  1. Sculpted sea rays in Volga blue granite

    Okay, I know it's not wood, but those that know me, know I've posted my stone work before since I work in a lot of stone. The base is Golden Ambrosia granite, ( I think I remember the name right, there's so many kinds) I chose it because it looks so much like the ocean sand. I carved the edges...

  3. Marquetry hearts napkin holder

    I've been doing some small pieces to practice my marquetry. I needed a napkin holder for our dining room table because I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old at home. They are both exceedingly messy. I was originally going to make it slightly more blocky but thanks to my very talented father I...
  4. A Cutting Board That Isn't

    I had a bunch of scrap walnut strips that had been accumulating. In an attempt t clean up the shop, I made my first cutting board with them. I was going to router out the juice groove and make hand holds, but before I could get there it was confiscated as part of the table centerpiece. At...

  6. "bowl of walnuts", an art project

    Ever made something out of boredom? This is my take on a decorative center piece for the dining room table. After making dovetail keyed splines for a project a while ago, I had a bunch of these funny shaped cut offs. Since I subscribe to the "no such thing as scrap" mantra, I saved them with...

    Just finished up some Christmas presents in August. Get things done with the long vision is what woodworkers do. Hopefully this will reduce the stress a bit come December. From the plans in Wood Magazine Nov 2002 Issue 145. Nice Wood included the patterns for the reindeer and mountains...
  8. Wedding Centerpiece Boxes from fence pickets

    My daughter chose "Wood & Lace" as the theme for her wedding.

  10. Tea light candle holder centerpiece

    Here is our Thanksgiving centerpiece candle holder. I got the idea from Steve Ramsey over at woodworkingformeremortals and kept it pretty simple. I really like basic shapes and clean lines and this one has a kind of Japanese style to it. It's made from curly maple and bloodwood (Satine). I...

  12. Wine Stave Votive

    We lucked out on some beatiful oak wine barrel staves while out wine tasting a few months ago. Along comes the monster-in-law's birthday, and the next thing I know, I'm wrestling with a 2" forstner bit and keeping the darn thing level on my little drill press. A coat of Minwax Classic Oak oil...
  13. Lil Red Wagon

    Here are a few pictures of a recent project that I made. It is all made of poplar except the wheels and the rails on the top of the bed. The wheels are Brazilian cherry and the rails are oak.. I turned the wheels on the lathe. The wagon is approximately 18" long and 9" wide. It stands 8"...

    This was a very basic project that my wife asked me to make. She wanted a box to hold mason jars with candles to use as a centerpiece for the dining table I made last year. Redwood lumber, router cut dovetails for the joinery, and a couple coats of wiping varnish. Thanks for looking.

    Here are three candle holder centerpieces I made. They are about 20" long and 9-10" wide. This was my first time working with Wenge. It looks great, but my planer did not like the stuff. It hard and heavy, but very pretty. My wife and daughter both said that was their favorite one. From left to...
  19. Branch centerpiece

    This is a purely decorative piece that took me three years and two house moves to finish. It has emotional significance for me though. I took my sons for a walk in the local park and we found a nice branch that got broken off by the wind. We took it home, stripped the bark and sanded it. My son...
