  1. Projects Media stand - Cherry, Curly Koa, Curly Maple

    This is a project I began about a year ago and recently completed so I figured a video was in order. Gotta' warn you this is a long video but it includes almost every step of the build process, including mistakes, midstream modifications, design changes, etc. Since the video is so long I have...
  2. Metal & Wood Unite

    I am really enjoying mixing the hardness of metal and softness of wood in my rings. Planning to add more metals like 316L stainless steel and titanium to the mix of some new exotic woods. The endless combinations and possibilities will keep me busy and out of trouble for a long time. :)

  4. Bent Lamination Pendant Lights

    I used bent lamination to make these awesome modern pendant lights. This method of bending wood involves making a form and gluing up thin strips of wood veneers to achieve the bend you are looking for. I made 3 different size lights, 5 total for my house, which meant cutting out 65 veneers. Bent...
  5. Cutting board

    I need to get out of the cutting board business. Either that, or I need to just start making easier ones. But then friends always ask me for one and I feel like I can't turn them down. One thing I've learned while making these "3D" cutting boards is that I haven't really gotten better at...
  6. Bentwood Rosewood Ring with Malachite Inlay

    One of my first stone inlays using malachite. I love making bentwood rings and adding other raw materials from nature just makes it that much enjoyable. Any of you guys and gals have ideas for other raw material beyond the ordinary that I could attempt to inlay on my bentwood rings? Shannon

    Both links are completely safe. I've been looking at them for a while now - trying to build up the courage to attempt my first ukulele build. This first link has a great picture tutorial - the "how to" for the Rosette Inlaying is AMAZING. There is some really unique/cool jigs in here, as well...

    I have a design floating around in my head that I'd really like to make. This piece requires curving many of the pieces of wood to achieve the look and design that I'm shooting for. Since I've never created a piece with bent wood in it, I've been trying to study up on the subject a bit. There...

    Dear colleagues, Perhaps someone encountered this problem before: The friend of mine asked to straighten box lid which has been made about 70 years ago. The box is very dear to him and before leaving this lid in the clamps for another 30 years, I am wondering if anyone would have any better...

    Taking Inventory Long, long ago I used to make guitars. Forty years later I'm thinking, can I still to it? I break out the stuff I put into storage in my early twenties and see what I still have to work with getting ready for a winter pandemic, "one more guitar", build. This video is the story...

    Bent lamination in detail I was asked by a fellow Lumberjocker to further detail the process of bent lamination. I am sure that there are many of you FAR more qualified to document this then I but in the spirit of sharing knowledge and to honor a request I have blogged this process in a more...

    How To: Bentwood Rings I started to tag this on to someone else's project post but thought they might not appreciate me hijacking their thread. So here it goes: HOW TO BUILD A (BEGINNER'S) BENTWOOD RING: 1) Soak your thin veneer of choice in some water for a while. It doesn't even have to be...

    Share some skill with me. Within the next week or so I'm going to try some simple, I hope, steam bending and I would like advice from those who are more expert than I am. I understand the basics the hows and whys. I read some articles on how to do it but I guess what I need is what to expect. I...
  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Something new I'd like to try, however I've never worked with exotics and steam. Any tips on which exotic lumbers are good to use and which I should stay away from? Thanks in advance for any advice! ps…if I've put this into the wrong forum, let me know. I'm still figuring that part out
