  1. Repeating Curve Walking Sticks

    I try to do different projects to make sure I can justify my various tools. These are from 2×4's of cedar, redwood and fir. I simply draw out the pattern, cut it out with a jig saw, run up and down each side with a router and a 3/4" round over bit to make what, essentially, is just a very bent...
  2. Bentwood Ring using Macassar Ebony with Crushed Bronze Glass Accent Inlay

    I used a crushed glass accent inlay since the malachite has been doing so well. It is much more subtle than most inlays but when exposed to light it really "pops"! I plan to use this material for full inlays as well for anyone wanting a unique and classy look. I really respect the skill and...
  3. White Tulipwood Ring with Spalted Maple Lining

    I received some veneer samples recently, and among a lot of pretty sheets was this one white tulipwood. I'm 90% sure that dye has been used here but it looks so natural and the white-on-white figuring has transitions that resemble a light bronze metal. I couldn't be happier with the finished...
  4. Philadelphia High Back Windsor

    I made this chair as part of the same class as my pal, Fred Dudak, at the Windsor Institute with Michael Dunbar. Fred's chair was more refined than mine when I left-he's got more of the chairmaker knack. But I did a little work on my knuckles and redeemed myself a little! Delicate...
  5. 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. :)
  6. bent picture stand

    When making the cutting board I had some very thin strips of oak and cherry left from initial milling of the wood. I had seen this design over at Wood Working for Mere Mortals. I used a piece of 2×4 to make a s curve mold and then laminated 6 strips together with the center only half height. You...
  7. Bent Wood Ring

    I started out making the "sandwich" laminated style. After much trial and error I made a few that held up for a couple of months and one that has made it about a year now. But I still was not happy with the strength of the laminated ones though I prefer the look so I found an easy way to make...
  8. Retro-Modern Sideboard With Bent Ash

    This is my favorite project thus far and first I'm posting to this forum. A lot of the questions I originally had were answered through reading discussions of others with similar questions. Everything from WHICH GLUE??? (my favorites) to tips on bending wood. Of all of the research I did, I...
  9. Bentwood Rosewood Ring Jewelry

    Bending wood is hard…until it's soft. ;) Not sure how many girls are on this forum but no matter. I have enjoyed looking at many awesome projects here and thought to throw some of mine into the mix. This is my first bentwood ring I ever sold and it was a huge hurdle for me as it took lots...
  10. Macassar Ebony Bentwood Ring

    I am new to this wonderful wood loving community at LumberJocks and hope you all enjoy some of my recent bentwood ring projects I plan to post in my projects. This Macassar Ebony wood ring was crafted using the bentwood method with a very thin copper inlay. I created this specifically for men...
  11. 62" dia. Alpine Dining Table

    This is the Alpine, one of my semi-custom tables. Shown here in solid maple. Custom color stain with Target Coatings EmTech 9300 on top. The base is a full 1" thick solid maple with HDF support inside and the apron is also maple that we bent in shop. I don't have any construction pix, but...
  12. Grilling Plank

    I'm more of a furniture maker, but just thought I'd share this with y'all. I purchased some Red Grandis for a furniture project. Most of the wood was acceptable with a bit of work … no big deal. However, there was a 2 ft piece that was giving me grief. I would flatten it to ¾"and within a day...
  13. Hickory Bucket

    Hickory Bucket; twelve tapered staves, bent wood handle and dado inset bottom. Approx 12 inches tall with poly finish. I have made many of these out of pine, cedar, oak, walnut, and hickory. Each stave is cut with the table saw set at 15 degrees and tapers from 3 inches wide at the top to 2.5...
  14. Wall mounted music stand V. 2

    The first version of this bent wood stand that was posted a while back (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/80155) was cut from a single piece of wood. Aside from wasting a lot of wood, the grain pattern at the bend makes that a very weak area. The cross bars were also built flat. This version is...
  15. 3 Bentwood Rings

    First off, let me give full credit to fellow Lumberjock "Heavy" (http://lumberjocks.com/Heavy) and his post on how to make your own bentwood ring (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/91767). I don't know how to "tag" him in the project, if anyone else could, I would love for him to see my first...
  16. 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
  17. Wooden Crane

    This is wooden crane that I built for my Grandson two years ago. I got the plans from Wood Magazine. I also purchased the hardware kit which included the wheels. It is made from Walnut and Maple. I altered the cab size a little so that he could place one of his Lego figures in it. It was fun to...

  18. Copper ring with bent wood

    Not much to say other than this is my first copper ring with bent wood. next time I think I won't have copper extend beyond the sides of the bent wood. Sorry there are no other pictures
  19. Music stand

    This was my last project at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport Maine last year. This part of the class was all about curves. About the only part of the stand I could have built before the class was the flat piece of wood that the music actually sits on. The stand was built...
  20. Barn to Horse Box

    Here is another Nordic-style Fjord horse tine box designed by Jim Anderson and featured in issue #139 of American Woodworker magazine. The wood came from a friend's 100+ year peg style old barn. Her father passed away, and now his beloved barn had succumbed to the forces of Mother Nature and...
