  1. Whisky Cabinet

    Single malt scotch is the best whisky in the world, scientifically proven to make your beard longer and your tools sharper. Great whisky deserves a fine cabinet; I had been keeping my whisky in a IKEA particle board cabinet and felt like I was keeping a beautiful princess in a castle made of...

  3. Fancy Wood Cane #027: Quilted Maple & Claro Black Walnut

    This is one of my favorites. I found some really nice quilted maple and decided it needed to be a 3 Dimensional piece to show off the illumination. This was one time the wood really spoke out to me and insisted that it had more potential than as a flat surfaced object. One can spend hours...
  4. Fancy Cane #029: Claro Black Walnut & Figured Cherry

    This is a more conservative combination of woods. It's one of the more simple combinations of wood that I've done, but I've shaped the handle to be as ergonomic as possible and with some nice design to it to give the user a sense of style. (I am trying to abolish those ugly aluminum and simple...
  5. 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...

A little wide at the base, but I like the shape. Turned from a piece of Claro Walnut from Rustfever First of several pieces I will be...
  7. sculpted rocker in spectacular bastogne walnut

    I apologize for the picture quality. They really don't do this walnut justice . The chair was made from three sequential bastogne walnut slabs. I'm super happy with how it came out. A big thank you to Hal Taylor and ofcourse Sam Maloof.
  8. Wooden plane for my 3 year old son

    On Father's Day I got the gift of some uninterrupted shop time in the morning and early afternoon. Felt good. That evening my 3 year old son Milo asked me what I was doing, and I said I was making things. He said, "Daddy, can you make me something?" Why not? So I told him that I would. He, of...
  9. Another Claro Walnut Slab Table

    Well OK … We just finished another big claro walnut slab table. We've made quite a few of them now and there is more information about them in the 'claro walnut slab table' category on my blog than a person could likely want to read. (If not, be sure to scroll to 'older posts'). But, we like...
  10. Claro Walnut, Art Deco, Jewelry Box

    So I just finished this box. I didn't do any woodworking over the fall and winter so it was fun to get back into it. This box is for my cousin who likes Mickey Mouse. I had a much easier time shaping this box than I did with my first one. I used 30 grit planing sandpaper on my benchtop sander...
  11. Custom Stabilized Redwood Burl Fly Fishing Net with Rubber Net

    Been a while since I posted as I've been making nets for people all over the world. Kind of crazy!! I Wanted to share a few nets with you that I recently finished. I think working alone makes you just crazy LOL! This is a custom stabilized Redwood Burl custom fly fishing net I've made for a...
  12. Black Lightening Claro Walnut.

    "Black Lightening" Here is another Claro Walnut Burl Hollow Form / Vase. I decided to name this one "Black Lightening" because when I filled the cracks in it, they jumped out as jet black streaks across the form. It also has very light streaks running across it that are natural. One of the...
  13. Picture frame

    Very simple picture frame. Made of maple and beautiful claro walnut (juglans hindsii). No finish applied.

  15. egg box

    I built a box for carrying egg cartons for a couple friends with 16 chickens, using oak I got from their property.The structure is based on this tool box http://lumberjocks.com/projects/154370, but with dovetails. I put dovetails on everything. They refer to the flock as veloci-chickens so I put...
  16. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  17. Claro Walnut Vases

    I have been wanting to try my hand at some serious hollowing, so I broke down-broke open my piggy bank, that is-and bought one of those Jamieson tools. I made a series of six vases, in paris of three different species. These are the two made of Claro Walnut. This Claro Walnut was from a local...
  18. Claro Walnut and Bubinga Rocking Chair

    Latest two rocking chairs--- A waterfall bubinga rocker for Colorado and a Claro walnut rocker for Arkansas. The claro came from Skipper at Goodhope Hardwoods
  19. Drift

    This is the first shaped box I have done without a center piece, a medallion, and this was something I wanted to try and also saved me a lot of time. I like the effect. The body is a wild piece of Pecan/Hickory that our cabinet shop tossed because it had hairline checking and didnt blend with...
