  1. American Elm Natural Edge Bowl

    This was a fun to turn natural edge bowl with a mystery wood that I later determined to be American Elm. The wood was found in a pile of cut wood on the side of a residential street, with no leaves to look at to help with species identification. I turned this bowl within a week of its being cut...

  3. Special needs chair

    Gentleman came and said that he needed a chair for his wife. She had a stroke and couldn't manage the chairs at the dinner table.

  6. Work bench, 85+ years in the making

    I guess you could say this was a family project. The top of this workbench came from an American Elm tree my Grandfather's brother planted in 1935. My Grandpa then transplanted the tree to his farm in 1940. My Grandpa passed in 2003 and my Grandma had to move from the farm in 2008. The...
  7. Saltbox

    Had some free time between projects, so I made this saltbox today from Bolivian Rosewood and American Elm. I used a 3-3/8 diameter forstner bit to drill out the inside and I cut the shape on the band saw. Himalayan salt included.
  8. Green Elm Wood Bowl Project

    Twice a week I drove by my favorite firewood yard to no avail. I was running out of green wood to turn when two tons of Elm arrived. Logs were up to 3 feet in diameter and weighed up to 350 lbs because of the high water content. It took two pickup loads to satisfy my eagerness to try turning...

    This is my first bandsaw box. It's made from an 28 inch American Elm tree trunk taken down on West Chicago Street in Rapid City, South Dakota about 5 years ago. The wood was turned into flitches on a bandsaw mill in Spearfish, South Dakota owned by woodworker Larry Kellogg. It was produced...
  10. Elm Valet

    First project made for myself other than shop projects: a valet made of American Elm stock graciously sent to me by LJ member Paul Miller a couple of years ago. If you check my projects, you'll see that this is my second valet - the first was given to my grandson. Stained with MinWax Pecan stain...
  11. American Elm Small Bowl and Vase

    I was getting some turning practice with a couple of pieces of American Elm I had stashed away, and these are the results. I just wiped a 2nd coat of BLO on them before taking the photo… not sure what the final finish will be.

  14. Fly Fishing Net

    I was asked by the local brew master to make a fly fishing net for his father, who is an avid fly fisher. He wanted a custom net, so I made a drawing and after making changes to his request, I started. Having never made a net before, I tapped into some of the fishing net videos and realized it...
