  1. curly maple +hardwood Knife Scales

    Only made the handles- but check out these chef knife xmas gifts. video below :)
  2. End-grain Black Palm Euro pen

    This pen was turned from glued up slices from a 2×2 billet of black palm so that the endgrain would show. It was necessary to shape the glued up blank with a rasp prior to turning as the slightest catch of the roughing gouge sent chunks and needle-like palm missiles flying from the blank. Once...
  3. "A Prayer for My Brother" Firefighter Wood Intarsia

    After I did the last piece to honor the military, I thought I would do the same for some other professions that deserve our thanks and remembrance. All of these men and woman that put their lives on the line to protect us deserve the upmost respect from all of us. I'm making the pattern for...
  4. Black Palm Sphere

    Short description: Needed a handle for the infeed bed on jointer… made this. Thanks ... ... Long description: I really like the grain of Black Palm (who doesn't?). Anyway I got this small block of wood as a cut off from a friend years ago, and cherished it until I knew what to do with it. I...
  5. Fallen Hero Intarsia Wall Hanging

    In some small way, I hope this lets the people who put their lives on the line to protect us know that we appreciate what they do for us. In talking to some people while making this, it seems some forget that Police Officers are not just there on the highway to give us a speeding ticket. When...
  6. A Choice for Kinky Literates.

    Boys and Girls, After my previous presentation of a few "pens" for illiterates, I thought it was time to prove that there is diversity in the literary profession and you just don't need to stick to the keyboard or those simple run of the mill writing implements. While there has been an...
  7. Chalk one up.

    Boys and Girls, Found with the introduction of C19, I'm starting to regress as I find using my fountain pen progressively challenging. With all this bloody politically correct propaganda, I could no longer find a reliable supplier of Indian Ink for my pen(s)... yep, that's real blotting...
  8. Asian-Style Jewelry Box

    I was recently inspired to create rustic jewelry box and I searched the Internet for ideas. What I found was the following project on Lumberjocks, and ironically, the designer had challenged other woodworkers to make variations of the design. My motivation was to make a gift for my wife and to...
  9. Black Palm Pens

    Well I got a mini lathe for my birthday and have since becom extrmemly addicted to this. I am having a ball turning pens and other small things. These are 2 of my favorites made of Black Palm. The first one is a Black Chrome Patriot Pen and the second is the first Black Palm I ever turned...
  10. Black Palm pens

    Nothing too special or crazy here. I just made 2 black palm pens from very similar kits. I really like the look of black palm, but I found it very challenging to turn without shattering it. After having a pen blow out, I slowed down and tried again with this pair of pens. My goal was to get...
  11. Cardboard Concept to Wooden Box Reality

    I was messing around trying to think what to do with some scraps I had sitting around. I grabbed some cardboard and started cutting mock ups of different designs. This is what I came up with. I decided to make a box to hold two decks of cards. I had made a larger card/dime/game box last year for...
  12. Keepsake Box

    I take each family member to the woodworker's store and have them wander through the stock and find a board that they like top make their special keepsake box from. Well, this time my daughter picked out a piece of Black Palm. Having never worked with Black Palm, I was in for a big surprise...
  13. Mystery

    This is my entry in the wooden jewelry contest. Its a brooch that is also a magnetic key to open the box. The box is locked when the brooch is in the face of the box.Turn the brooch and it releases the magnet from the spring loaded catch and allows you to pop it off and wear it. How it works...
  14. Celtic Knot for Golf Buddy

    I have a golf buddy that moved to North Carolina over the summer and I wanted to make him something for his new home. He will also have 10 years sober next month so this is what I came up with. I made a box for him to hold his anniversary coins and daily meditation book. Material - The body is...

    This is my first commission (okay, it was a request from my wife)... a display case for her marathon medals. Lacewood and Black Palm, finished with Teak oil. (24" x 24")
  17. Trinket Box With Wooden Hinges

    This was my first attempt at this type of hinge. I was pretty happy with it when I dry fitted them, but when I glued them in place, the one on the right didn't fully seat. It stuck out maybe 1/16". I thought "No problem, the clamps will seat it.", but with the wax paper and caul in place, I...
  18. CanyonLands

    CanyonLands is the first in a series of boxes that will feature two new designs. 1-The first is the inset panel which wraps all four sides. I did this by routing a recess about 3/8'' deep in the walnut and inserted solid myrtlewood about 7/16'' thick. This allowed me to plane it all flat down...
  19. First Time Bowtie

    Video here: This is part of a shelving project and it has been getting big so I am splitting it up! The first video shows putting a bowtie in a beautiful but cracked piece of live edge olive wood. I wanted the surface to be solid so I also radiused and filled the crack with clear epoxy resin...
  20. Black Palm Rod Handle and Fore Grip

    A new obsession has taken hold…. a repair turned in to an inspiration. This Black Palm was predestined to become a couple of pens ..along with a terrible waste of wood being simply turned away…. then I saw this Fuji reel seat sitting empty and alone. The lower portion showed grain alot more...
