  1. Balance of Life

    This another sculpture I did while at the University of Montevallo. Each plate represents different things in our lives that we try to balance the reason there are so many broken ones is because we always try to take on to much, and don't pay attention to what we already have on our plate...
  2. Smaller replica of a Carlos Mata bronze bull

    I carved this bull as a present for my wife (she's a Taurus). We saw the original in an art show in Miami - second photo - and loved it. Mine is about 18" tall. It's carved from a single piece of walnut, with only the horns being glued on (yes, the tail is part of the original piece, not...
  3. Walnut and Bronze Clock

    8 years ago this past week I managed to convince my beautiful wife to marry me. We find it fun to follow the traditional anniversary gift ideas by year and this year was the "Bronze" anniversary (along with pottery, but I thought bronze would be a little more interesting!). This clock was what...

  5. The Christmas Pen

    This is a pen that made from polyester casting resin last year for a gift to a friend. It has red dye mixed in the resin along with some micropearl. The white that you see are actually pieces of maple that are impregnated in the resin. I have a series of videos on youtube about making this pen...

  6. Shopmade Router Plane

    Last February I purchased a pair of rough bronze router plane castings on eBay for $15. This has been a work in progress ever since. This is how it started out.. I made a larger base for the main body out of rosewood and the knobs were turned out of more rosewood on my drill press. I used...
  7. Gnarly Live Oak Platter and Bowl

    I don't post many of the bowls and things I turn but this piece of live oak had such an interesting grain that I could not resist. It came from a piece of crotch that had a really gnarly, twisted grain and some bark inclusions that left voids that I filled with a brass (platter) and bronze...
  8. Grinders

  9. Mission Style Chair

    This was my first mission style piece of furniture I've built. The rays in the oak didn't pop as I would have liked, but overall, I was pleased with my first chair and learned a lot when I built the tables later. I cut the foam myself and had my mother (yes, my mother) sew the fabric. I thought...
  10. Bar/Hutch

    When we moved out to our home farm and remodeled the old farm house we were really happy with the results, but the one thing we missed from our old house was the bar and bar frig in the living room. Even with our open floor plan there just wasn't enough room for a traditional bar. So, we...

    This jewelry box is a commission for a friend's wife for Christmas. Cherry sides with Figured Maple raised panel top. The inlay on the front consists of bronze and Bubinga with a maple strip between. Black velvet lining with custom made ring slots. The beading on the bottom was hand carved...
  12. Bronze patina finish similar to David Mark's technique used on DIY

    Quick overview of the process Start with stoneware tile, but it could be any material … wood, plaster, metal, interior or exterior … Alternating coats of copper and liquid bronze solution. Before last coat is dry, brush or spray, liberal amounts of verde acid patina. I wear rubber gloves and...
  13. Arts & Crafts style lamp holder

    I finally got around making a lamp post (holder, bracket, whatever it's called) for my bronze lantern. It was always meant to be outside, so I used the redwood scraps from our deck construction, made a quick Sketchup drawing and went away… This project had a lot of design choices while building...
  14. The Clearing s/n 64 reframed

    A customer bought one of my pieces and later saw one of my auctions with a qtr white sawn oak frame. He requested a reframe. Finally figured out his budget and agreed to make him a 100 dollar frame. Figured I could make 4 identical frames and still make out ok when I sell the remaining three...
  15. Redwood Driveway Gate

    Not a great picture, but this is a driveway gate, pedestrian gate, and garbage can enclosure. The frame is 2×2 powder coated steel, the wood is a mix of old growth redwood from the Russian River area (main gate) and new stuff from Friedmans (after I decided to expand the scope of the project)...

  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Does anyone here know of a good place on the internet to purchase hardware for small boxes? I am so tired of shiny polished brass. What I want is to find a site that sells matching hinges and catches in materials like bronze, copper, finished in black, pretty much anything other than shiny...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    It finally arrived…a new LN bronze smoother. Boy is it great when scrap metal prices are so high right now to turn in and get some woodworking candy. I opened the box and behold! This doesn't look right! DISCLAIMER: Lets keep the LN vs LV vs Stanley etc…to a minimum. Yes I called the...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have a project where the customer is requesting a removable bronze inlay that hides the table seam or removable bronze butterfly's that are spaced down the seam. It's a large table top that will need to be taken apart if needed. I have done inlays and butterfly's a plenty but never with...
