  1. An Experiment

    So, this was a bit of an experiment. I've had this left over piece of maple that from stat to finish has been a joy to work with. Being green, it turned very well with little to no tear out, even with it being very figured. The wood started out almost white and difficult to see any of the...
  2. Bayou Gator

    This project is a custom order. I have never done a gator before so it was interesting. The picture itself is made of 5/8" Walnut. It is 15" long and just right at 12" tall at the top of the bark, with the base. Live edges on the top. I also modified the pattern as I wanted to keep the...
  3. *SOLD* Olive Burl Wine Rack

    I had a second piece of Olive and decided to make myself a wine rack that matched the Olive top Pub Table that I made last month. The top is Olive, the legs are Boire, the racks are Moabi, and the finish is teak oil. I am super pleased with the result. It's almost unfair using wood this...
  4. Toomer's Corner Oak - Auburn, AL

    I am a 3rd generation Auburn University alum in my family. My love for Auburn is rooted in family tradition started 70 years before I was even thought of. In 2010, while I was a student, the beloved oak trees on the corner of College and Magnolia were poisoned by a crazy, angry rival fan. This...
  5. Farie Cottage

    Was digging through the woodpile and decided to make a farie cottage. Used a small hickory limb for the cottage trunk and bradford pear bark for the roof. Very relaxing to make, no rules, and it can become whatever your imagination spits out. Put it in our Etsy shop. We'll see what happens...
  6. Natural Band Saw Box From A Log

    February, 2010-After some heavy duty pruning on a bush out back, I figured I could turn a chunk of it into a band saw box. Well, I did it! Not sure i would want to do many more of these, but I learn a thing or two doing this. For instance, the darker brown color is exactly how the wood looks...
  7. Large Oak Natural Edge Bowl

    This is a natural edge, end-grain bowl I made from an oak that was cut in my neighbourhood. It is almost 14" on it's largest dimension and only about 1/8" thick. Since I turned it green and it is so thin, when it dried it bent in a unique fashion. I got into woodturning about 1 1/2 years ago...
  8. Spalted natural edge bowl

    One month ago I attended, for the first time, the wood turner's club in Jacksonville, Florida. They had a lottery with prises including freshly cut wood trunk pieces. Since there were more prises than people participating, I managed to get two large pieces which I promptly put in my car. I was...
  9. rustic mulberry bench

    I was given a mulberry log last winter and had it sawn this spring. I stickered it in the loft of my barn which gets pretty hot in summer. I used a box fan to circulate the air. It seems fairly dry now. The bark edges seemed interesting so I wanted to try to use some of the pieces with the bark...
  10. Rustic Hickory Ring Boxes

    Here are some pictures of the small, rustic hickory ring boxes I've started making. These were made from hickory that had been sitting up for a few years now, so the pieces are quite dry. I like using hickory for these because it holds the bark extremely well. The lid swivels to open and can...
  11. Bark Inclusion Bowl

    Bigger the dog… louder the bark. I love how this bowl turned out! Looking at the log, I could appreciate that there was a branch collar around what appeared to be a previous pruning. I didn't appreciate, however, how the tree had tried to heal around the wound or how deep the resulting bark...
  12. 3rd Peppermill

    My third peppermill from Stringy Bark Elm. This is my best one so far and was fun to do.
  13. Fishing Expedition

    My wife asked me to make a bowl that would hold Swedish fish for a wedding shower that she was attending (don't ask…). So I made a fish-shaped bowl. It didn't make the cut, and she went with bowl #2. The third, bark-edged bowl was from the same log. Bowls are all in the 5"-6" diameter x 4"...
  14. Cherry Log Bowl

    This is the third bowl in my "Logs to bowls" series which highlights the natural bark and wood grain. This bowl was made from a left over slab from another project and shows how even "scraps" can become beautiful pieces. I think this highlights why many wood workers are loathe to discard those...
  15. Succulent Planters w/ Bark inclusion and Glitter

    This project is the second time that I have used glitter and CA to fill a void in a piece of wood. This project came about because I wanted to try the glitter/CA process again and because I was looking for a project that I could make to sell fairly quickly that would provide some practice at a...
  16. Cherry natural edge bowl

    Natural edge bowl from black cherry. This tree went down over last winter at a friend of a coworker's place. I have cut about 25 bowl blanks out of this tree and roughed them out. However, most of those are for conventional bowls. I tend to turn the NE bowls to finish when they are green and...
  17. Persimmon Natural Edge

    A natural edge persimmon bowl.
  18. "Spearhead"

    Definition of "Spearhead": a leading element, force, or influence in an undertaking or development Yes…I can design a box around that word….and that's how the design of Spearhead started. The body of Spearhead came from a chance encounter with a beautiful piece of Maple Burl I purchased from...
  19. Chinaberry Bark Inclusion Bowl

    Here is another piece from the Chinaberry that I recently acquired. It is the same tree/wood that I turned the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase. I am very happy with the great color in this piece. I was hoping for some of the same crazy grain that the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase has but that blank was...
  20. Natural Edge Cherry Bowl

    First cherry natural edge bowl. I like the way they look, as it turns out. This is also the first natural edge piece where I felt like I nailed some good form on both the interior and exterior.
