  1. Woodcarving
    Was given a piece of maple burl that had a lot of character in the wood. Very fragile and it was a challenge to carve the boot. Finished with several coats of shellac. Enjoy the project.
  2. Projects Burl Bottle Opener

    Niles Style Burl Handle Bottle Opener This is a Niles style bottle opener, made from stainless steel, paired with an unknown species of burl, finished with CA glue and Renaissance wax. A family friend gave me a branch with a bunch of small burls on it, which they found in the fire pit of a...
  3. Eucalyptus Burl Razors

    Knocked out a few eucalyptus burl Mach III razors this weekend. Plenty of mini-strokes along the way working with all of the voids and internal bark. Ended up turning down to near finished shapes and then filling all voids with 5 minute epoxy, then turning (light scraping with spindle gouge)...
  4. Jewelry Box

    I had a little walnut burl veneer left over from a vanity I had made my wife last summer. Thought I would cap it off with a matching jewelry box. The box and drawers are solid walnut and the drawers have the walnut burl fronts. Purple is her favorite color, so I lined the drawer bottoms with the...
  5. Such a Waste

    Rick was in the building mood this weekend and so I put my wish list in and we made a couple waste bins out of the pine boards we got a couple weeks ago. The bins are nothing fancy, just the way I like it, and will probably get all distorted because they are fresh boards, but that will just add...

    A pack of scruffy dogs wait for a raccoon to finish raiding a garbage can. Manzanita burl base, basswood and birch figures, glass and brass "lamp", madrone tree
  7. Honeybee, the Sapele Telecaster

    Guitar #5 - the SapeleTele I'm christening "Honeybee" for it's black and gold burl cap. This is my secohttp://lumberjocks.com/projects/new#nd semi-hollow electric and first body cut entirely on the CNC machine. The neck is hand-carved maple with a birdseye fretboard and features Abalone fret...
  8. A long trip

    This was a maple cookie, with a slice of burl, or in simpler terms, a stump cut. My wife and I were on a winter vacation, motoring up thru central Oregon, when I found a fellow selling these cookies. I thought I would take a chance and get one. I had picked up several very nice pieces of wood by...
  9. Entertainment built in

    My wife has decided she wants a built in cabinet for the Big screen and some shelves for the books. I intend to build three cabinet bases with the middle one standing proud a couple inches, then add bookcase shelves on the outer two and pedestal shelves in the middle for the DVD and VCR stuff...
  10. Curly Redwood table trio

    Love the curly Redwood! Created this coffee table from a slab of Redwood…has some great grain that I thought I would share. I had the slab shaped out when it sold and the client needed it at 11 feet rather than the 12+ that it was…the cut off end became matching end tables. Tons of turquoise...
  11. Natural Edge Maple Burl Bowl

    My first natural edge bowl. Definitely my best work so far! All questions and comments are welcome. Enjoy!
  12. Oak Burl

    This is an oak burl salvaged from my neighbor's yard just before the tree was cut down. Some parts of the burl were rather soft and "punky". At one point it flew apart with pieces in various places in the shop. I pieced it back together and managed to get something nice out of it. I finished it...
  13. Medium Boxes With Lift Lids

    Decided to build a couple of smaller boxes than I usually build. The darker box is smoked eucalyptus veneer with cedar lining on the inside, walnut trays and maple trim. The lighter box is also a veneer that I was unable to identify, also with cedar lining on the inside, walnut trays, african...
  14. Maple Burl Bandsaw box - first try WIP

    This is a maple burl bandsaw box i created last night. I like it a lot except for the seam at the bottom. apparently the box slipped when i was doing the glue-up and so it doesn't exactly align. My teacher says it might look a little off because the bandsaw blade was pretty wide and therefore...
  15. Urban logged burls

    Some recent burls I have picked up. If you have time to visit my website or read any of my posts you will know I do not "harvest" trees. I just work with people to put stuff headed for the landfill/ burnpile to good use. I got most of these burls from firewood cutters. There is some hard maple...
