  1. Sgian Dubh Presentation Box #2

    This is a commissioned piece I've been working on. It is a sgian dubh presentation box for a woman in Scotland to give to her fiance on their wedding day. It is a traditional Scottish wedding, with kilts and the like, so inside will be a custom sgian dubh made just for him (but not by me; by...
  2. Bog oak cufflinks

    An idea I toyed with for a while before I actually got around to doing it. Once I got around to it, the whole project, from beginning to end, took me less time than I actually spent thinking about it. The wood is bog oak, the bezel cup is sterling silver, and the cuff link finding is a shiny...
  3. Bog Oak Pen

    When I was making my sgian dubh presentation box for my best man, I wanted to use bog oak in it. The bog oak I bought from the U.K. came with a few larger pieces, so I thought I'd try my hand at pen turning. I'm not terribly comfortable using the lathe yet, so I still have a lot of cleaning up...
  4. The Ripper

    Bog oak D2 steel ( 7mm ) 62 HRC natural oil finish 415g, L: 285mm (11.2'') I think it's great device to cutting skin and flesh … Sharp like hell :D
  5. Sgian Dubh Presentation Box

    Dana and I had an Irish/Scottish themed wedding, complete with a piper playing at the ceremony and an Irish band playing at the reception. Probably more importantly, however, my best man and I both wore kilts - he was in his family's tartan, Montgomery, and I was in Dana's family's tartan...
  6. Ancient Submerged Sycamore Bog Log Slab Cut on Home built Monster bandsaw log mill table top sized

    I'm Back with More Log Milling Photos….. Since my last entry about the home built Log Mill, we've (I should say my project buddy) made some important improvements to the machine. We (he….you get the point) fixed the fuel and oil tank leaks (twice), added motorized moving blade guides on both...

    Okay. Fess up. Who's got a Mahogany Zero Clearance Insert on their band saw??? Ante up?? I'm in. "Yankees never throw anything away…." :-) Those with a truly keen eye will notice the tiny blood stain, just to the left of the blade. This is how I'm signing my work … for now ;-)

    My First Commissioned Piece Well, it isn't really my first commissioned piece, but it is the first one commissioned by a complete stranger. I seem to have an unending list of people I know who want me to make them something or another… When I made a presentation box for my best man's sgian...

    My first Bog Oak Found what looks like a Oak on construction site, called the company and they were happy to get rid of it, lucky me :)
  10. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond...
  11. Finishing
    dyed a piece with a few coats of water based dye then sealed with shellac. I then applied a coat of GF high performance. After that had dried I took the dye filled sponge that I had kept in zip lock bag all night and wiped a very light glaze over the top as a toner. I never dipped it back in the...
