  1. Hand Forged Gouges (Surprise Swap)

    For the 2017 "Shop Made SURPRISE Tool Swap" I forged this set of three incanal wood carving gouges from 1080 steel. I forged the tangs then hammered the curvature with my swage block. I heat treated them in the forge, quenching in oil and tempering at 400 deg F, followed by softening the...
  2. Twin Dragonscale Drawknives

    After seeing the beautiful hand saws Brian of BearKat Wood creates, I offered him a trade for some forging. He took me up on the offer and I set out to make him a fancy drawknife. I initially forged a tiny one just to learn the process, then moved on to making these two. I sent the larger one...
  3. Shed Doors (Barn Style)

    I have been posting (albeit intermittently), about the re-construction of a 12×20 shed in my backyard here in Columbia, SC. I shopped around for barn door hardware but could not locate any that I liked, or that seemed robust enough for these heavy doors, for under $250-$300. I made a temporary...
  4. damascus spatula

    I forged this pattern-welded damascus spatula for my Mom's birthday gift. I offered her a knife or any other thing I could forge, and this is what she chose. Never made one before, it was lots of flattening work with a cross pein hammer and a ton of grinding. 1080 and 15n20 steel, hardened...
  5. another fancy chef knife

    Again, not a ton of wood in this project but I wanted to show it to my wood friends here. I recently finished this pattern-welded integral bolster chef knife. I started with 8 layers of 1080 and 15n20 steel, forge welded them together, twisted the whole mess as much as I could, then forged to...
  6. Mesquite Buckets

    I've been making buckets for about 30 years. I make other things too, but coopering is my favorite craft; blacksmithing is a close second. I started making mesquite buckets about 20 years ago, and haven't been able to stop. They're much harder to make than a pine bucket but the result is...
  7. Distressed Knotty Alder Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a door we constructed/installed for a customer that wanted a very specific look. They showed us a picture from a hardware manufacturer's website and wanted to make a very similar door. The door is made of new, kiln dried knotty alder and is a total thickness of 1.75″. There is a mixture...

  9. Son's Serving Tray with Iron Handles

    My son, 11 yr old, wanted to make something for his teacher this year as a way to say thank you for being a good teacher. He wanted to incorporate both wood, and some smithed iron. He's taken an interest in hand forged iron after a school trip to St. Augustine FL where he saw a blacksmithing...

  11. Mesquite Stools

    I just finished these a couple of days ago. Can you see the spider on the larger stool? Christmas will be here soon enough, and these are a lot easier to make than buckets! This is the first time I've used Permalac. It's a great finish, and is supposed to hold up in the sun-we'll see.

  13. Mesquite Coffee Table

    This table is handcrafted from a large slab of old mesquite; it is 48" long by 25" wide and 18" high. The legs are hand forged from truck axels. The piece is finished with marine varnish to protect it in the sun. It is intended for a patio but could also be used for an indoor display. Mesquite...
  14. Floral Swirl Round Box

    This piece is made from reclaimed and scrap timber. For the carving I used Red Gum which was only a trial as I was unsure how it would go. As you can see I persevered but I don't think I will use it again. Very hard and difficult to carve. But it served a purpose. The lid and base are floating...

And as I hope many of you know there is nothing better than Japanese woodworking tools. They are the absolute best in performance and beauty and...
