  1. A Balancing Dragon

    I'll start off by saying that I like Dragons, and one that can balance on the tip of my finger is interesting enough to post as a new project. The back story to this project started a number of years ago when I met up with a superbly talented Scrimshander, named Clay James, at an arts and crafts...
  2. Fescue, a balancing sculpture

    Hi everyone, This is a balancing sculpture I call, Fescue. Each of the three wooden blades is a carefully balanced pendulum, and each blade hangs from the next largest blade. If you give it a push, it spins and tumbles with a seemingly random and chaotic motion. It takes about 30 seconds to...
  3. Balancing Vase

    We'll, I ripped off choppertoo's balancing clock and tried a balancing vase from walnut and hickory scraps. I put the big triangle block on it to help weigh it down and try to add stability, but I don't feel like it made much difference. Due to the variable weight of flowers and water, I did...

Still gets lots of doubletakes when people see it. The board is a piece of Red Oak and not sure what the hammer is made of. I sprayed them both with...
  7. Wine Bottle Holders

    What do you do when you are waiting for the glue to dry up on a couple panels for another project? You make magic balancing wine bottle holders. They are made up of some scrap purple heart I had sitting around. I made about six out of MDF before I figured out the appropriate dimensions to...
  8. Finishing
    I have been working on my first real wood project. It is a aquarium stand that is pine frame with oak boards as a "wrap". I stained the oak using a Minwax oil stain, I did add two coats to the oak boards and three coats to the cabinet door centers as they did not stain as dark. I did notice...
