  3. Claro Walunt Tree to Lumber

    This is some claro black walnut that was cut down in California. It was my first tree I had milled down… a lot of heavy lifting initially untill I found a rancher with some heavy machinary to do the milling. Very nice looking slabs I got out of this. More to come. Now comes the air drying...
  4. Gold-I-Light

    Inspired the night before. I personally love the pith in the middle of the shell. It mean so much. It is like an umbilical cord. The endgrain slab was the egg. The immediate outcome is my interpretation of the life that was born. Check it out on youtube. We had a blast! The turtle is in private...
  5. Rustic Cabin

    I am not sure if this falls under the woodworking projects umbrella but… it involved a ton of wood and it was definitely work. My Dad and I have been building this hunting cabin for quite some time. The pine trees that were used for the porch columns, rafters, ridge poles and main beam were...
  6. Mantle Clock

    Hello everyone! Have been lurking around for a while, but never posted anything here until now… So, here it is, my first project published here. :) This is a well-known project from WoodSmith/PlansNOW. I made some minor changes, like reducing the size and adding flutes on the sides. Original...
  7. From a log on the side of the road...

    We have a couple of acres of wooded gardens with trails, since I started woodworking I've been building a few benches and plant shelves. I saw a pile of logs on the way home the other day and threw a chunk of what I think is Sycamore in my truck. I cut it in half with my chainsaw and made some...
  8. Log Deer

    I was bored with boards so I decided to make a log deer. I saw a picture on LJ projects. The body is pecan, the head cherry and legs, ears, tail, neck are oak. I shaped the tenons on a shave horse with a draw knife. It about 4 foot tall. I think she's lonely I should make mate to go with her. My...
  9. Mushrooms

    I had trimmed a few dead branches off the locust tree and I knew my wife wanted some new mushrooms for around the trees (the old ones were cracked and chipped from the deer knocking them over). This time , instead of a round base for them to sit on like the last ones, I put a 1/4 steel rod in...
  10. Box Elder Bowl ( Nest Bowl)

    This is from a wedge of wood at the bottom of a tree that blew down in LJ Garry Strout's yard. Thanks Garry. It was box elder so I took it to see if there was much red in it before we came back for the rest of the tree. Well there was, so it is a female box elder tree. This bowl is 9 1/2" in...
  11. cherry globe lamp

    This still did not come out right. I've been piddling with it for a long time, shelving it & waiting to find the right root stand, but i am still not happy. The root doesn't match; i probably should have stained it to match…oh, well, it is kindof fun anyways. The cherry globe is a branch hole...
  12. Another Log Deer (fawn)

    Well the doe that I made was looking for its little one, so I couldn't help myself. I had some sycamore scraps so I made a little fawn. I used a draw knife to shape the tenons. It took about an hour and half to finish it. It was fun making them, I think I will make some more. I like when people...
  13. Wing Top Bowl

    This bowl was made from the same log as the last bowl I posted Maple Candy Dish. To see the log it came from you can go to the blog on my Chainsaw Sawhorse I built . The bowl is made of rock maple and it is 7 ¾" across the top and 4 ¾" along the bottom. It stands 4 ½" tall with the bowl sides...
  14. Live Edge Maple side table

    This is a slab of Maple about 2" thick X 16" X 13". It came from a tree on my property about 2 years ago. I cut the slab with my chainsaw, then used my router to level it up on both sides, following that with a sanding disc on a grinder, finishing up with sanderpaper, 50 grit, 80, 150, 220...
  15. New Chainsaw for Grandpa

    This is my modern take on a very old hand tool. I know that chainsaws have been around since well before gas powered engines were invented. But I was having trouble finding a used one to restore, even ebay was no help. And I really wanted to get one for my Grandpa for Christmas. He's a...
  16. Pine natural edge table and bench

    Since we were doing so well with the natural edge benches we decided to try to make a table to match. We've sold the three he made and he is working on another order. They are 2 inch thick, natural edge, unfinished pine. These were cut with a chainsaw then the ends are planed smooth with an...
  17. the only thing saving this project is the beauty of the wood itself

    We cut this lovely hunk of walnut off of the log we use to sit on by the fire outside (not to be confused with the one we sit on by the fire inside It is hurried and full of mistakes and fillers like all of this year's Christmas projects, but… (better photos would be nice, but i didn't get a...
  18. Two quick bookcases

    I made these two bookcases when I was really big on two tones of wood being used together. Lumber is box store pine, stain is minwax. I thought it was kind of cool to run the vertical support through each shelf and then pin it with a dowel on the edge. That actually turned out to be quite the...
  19. Trash Can Holder

    This is a trash can holder that i made for my aunt for a commission. its made out of sycamore, which is a wood that i would not recommend. its a challenge to work with and not overly hard but its not something i would recommend. i went over all the construction and everything on my blog. the...
