  1. A Few More Wine Balancers

    These are a few more of the projects completed when my son was out for a visit. He had several requests for wine balancers and these are some of the patterns requested. These are fun and a great way to use up scrap.
  2. Display Cabinet |Federal Style

    This is a display cabinet that was built for a customer that was in need for a lot of China display space. It is 109" tall. They really like the style of Duncan Phyfe with a Federal style top. By working with the customer this is what we came up with Features: Mahogany wood Full extension...
  3. Sympathy Bowl

    This is a bowl for a dear friend after a loss. It is turned out of Russian Olive burl. Even with sharp tools this was a very difficult bowl to turn, and the inside is more shallow than I would like. Finished with Danish Oil and buffed to shine. Bowl is about 8×8".
  4. Maple Burl Bowl

    I turned this little bowl about a week ago. I brought it up from the shop and my daughter says, "It's nice. Is that going to be it's final shape?" She's learning from her mother. So I rechuck it and come up with this. It's maple burl, finished with Watco Danish Oil and buffed with tripoli...

    One of my larger bowls to date, and definitely one of the prettiest woods I've worked. 12" wide by 4.5" deep. Finished with Mahoney's Walnut Oil and beeswax, as are most of my projects.
  8. Redwood burl

    Just finished a coffee tabletop for a client. This burl was from a very old redwood tree that was dropped on the clients property. It's been in a woodshed for 30 years, until I was asked to refinish it. So, after hours of enjoying the Handplane workout routine and more hours of sanding by hand...
  9. Shillelagh Walking stick

    This is a Shillelagh style walking stick I made for my friend who happens to be the local barber in the neighborhood I grew up in. He is in his 80's and still is out cutting fire wood on his property a few days a week. Over the years we have become good friends and when I started getting back...
  10. My best pen kit to date

    this is the nicest pen kit I've turned so far. I have to say, I was a bit nervous going in, as I've been saving this burl for a special occasion and didn't want to screw it up. i am happy with the results, it turned out pretty good. I didn't turn tis for anyone specific, more as a fun little...
  11. Carpathian Elm Burl Veneer Mirror

    We needed a mirror over the sofa when we decorated our family room. My wife's theme was metal and wood. The wood part fell to me. We agreed on a design that was published in Woodsmith magazine. I have never really done a veneer project before so the challenge was exciting. The frame is poplar...

  13. Baby Cradle / Glider Walnut

    The project that I've most recently completed is a Baby Cradle / Glider. The cradle uses a glider function instead of a swinging function. This was selected because if was felt that it could be more soothing to the baby or in this case babies. (Twins) It was felt that a cradle has a life span of...
  14. Display Stand

    I wanted to build a stand to display a vase that my wife and I purchased from our favorite glass blower, Peter Muller (http://www.afternoonglass.com/). I picked up this nice Maple burl cap on ebay and used it along with Bubinga to build the stand. Love working with Bubinga, smells like cigars...
  15. My First Pens

    I made all of these pens in my shop class, and all of them except for the zebrawood one (which I made for my mom for mother's day) are for my sister. In the first picture, from right to left, the woods are zebrawood, maple, lacewood with a mysterious brown burl on top, and purpleheart. I decided...
  16. Sewing Tool Box and Pin Cushion

    This box was a commissioned piece for a friend at work who needed something to put her sewing cutters and scissors in. I surprised her with the pin cushion which I made from a scrap. It is made with Lacewood and Purple heart splines to reinforce the joints.
  17. Last minute Christmas order

    It has been a while since I last posted a project and decided that I needed to start posting more of my projects. This project was for some Christmas gifts for one of my clients that has purchased a few pens in the past. This time it was a request for 3 pen sets (pen, letter opener, and a...
  18. Soft and Hard woods Unite!

    I've been what I would call "dinkin" around in the shop. Basically, building things in order to realize the errors in my layout. You know, tweaking the efficiency of the shop. So nothing big here, finally got to use my incra jig, so I made this pine box out of some scrap I had, than as usual the...
  19. An oaken chest

    I'm sure the word 'oak' would suffice, but I like the word 'oaken' even if it is archaic. Anyway, this is another piece made from the old school laboratory benches; the framework that is, not the panels. They're bookmatched burr / burl oak that tested my bandsaw to the limit but I felt the...
  20. Burl Top Box

    The top is Pecan burl given to me by a local sawer. The burl soaks up oil and varnish like a sponge. I had to keep drenching it until it built up a gloss. The sides are madrone from my property. The madrone is wonderfully iridescent, although hard to tell in the pictures. It is lined with purple...
