  1. Projects Hand carved horse plaque

    I recently carved this horse head on a horse shoe as a gift to celebrate a big birthday. I had always wanted to try to carve one of these and just loved the finished item, I really wish I could have kept it. It's carved from 2 bits of pine that I had to glue together to get the size I wanted...
  2. Mahogany Carved Twin Bed

    Ladies and gentlemen, This project was born somewhere at the local IKEA. I realized there that I wanted a simple and practical bed with the feel of beautiful real wood, chopped, carved, and finished myself. Here it is: Honduras mahogany - I didn't want to spend time working on a cheap...
  3. Carved Walking Stick

    I sat on the porch carving this little guy, and I was really pleased with the way it turned out. It took a long while to carve the wrapping design. The whole thing was carved with a bucknife.
  4. Carved bowl

    The decoration on this spalted sycamore bowl is a hand carved and burned knot. This project was full of firsts: first carving of this sort, first time working with spalted wood, first time working with anything this big and unbalanced on my lathe, first time turning green wood, first time drying...
  5. a Layout Square With Maple and Walnut

    The layout square is the predecessor tot he carpenter's square as we know it today and this simple design goes back pre-history. They are found in every culture and time. almost all built the same way just different decorations and sizes to match the culture and use. we decided to make this out...
  6. 'Dunes'

    The concept of this design was to mimic blowing, shifting sand, wanting to convey a sense of movement. The shaping is intentionally softened, gently rolling one ridge into the next valley, and so on, for a natural feel. I am very pleased with the effect. Thanks for looking and for any votes that...
  7. Carved Table

    This table top was carved by my lady. She drew the design and did all the carving. I only made the support structure for it. She wanted a shelf incorporated into it, so that's what she got. Assembly is glue and dowel with no screws, nails, or brads. My personal preference is glue joints - it's...

  10. Sculpted Watch & Valet Box - Take Some Risks

    So make a box, make a really really good box. Use the best woods you can find, exotic woods, expensive woods. It will take every scrap of the boards you bought to make the box. No mistakes. If you screw up a cut you will not be able to find another board that will match and you can not sell...

    This box is Old Growth California Redwood with Bocte hinges, Maple splines and Walnut bottom. The dished Fleur di Leis was carved on my CarveWright machine. 3 coats of Wipe on Poly. I still have to trim the brass pins on the hinges.

  13. Fish carvings

    Here are two fish carvings which my husband carved and painted as gifts a few years ago. The largemouth bass is carved from bass and mounted on a piece of rustic oak (along with a tiny bass which he also carved and painted). The pumpkinseed is carved from bass also, but mounted in front of a...
  14. Ebb Tide

    Another box with subtle shaping trying to convey a sense of calm. I love how the surf shapes the sand at the edge of the beach and was hoping to express that in the top. I gently shaped the body to invite touching but not distract from the top. Details: The body is wenge and the top is Oregon...
  15. "Sahara" a sculpted cocobolo box

    This box has the wildest shaping so far, blending the top with the sides and each side with the next. At least to some degree, yet still trying to maintain a free form feel. A set design laid out in exact increments would still be difficult, but easier. My goal was to shape the top into a...
  16. Backpacker's Banjo (or Panjo)

    Well, I'd been wantin' a banjo that was light enough and sturdy enough to take on backpacking trips for a while now, and when I came across this bright red, teflon-coated thin steel pan in a thrift store, the solution came to me! It is pretty simple. the neck is from some scrap oak, and the...
  17. Carved Antler Cane

    The handle is carved from a white tailed deer antler tine, and then stained with coffee. The handle is held in place by a dowel drilled in from the front , this dowel also holds the front walnut cap in place. The maple wedge forces the top of the walnut cane shaft to fit tightly in the hole thru...

  19. Clean or Dirty? Dishwasher Sign-Hand Carved

    Here is a project that I made for our new washing machine. I took a piece of quarter inch yellowheart and made transferred a clean/dirty design onto it. Then I carved out the letters and used a shallow gouge to chamfer the edge a little. The letters were fairly small, so I used a toothpick to...
