  1. Ice Cream Scoop with Celtic Knot inlay, knurled and burned

    My first prototypes of this project went to relatives for Christmas gifts. I hadn't used the lathe in 15 or 20 years and started with some avocado "firewood".

    Started a project with no real intent, plan, dimensions; just happened across a 38"x36"x2" slab of old growth Japanese Cedar that a local sawyer had sitting around for 65 years! He was cleaning shop and let it go for $20! In true Japanese fashion, both faces were completely straight grain and...
  6. A few clocks

    Here's a small archive of a few clocks I've made in the past couple of years. The first is from a piece of wood I found from a scrap pile at a woodsmith store. I loved the bark on the side, and used a small piece of cherry for the face. My wife talked me into embedded some beads for the face...

  10. Ice Storm Birch Wood Pen

    I collected some fallen branches from a birch tree this winter. I turned one into some pen blanks, and you see the results above. I also burned in a few lines to give the light coloured wood some more character. This particular piece has some bark inclusions in it, which also added some...

    Hello , this is another commisioned piece made from Maple and Black Walnut . It is 16"wide x 20" long plus the handle adds about 5" to it and it is 9/16" thick . I reduced the thickness from 3/4" due to the weight factor for the elderly couple that ordered it from me. They love it and commented...

    Cut from a tree at work. Used a microwave transformer to burn a fractal pattern above the crack in the middle, and then filled both with turquoise. I wanted it to look like a tree coming out of the ground. Finished with Sam Maloof oil/poly. First time doing any fractal burns or inlay work so...

  19. Wood & Lumber
    Is there any danger in burning PTW considering the wood is rotted? In other words, does the toxicity dissipate over time?
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a shopfox benchtop mortiser that ALWAYS burns the stock I am trying to mortise. I tried readjusting the chisels, I tried going at incredibly slow feed rates, and there is always a lot of smoke coming form the stock and a lot of burning. I thought maybe it was the chisel part of the bit...
