    Hello all, it's been awhile since I posted a project because of my broken hand and then playing catch up to get some projects done.

  6. Butternut slab with epoxy dye

    Here's another butternut slab bench I worked on. Originally I had put keys in it because of a couple cracks, then I was going to just fill a center "stream" with dyed epoxy. The more I tried to do, the more rot I found and then had to expand the pour and more. I poured way more epoxy (west...

    After having the 8/4 butternut in my stock for several years, I finally working up the courage to try my first attempt at carving. The result is "Chinook," a traditional English Rocking Horse on a swing stand made of ash. I used the bandsaw, mallet and chisels, drawknife, microplanes and lots of...
  8. Two scrap butternut boxes

    The first two images are of a box approximately 13 x 5 1/4 x 4. The smaller box is about 10 x 6 x 2 3/4 - all in inches. The top handles are walnut. Good exercise for getting back into woodworking and using up scrap.
  9. First Bowls

    Bowls are purple heart, butternut, burl maple (with some really light spalting on the oppostie side but only showed the burl in the pics since I like it more), Box elder, and maple, from left to right. They are the first bowls I've ever produced. Though now that I think about it there not in...

  14. Carving Spoon

    I'm fairly new to carving spoons, just started a couple of years ago. This is my first spoon that I carved out of butternut. At the time the only power tool I owned was a scroll saw which I used to rough out the blank, all the rest of the work was done by hand. Since then I've found that the...
  15. Fly tying cabinet with storage and folding work surface

    Since I was a child I have been tying flies for fishing and storage of all those materials was an issue. I came up with this design to contain the various feathers, yarns, hooks, and tools used in the process, and to provide a handy work surface to attach the vise to. The idea in the design was...
  16. Cubbyholes for antique desk

    Hi everyone, I am pretty new to LJs-this is the first project I put up. My mother-in-law (saintly woman, seriously) asked me to build a desktop cubbyhole cabinet to match an antique desk she uses. It is in butternut, with straightgrain pine drawers. It has six thicknesses in it-1/4 drawer...

  18. Butternut practice box that didn't come out too bad

    This is your standard mitered box with a rabbeted bottom and the lid cut off after assembly. The splines are walnut and there is a walnut stripe on the top. I finished with danish oil, but it left the butternut really flat. After it dried I wiped on 2 coats of Arm-R-Seal. It was buffed with...
  19. Child's Hand Holding Butterfly Carving

    Hand Carved Child's Hand Holding a Butterfly. I carved this out of butternut (hand) and curly maple (butterfly) with hand gouges. It was challenging, but fun and I think I can get the next butterfly even thinner. Both are sealed in a beeswax finish. The hand measures about 5 inches by a...
  20. Banana Hangers

    This was one of those spur of the moment ideas. I was at my sister's house installing her vanity when I saw an ugly plastic white banana hanger in her beautiful hand made wooden kitchen. I decided she needed a better looking banana hanger. I actually found a project here and modified the...
