  1. Blood Orange

    With all the false starts on this pen, I should call it Blood (Sweat and Tears) Orange! I should also be proud of myself for managing to complete, what started out as a simple Osage Orange pen, that on more than one occasion should have ended up in the burn pile, not once, but three times. I...
  2. Conductor's Podium #5

    A recent commission to create a new conductor's podium for a local school came into my email box this Spring. The school colors are red and yellow, so we came up with the color scheme using bloodwood and yellow heart. The legs also have a touch of purple heart to transition between the other...
  3. Toy Bi-Plane

    This plane was a Christmas gift for my niece a couple of years ago. It is made of bloodwood and maple. I don't remember the type of wood I used for the pilot. It looks like it might be teak. The wingspan is about 10 inches.
  4. Candy-Nut Dish

    I started out intending to produce another checkerboard candy dish, but could not get 12 segments out of the remaining Myrtle-Redwood combination that I had on hand. So I filled in with three segments of Satinwood and hope someone will like it at the craft show. The base is Monterillo and the...
  5. Getting Ready for my Winter Show

    So i was accepted into my first craft show (first time applying, it was a juried show and i got in). So my plan is to make around 100 intarsia ornaments for this show… Not to mention a couple of kaleidoscopes, a few cutting boards, 8 photo frames, some wine stoppers, and a few bandsaw boxes...
  6. Box I tried out...

    This is my first attempt at a box like this. It's also my first time using exotic wood like this. The main box is brazilian cedar with maple feet and zebrawood corners. The tray is bloodwood and maple, and the lid is maple with a zebrawood knob. I started with very little pieces of each...
  7. Another Bandsaw Bowl

    This bowl is made of mostly small leftover pieces from other bowls. They are fun to make and seem to be very popular considering the number of views. This one contains Bloodwood, Maple, Cherry, Sapele, African Mahogony and Monterillo. It's about 9" in diameter and stands 2.5" high.
  8. Walnut Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box I made for my daughter as a graduation gift. The wood is walnut and bloodwood. It measures 14 inches wide, 9 inches deep and 6 inches tall. I found the project in the October 2005 (issue 165) of Wood Magazine. The finish is several coats of lacquer.
  9. Geek Paraphernalia

    Some more Christmas gifts that have already been given, so I can now post. Some of you may be able to tell what these are from the title and the 2nd picture. For those of you that are not sure.. they are dice rolling trays for Dungeons & Dragons. I play with a small group of friends that have...
  10. Candle Box

    I made this box for Marilyn from a plan and modified it to fit candles instead of a bottle of wine. The ends and top are Lacewood and the sides are Curly Maple. The handle is Bloodwood and is set into American Sycamore. The pins are Brass. The finish is multiple coats of Deft lacquer.
  11. Worm Wood or Wood Worm?

    My neighbor had a piece of wood laying out back of thier house that was full of holes. They asked me if I new what had caused the holes, and when I told them it was probably "wood worms" they looked at me like I was sucking to many fumes from my stain/poly. I then explained to them about wood...
  12. 'Dunes'

    The concept of this design was to mimic blowing, shifting sand, wanting to convey a sense of movement. The shaping is intentionally softened, gently rolling one ridge into the next valley, and so on, for a natural feel. I am very pleased with the effect. Thanks for looking and for any votes that...
  13. "My Tell-Tale Heart"

    "My Tell-Tale Heart" box series was designed and created to celebrate my younger brother's wedding. Right from the start I knew I wanted to make them a special box. They got married on Halloween which was a big influence on the design. Taken from one the most famous pieces of gothic...
  14. First Bandsaw Bowl

    After seeing the beautiful Bandsaw bowls by Ronald Fontenot Jr. I made a first attempt at using the technique myself. I still have a long way to go but I was happy with the first effort and will certainly make more bowls using the bandsaw technique. I made use of some spare strips of various...
  15. Tounge Drum, Mitered Corners w/Keys

    The Italian Olivewood is extremely fragile to work with mitered corners. All I know is, I got lucky I did not break off an edge or corner. The tongues are made from Bloodwood. Both really look rich after finished with walnut oil. You can search YouTube for a good tutorial on building this...
  16. Lighted engineering sign

    I made this sign for a friend of mine out of pine, oak, poplar, and bloodwood. I burned the inside of the letters with a blowtorch and then coated them with epoxy. I finished the whole thing with shellac. The lighting is a recessed led strip. Here is a video of the build.
  17. Maple Burl Business Card Holder & Clock

    I had a big block of Maple that had a wonderful burl on the outside of the trunk. It had all this gnarly, pointy wood on the outside. I wanted to get into the burl to see the wonders I knew were there so I cut a curl off the outside of itl. WOW! I was thrilled at what I found, burl wood that...
  18. Couple of cutting boards

    Just finished up a couple of cutting boards. these two sold within hours of me putting them out. Maybe I should charge more for them the next time. The cross board is made from maple and blood-wood, the wave board is black walnut and maple.
  19. Picture Frame

    This is a frame I designed and built with Jatoba, Wenge and Bloodwood. The corners feature mortise and tenon joinery and bloodwood accents. Getting the splines around the corner edges to line up just right took a bit of doing. The picture with the frame around it is for display purpose only. It...
  20. A different cigar

    Tried a couple of different things here. I made a new sled with a steep angle: 70 degrees and tried it out on a Cigar kit. The rings being much longer, I decided to try my hand at a closed-end pen. Hence this Cigar:
