  3. 50 Year Anniversary Gift Intarsia Wall-Hanging

    This one made me remember why I like doing this. Lately I have been making work to sell, but this one is for my wife's parents 50th anniversary and when I'm making one with someone in mind I have a lot more fun. I combined some different methods that I have used in some of the other pieces...
  4. November Turnings

    Just posting a few of my recent lathe projects that I made for Christmas gifts. Just your run of the mill project kits from Rockler and Woodcraft. My family and friends love when Christmas comes around. By now, they just expect gifts from my wood shop each year. These have been a nice break...
  5. Four More Marking Gauges

    These four making gauges were made from brass ones that I purchased. I turned down the brass to my original dimensions and then turned the wood cover from exotic woods to dress them up. I was told by a friend that African black wood is " chiippy"...that it is brittle and chips break off. I did...

    Koa main body, with a Cocobolo ring. Each segment of the Cocobolo ring is separated by maple veneer to create an outline. The bowl is 6" diameter. I only had a small piece of Koa, and originally planned to turn out a solid bowl, but couldn't stand the thought of turning that much Koa into...
  7. Lazy Dragon Intarsia Wall Hanging

    This one ended up being real challenge to finish. I have to admit I might have bit off more than I could chew on this one. It has 387 pieces and ranges from 3 in to ½ in depth. I have never been so ready to finish a project. All the pieces, spacers, and gluing all were very difficult on this...
  8. Cocobola wood A/C air vent vanes for 73 Chevy El Camino

    Well here is something you don't see to often or ever. I made these vent vanes from cocobola wood that I sliced 1/8th. in thick.

  10. Old Friends Intarsia Wall-Hanging/Carving

    This was a fun one to make because I love to add real life things into my projects to make them look more real.

  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am making a small jewelry box out of cocobola. Here is the rub: The sides are angled 30 degrees. That of course is making glue up difficult. I have not started to glue yet, but my dry runs show me it is going to be difficult to get the proper "pressure" in the right places, for the right...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    I noticed these 2 boxes of walnut on eBay. By my calculations , with shipping, the cost is $8.59 and $6.49 /bdft respectively. Why not just go to the lumber store and get what you need if you are paying that much? Just curious?
