  1. Jewelry Box Times Deux

    I'm still playing around with different styles of boxes, although I'm generally committed to boxes with legs just because they provide a nice place to experiment with alternate construction methods and materials. These two boxes are identical except for the wood used on the corners. Dimensions...
  2. Lichtenberg Pattern Jewelery Box

    After playing with the wood burning technique introduced to me by Jim Jakosh I decided to put the results into a project. The overall outside box dimensions are 11.5" x 7.5". The top overhangs about an additional inch on each side. The top is 7/8" thick, but the steep taper makes it look a lot...
  3. Desktop Organizer

    This started out as another simple tissue box but I wanted to add some "space", kind of like what I did with my previous remote control caddy, just smaller. I made a set of these, both the same. The wood is fumed white oak, apricot for the drawer front and top, walnut pull. It came out a bit...
  4. Simple Tissue Boxes

    Plenty of the smaller tissue boxes showing up here on the LJ, I though I'd give it a go with some scraps! The bases are finger jointed walnut and white oak, the top is from my dwindling stash of apricot. I had expected more contrast between the oak and walnut after finishing, oh well 8^) It...
  5. Необычная чаша из ветки абрикоса. Unusual bowl from the apricot branch.

    Hi, I decided to try to make a bowl from a branch of apricot. Since I had never did not do d this way before, I was a little scared. As the saying goes, my eyes are afraid and my hands are doing it. The length of the branch was 230 mm and the thickness was 120 mm. The manufacturing process is by...
  6. Candlestick from the apricot core

    Hi friends, For making this candlestick, I decided to use an apricot core, since it has a dark color and a very beautiful texture. At the end I covered it with oil. In my opinion it is very beautiful. Here is a link to the entire manufacturing process.
  7. Carving Knife

    Back in early December, my friend Dan and I talked about carving, and I pointed him at various Morakniv knives. Well, I had a few blades sitting here, and during my recovery from back surgery, I cut out some scales for one of them and made a knife for him. One side of the handle is apple from a...

  9. Beautiful apricot goblet

    Found a piece of apricot and decided to make a cup. In the end, I got a rather beautiful cup with natural edges. The cup's whisker is 120 mm and the diameter is 70. At the end I covered it with oil. Link to the manufacturing process.
  10. Live edge cutting board

    I milled up a batch of fruitwood last year and it has been air drying since. Fruitwood is very difficult to dry well even if its stacked/stickered properly, end sealed and kept out of the sun. Virtually all of my boards cracked and warped. There was still a bit of useable wood in each peice...
  11. Apricot Stool

    In 2016, a large apricot tree in my yard that had been in declining health finally died over the winter. In North Dakota, the only apricots that can survive are more like plums than the ones you can buy in the grocery store, but still very tasty. The tree was at least twelve inches in diameter...
  12. Pyramid textured box

    This is one of those experiments that just happen every now and then. I'm a big fan of the Klausian (Kiefer) boxes and some time back I experimented with creating a surface that emulated his boxes of 1000 saw cuts. Anyway, I recently found this experiment while dusting the shop and it was a...
  13. Spin Top and Base

    I've been making finger spin tops for some time, but a customer challenged me to add a base so I gave it a whirl. This set is made in Apricot, one of my favorite woods to turn. Subtly chatter-worked on the top, and grooved rings on the dished base, which is 3-1/2" d. The top is about 2-1/8"...

  15. Mesquite Jewelry box

    This is another one of those "experiments" I like to try. The box just happened because I wanted to find a home for the lid. A tip o' the hat to Brian who posted the web link to MXC Design. This artist incorporates glass into their boxes and that is something I wanted to try out (just to see...
  16. Interior vases from different types of wood.

    Hello friends. Summer, a lot of work on different objects, but I try to set aside a little time for my favorite work in wood turning. Here I made several decorative vases from different types of wood. There is a nut, a plum, an apricot, an apple tree, who is interested in the manufacturing...
  17. A Spalted Ring Stash Box

    A day late to get on the shelf at the gift shop, but oh well 8^) Had a small plank of spalted maple kicking around the shop so I sliced off some veneers and tried to isolate the interesting sections to fit within a 3×10 frame. The box it self is a popular design method, basically a "U" shaped...
  18. Apricot Jewelery Box

    I've learned that some people just love to collect small, shiny objects and then they need a place to store them. Ergo I have again pursued this need and made another box. I made a earlier version with similar styling and it worked out well. Best thing in my mind is I again pre-finished the...
  19. Elm wal clock with turquoise inlay

    Elm wal clock with turquoise inlay. 11"x12"
  20. Busy weekend making pens!

    First pic is of a pen and pencil set that I did for a Habitat for Humanity fund raiser using dyed plywood. Pretty straight forward, except the pencil nib was all messed up. Thankfully I just bought a punch set on Friday so I was able to recover the pressed pieces and try numerous times! The...
