  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. Projects Nightstands

    I had to build a pair of nightstands and if you are building one, well build five. I did have a use for another pair and had enough wood left for a fifth without a mate. They are made out of Sapele with dovetail drawers. The construction is standard mortise and tenon sides and back, though...
  3. Projects Wood Carving of a Squirrel

    In the fall is the perfect time to carve a hardworking squirrel. After about a week, I thought I would post a picture of my progress. At this point, you can see that I got the majority of the shape of the animal, and my decision to begin to show the hair. I want to get that detail before I...

  6. Stone Inlaid .22 Stock

    I share a shop with a gunsmith - so I guess it was only a matter of time before someone asked for stone inlay in a gun! This .22 came in only partly functional and with a stock that appeared to have been "modified" at some point by someone with more energy than skill. Since it was going to be a...
  7. Underwater World

    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.

  13. Unique Band Saw Box

    This is the first bandsaw box that I made completely of my own design (instead of Lois Ventura's).

  14. The coffee scoop experiment

    After seeing bearpie's beautiful scoops, I thought I would try my hand at it so…. This is my sad attempt at carving a coffee scoop. A friend had made some boat seats recently modeled after an old tractor seat, he told me he shaped them with an angle grinder. So i tried it. I have to say, it was...
  15. Thunder Cloud

    These carvings all came from the same black walnut round. Every time I sliced off a piece to shape the Indian a new shape emerged in the scrap. The pieces just formed themselves. I couldn't find the heart to throw them away. They kept staring at me and it was getting to my nerves. So I scratched...
