  1. My roots are my anchor

    To me an anchor enchants me with many thoughts. Sometimes, very similar to they way a tree does. It reminds me of strength, life, journey, blessings, and dependance. I have always wanted to make one and decided that black walnut was a nice choice of wood. It's darkness reminds me of the depth of...

  3. Black Walnut, Maple and Purpleheart Segmented Bowl

    This bowl was my first commission piece. I was asked to make a special bowl. The customer gave me no instruction on wood color/type and asked me to just come up with something interesting that he could give his mother on her birthday. The bowl is fairly basic. Twelve segment rings. (I'm...
  4. "California Recall"

    As we were about to leave my families house after the Thanksgiving holiday my mother ran down into the basement. She came back up with something in her hand and asked if I wanted it or she was going to throw it out because she didn't know what it was. I can't blame her…It was a 16 year old...

  6. "Vertebrae"

    The announcement for the winter woodworking awards came at a very good time for me. I was just beginning to get back into the shop after taking some time away to heal myself. Last February I had a bad fall that resulted in a non-dislocated fracture of the sacrum….not fun and nothing that can...

  9. more boxes for show

    I get very little black walnut. So for those of you offended by my leaving some sapwood on here , it was a small tree so I was trying to stretch it as far as i can. I do like the contrast though. The lids are old oak with with black walnut hinges. The inner trays are old poplar. Missing hinge...
  10. Custom pen case

    I made this pen case for someone who wanted it for their boyfriend because he loves pens. The wood is black walnut, the finish is shellac. I used felt for the pen holders, and the pen trays can be easily removed and replaced when necessary. I don't have a picture of this, but it is also...
  11. Black Walnut Home Bar

    This bar was a cooperative effort between myself and a buddy for his basement den. He brought me a big walnut log to cut up on my sawmill. Everything was kiln-dried and then the preparation began. He had the bar top sanded in a wide belt sander and then began cleaning the natural edges. I took...
  12. Coffe Table for Mothers day present (7 years in the making!)

    This is really one of my first woodworking project since I started it in highschool (15 years ago!), although I didn't finish it until about 7 years after (8 years ago). I started the legs in highschool not having any idea how much work they would be. After highschool I didn't feel I had the...

  15. Maple/Walnut/Wormy Dresser

    Thanks for checking it out, it's a dresser for my our one on the way. There's also going to be a small frame that will sit on top to allow for changing table. I couldn't justify building something just for changing, didn't seem worth it. The dresser is full sized, based off dimensions of our...
  16. Black walnut double bed

    After visiting a couple rustic furniture stores looking for a new bed set I decided to save some money and attempt to do the project on my own. After taking a walk in the woods I was lucky enough to find a under rooted black walnut tree. The tree was already dead but not dried out enough. So...
  17. Intarsia Heron's

    Last month I made my second intarsia Heron for a girlfriend of mine in Southern Ca. She absolutely loves the bird (Heron). Awhile back I made my first one out of a piece of pine destined for our wood stove. When I saw the colors in this wood I thought this would be perfect for a "Blue Heron" I...
  18. Nakashima Style End Table

    This is the last of the black walnut that I have. The last one I posted I was CHASTIZED for saying it was a George Nakashima style piece because of the steel legs, the finish and the right angles. Well, on this one I used what the tree and man provided me. When this piece was first harvested...

    I designed and created the TIE Fighter Box for a Star Wars themed art Exhibit that happened in May. For those that don't know May is Star Wars month (especially May 4th…May the 4th be with you). I turned the main body out of hard maple. I first turned a rough cylinder and added all my layout...
