  1. The Christmas Pen

    This is a pen that made from polyester casting resin last year for a gift to a friend. It has red dye mixed in the resin along with some micropearl. The white that you see are actually pieces of maple that are impregnated in the resin. I have a series of videos on youtube about making this pen...

  2. Beer Swap 2018

    Well now that I'm back from Ireland and everyone;s revealed, here's what I sent to Hokieken for the swap. It all started off with a Pecan tree that someone cut down in February of last year. This wood was and still is somewhat wet, so there was some drying done while it was being turned. This...
  3. Wenge / Resin Wood Necklace Pendants

    A set of wenge and resin necklaces for my wife's boutique clothing store. Cast as a single block and this time using a pressure pot to make the casting as clear as possible to really show off the wenge colors. I split the block with bandsaw and sliced them into individual sizes. Then I used a...

  5. Cholla Cactus Bangles -Blushing Pink and Pixy Purple

    Just made these two beauties over the last few days. They're both Cholla Cast with Allumilite colored Epoxy over Stainless Steel cores. They're a little more delicate than others I've made but the end result is worth it. The Blushing Pink (1st 3 pics) is a size 8. The Pixy Purple (last 3...
  6. More bottle stoppers

    As I posted a couple weeks back, the wife wants to sell stuff online… So I made a bunch of wood bottle stoppers one afternoon…. Anything that will get me shop time without her nagging me to do other stuff…. Well for the Beer Swap I decided to try casting and stabilizing. Because of that, I...
  7. Beer Swap 2019

    So as I sat there drinking my Red Breast trying to figure out what the hell to make for the swap this year… I looked up and saw the hops wall art I received in last years swap from Tom Regnier. It then dawned on my that I should figure out how to cast hops for a bottle opener handle. I had...

  10. Wood / Resin necklaces

    Some necklaces I made for my wife's boutique clothing store using some leftover exotic wood, alumilite resin and metallic mica powder. Casted as a single large block then cut into each individual piece. So far they have been popular with the Packers fans!
  11. Quilt Hanger

    My wife has a quilt her grandmother made circa 1930. She wanted a way to display it rather than keep it packed away. When we saw the design in the Dec.1997 edition of Wood Magazine, she asked if I would build one. Frankly, I had just started doing better quality woodworking and had never...
  12. USMC Pen and Display

    I caste this blank from alumiltie. I needed something to display it with so came up with this little flag display. Seems to work… I caste custom blanks if anyone is interested.
  13. Experimental hinged swimbait

    I've made a lure that is a segmented bait with hinges. Thing is it has two hinges but four pivot points. (you'll see in the video). The motion is almost fluid like. It's a rough build. In fact I wasn't even going to paint it, just make it to see if it worked. I decided to finish it up anyway...
  14. Local woodturning club ornament swap

    So one of the local clubs does an ornament swap at the Christmas party. For me, I didn't want to do the typical tree hanger…so I went with a snow globe. If you hit the light just right, you'll see glitter in it that makes it looks like it is snowing. It's maple burl painted with a white mica...

  16. Keel UnderWater

    This commissioned desk is made from Balayong and Ipil. The pebbles are all hand made from different species of local woods and cast in resin. The bread board ends are from Ipil and hold the top together so that there is no stress on the resin. I was inspired by the Winged Keel of the yacht...
  17. Purpleheart and Alumilite Bowl

    Here is a Purpleheart and Alumilite bowl I cast and then turned. This was some very hard Purpleheart wood, even harder than usual. The turning wasn't easy because the Alumilite wanted to chip out. Let me know what you think. I also have videos in my Youtube channel of the casting and of the...
  18. Growth Goblet

    I found a small dead sapling (unknown wood) about 1 inch in diameter that had this strange growth directly in the middle of its trunk that bulged out to about 3 inch diameter for about a foot and a half before shrinking back to 1 inch. Naturally I cut it down to turn on the lathe, and boy am I...
  19. Maple Burl Shot Glass

    I found a few trees in my woods that had what I believe is black knot disease, and were dropping these burls on the ground. I gathered a few up to turn on the lathe. The first one I tried broke apart so I decided I needed to cast them in some sort of resin. I picked up this Easy Cast and it...
  20. Hybrid Marking Knife

    I've been working toward this project for a long time gathering materials, making a vacuum chamber and pressure pot. The entire process to create hybrid blanks is pretty interesting so if you want to know more, check out my new video and article on making a hybrid marking knife...
