  1. 'CherryCows' Native Flute - Birdseye Maple

    (WOW - I just got an email yesterday from this group for the first time in 5 years! Seems, that somehow my account had been put in limbo by the system….glad to be back! I have updated my profile.) This Native Flute is made of Birdseye Maple. The second photo shows the Fetish-block that sits...
  2. Diamond

    This is a large barrel shaped vessel that is going to be used as a cookie jar by the guy i sold it to. It consists of a solid cherry bottom, spalted quartered gum segmented lower and upper, the middle ring is segmented and is cherry and birds eye maple. Also a band segmented walnut between the...
  3. Birdseye maple picture frames

    I bought these watercolors of the 4 Seasons during a business trip to Shanghai a couple of years ago. They aren't expensive fine art, but I thought they would be worthy enough of some proper frames. Wife got them professionally mounted on foam core, then I took over. The wood is birdseye...
  4. Earring Box

    This is a box I made for a pair of earrings I bought for my wife for Christmas. This box was the most fun I've had with a project in a long time. Very simple in it's construction and very small. The box is red cedar and birdseye maple with a cherry lip to help seat the lid. Finish is shellac...
  5. Derby Walking Cane

    Here is a Derby Style Walking Cane I made for a good friend's brother who was turning 70. My friend wanted something special so we discussed some ways to personalize it . He went on to tell me a story that when they were kids he would raid his brother's coin collection to go and buy candy and...
  6. "Spiker"

    So I thought to myself…why not do a design where the splines support the legs. It seemed a little uncommon but I knew I could make it work….and the design work for "Spiker" began. To make it even more of a challenge I made the shape of the box taper upwards. By doing this each of the three...
  7. Krenov inspired cabinet.

    Recently I read a couple of James Krenov's books, which I think every woodworker should, and this really made me want to build something like his. I found plans from FWW for a Krenov style cabinet, and modified them a bit. This is a commission for a friend to be a whiskey display cabinet and...
  8. Bluetooth Birdseye Speakers

    I'm a pretty lucky dad to have a great son and daughter, so this was their Christmas presents this year. No re-purposed wood for this one, just the good stuff….Birdseye Hard Maple. Sorry for the different lighting on the photos, had a bit of a time trying to capture the grain. Also a few of...
  9. Plane addicted

    Well I went by a new lumber place and they had a beautiful chunk of east indian rosewood. I couldn't help myself. So I snagged it up and took it to the shop. Since lately I've been addicted to hand planes what better way to use such a nice chunk of wood. So here it is. It's about 8" long, the...
  10. "Fineline"

    I left my job of 22 years and started working at a start up company so shop time has been hard to come by but I squeezed this one in. My friend owns a local tattoo studio and asked if I would participate in an art exhibit he was going to have. I had an idea for a tattoo machine based box for a...

  13. My first cane

    A little while ago, my mother asked me to make her a cane. She has a bad knee and when walking any distance she usually uses a walker. But it's not always practical or necessary to have the walker, so she wanted a cane just to take some weight off when walking short distance. I don't have a...
  14. Saturday’s Shop Time

    Yesterday I posted the maple burl bowl that is in the center of these 3. In the description I mentioned that I turned 3 bowls yesterday. Here is all 3. Left is butternut, center is maple burl and right is Birdseye maple. The smallest is 10"x 3". The butternut and Birdseye are on here for the...
  15. "Stormy Night in the Mountains"

    Stormy Night in the Mountains started life with an email conversation between a friend and I. He was looking for a special birthday gift for his girlfriend and wanted me to design a jewelry box for her. The fact that they live in Colorado and are big "outsiders" played a large part in the...
  16. Segmented Bowl

    Segmented bowls are as easy or complicated as you want to make them. This is only the second one I've made and it was a very straightforward process. I recommend using painters tape to assemble all the segments. That way you can glue them up rapidly then assemble the whole stack and clamp it...
  17. Wedding Pens

    Wedding Pen Production! Here are the results of a recently completed project. A buddy of mine (the groom) wanted to give his groomsmen a custom pen as a gift for taking part in the wedding ceremonies. After some back & forth, he wanted to get cigar pens (chrome finish) made with cherry. Well...
  18. Mahogany Machinist ToolBox

    A Custom sized machinist toolbox to house lathe tools including larger quick change tool holders, threading toolings, centers, chucks, and other gauges and machining tools. I was not able to find any toolbox that would fit some of my tools so decided to make my own, while at it, why not use...
  19. First Go at a Carved Box

    I have been wanting to get around to trying a carved box for over a year, and I'm finally done-done with my first attempt. I used walnut and birdseye maple for the body, birdseye maple for the pull, splines and tray support, and flame box elder for the tray. A lot of lessons learned, but...
  20. "Blur"

    If you saw my last project you would understand this one a bit more. I am hooked on the process of turning old hood ornaments into sculptural pieces…of course some of them naturally are. I call this piece "Blur" and it uses a 1959-64 Nash Rambler hood ornament. The process starts by making a...
