  1. Whitetail Antler Cartridge

    These are the chrome cartridge kits from woodturningz.com with whitetail antler. The one on the right was drilled off-center so I could get a bit of the spongy center of the horn (filled with medium CA and antler dust) to show. My Father-in-law is a bug deer hunter, and one of these is for him...
  2. A quick turned wooden bullet

    Just got a new drill chuck for my lathe to make bottle stoppers and thought I would start out with something simple. This is a 20MM casing with a turned piece of maple for the bullet. I tried to fancy up a bit with a small turks head knot. Again nothing special but thought I would share…..
  3. Clear Epoxy - Used Shell, Dovetailed Box

    I recently got married, this is a box that I made as a gift for my best man. After it was complete I filled it with some ammo. I saw some other projects on here that encased items in clear epoxy resin, there was a table with beer caps that impressed me in particular...
  4. Groomsmen gifts

    My niece got married in November. She and her fiancé asked me to make them some pens for the groomsmen gifts. Now here is a gift I would want! 24k bolt action with amboyna burl. The pens were a big hit. I also saved an extra blank and made her husband one for Christmas.
  5. Southwestern Bench

    I designed this Southwestern style bench from some Aspen pallets we received just before Christmas this year. These pallets seemed too good to just cut up and burn. I needed a white elephant gift this year, so I saved the pallets and made a rustic bench out of them. However once my wife saw the...
  6. Box elder Burl...I like it!...and others.....

    This piece of stabilized box elder burl came with one of the starter pen kits I purchased from PSI. Put it with a Rhodium Big Ben Cigar kit. The next one is ambrosia maple with another cigar kit Then a Compson with heartwood ambrosia. Finally a 30cal bullet kit with zebrawood. I have more but...
  7. Bullet Pens

    I made several bullet pens over the past week for a friend. These were all basically sold as they were made or before they were made. These are all once fired shell casings with acrylic ends. The grids in the photo are 1/2" Brass/Bullet Sizes 50 caliber - 1 (the big one) .223 - 2 (smaller pens...
  8. 50-Cal Pen

    This is a new pen kit from PSI and it uses a real once-fired 50-cal cartridge casing. The 2nd picture shows its size in comparison with a pen I make with a .30-06 casing and deer antler and a Sierra click pen. The casing was sanded up to 2000 grit then coated with Turners Polish. The woods used...
  9. Wrench plaque

    Wrench plaque I made for a buddie who was getting out. He was a MALS guy in the Marine Corps, so he used a wrench everyday. Thought it would be fitting. We're also ordnance Marines so I had to throw some rounds on there as well.
  10. Bullet hammer (20mm) Madsen's peace hammer

    Bullet hammer 20mm Madsen War is not the answer… Another one of my strange ideas! One day some years ago I visit the local scrap yard, and in the brass container it looked like a war had been going on in Copenhagen, there were full of bullets… So I picked up a 20 mm big bastard, and read one...
  11. Turned pens...sorta...

    Well not really much turning involved… lets call these fabricated pens… I've wanted to make some Bullet Pens for a while as I knew these would be a hit for Christmas gifts to my hunter and law enforcement friends. An article came out in last month's Woodturning Design which laid out the basics...
  12. My First Bolt Action Bullet Pen

    I've never been much into bullet pens… not that I'm against guns because I'm not, but I just don't see the correlation between guns and pens. They are two very different things. But anyway, I made this one as a Memorial Day gift to a Vietnam veteran friend of mine, who I think will like it and...
  13. CARTRIDGE BOX

    This is a custom cartridge box made for an old friend. It fits .22 Hornet cartridges. It is made from sapele and cocobolo. The lid is held on with rare earth magnets and index pins made from finish nails. The handle is a cut down .22 Hornet case. The finish is many coats of gloss spray lacquer...
  14. Taught my brother how to make pens... I created a monster

    my brother bought a house and wanted a hobby, so i taught him to make pens
  15. 12' Mini Ski Boat: Glen-L Bullet (Video)

    My youngest son and I built this boat in the spring of 2008 following a Glen-L Boats plan. My late wife was dying of cancer at the time and this was a good project for my son and I to work on together. The plywood frame pieces are 3/4" marine Douglas fir plywood. The solid wood frame pieces...
  16. Arts and Crafts Library Desk - AKA the Bullet Desk

    This is a QSWO library desk I built for my son's room. It is inspired by a Stickley library table, which I scaled down as a small desk. Most of the period A&C desks have a large lower shelf, however I modified the design for more leg room. We found a board with a bullet lodged in it, and...
  17. Bullet in the barn

    Found this in some barn wood I was recycling. These boards were part of a loft floor from an old barn that was built prior to the 1940's. Interesting mix of oak, walnut, sycamore and poplar. This was a flooring board, so I'm guessing that the bullet was in the tree before it was harvested...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've got an app on my phone for craigslist listings. I have a filter on woodworking tools. Well today it paid off. Just got: Ridgid 6" planer JP 06101- Set up but never used! Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle Sander - New in the box Ryobi WDP 1850 Woodworkers Drill Press with...

    Spraying Metal Question A few months back a customer had this cartridge laying out in her back yard and saw me admiring it and told me to take it. I had no idea what i'd do with it but i knew it was too unusual to pass up. So i made me a shell for it out of a chunk of mahogany the other day...
