) was incised...
  13. Reclaimed Barn Wood Bar Clamp Tables

    These tables are pieces of 4/4 reclaimed American Chestnut siding that we got from a barn we tore down in PA. It's an original design of mine for a customer who wanted a reclaimed table they could break down easily for trade shows. It's welded galvanized pipe with bar clamp heads and caster...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    A bit ago I posted about an American chestnut tree that recently died. I dropped it this past weekend so here are some pictures. I was bummed that the center rotted out but there will still be lots of good wood coming from it. Last picture is for the wood turners out there- bowls specifically...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    Hello, I have a chance to purchase about 10, 8 foot long 4" x 4" rustic american chestnut beams that came out of an old barn. I want to make something with them but I am unsure of what. I want to be able to sell the project and I want to make something that people would appreciate the type of...
  16. Hand Tools
    Hello. I want to buy some O1 tool steel bars for making plane irons and other tools and am looking for a good source to buy some. I have found 2 places online but the shipping was just as much as the product and one did not tell me the shipping prices. I live in Ontario Canada, so if someone...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have one of those 32" diameter pedestal shop fans that just started getting hot and shutting down until it cools off. Then it starts again and runs for a while, shuts down….. I took the case off and blew it out with compressed air (but it really wasn't vey dirty). This is an essential tool but...
