  3. Table Clock

    I made this table clock a couple of years ago. It's made out of tigar maple and Cocobolo. I think this was the last item I made from Cocobolo, because some people have an alergic reaction to the dust.

  7. Picture Frames

  10. Hurricane Coasters

    The coasters themselves are made from a small tree lost in Hurricane Ike in my neighborhood. I was just able to fit them under the miter saw and chop off about a dozen pieces. I let them dry for a couple of weeks picking out the ones that didn't check for the set. I finished them with about...

  12. Japanese Box - My Take

  13. "Sahara" a sculpted cocobolo box

    This box has the wildest shaping so far, blending the top with the sides and each side with the next. At least to some degree, yet still trying to maintain a free form feel. A set design laid out in exact increments would still be difficult, but easier. My goal was to shape the top into a...

  18. GaryK's design - My results

    Here is the link to GaryK's original post the same design. While I didn't have any snakewood (or have seen it for that matter), I thought it worked well with some other species. I'll be curious to see which holds an edge the best. These are quite simple to make and only require a bit more...
