  1. Folding beard combs

    I had the good fortune to be temporarily unemployed last year and took that time to make some sawdust. I made two different styles of beard combs. One is a black walnut case/handle with maple tines and teak lamination with a cherry pin. The other is cherry with maple tines and cocobolo...
  2. Hair Comb - Cherry and Rosewood

    After a few previous attempts (which can be seen in my earlier projects), I think I've settled on a design that I really like. I decided to forgo the buttons on the grip, in favor of a more sleek, minimalist approach. Higher resolution images can be seen here. In particular, I'm pretty proud...
  3. Hardwood Wooden Hair Comb

    I had some free time one weekend and thought it would be fun to utilize scraps in a fun, crafty way. The result was a three species hardwood comb. Here is a vid of the build. Thanks for watching!
  4. Wooden Beard Combs

    One from Walnut and one from Blood wood, I made these combs for my cousin's husband for Father's Day. I sanded them to 320 grit and used Dutch Oil and then finished off with a paste wax. I almost wish I had kept one for myself honestly.
  5. Hair Comb - Walnut & Mahogany

    Thought it might be fun to try one of these. After doing a little research, it turns out there are all sorts of benefits to wooden combs over plastic. Not the least of which is the complete lack of static. It's also more gentle on your scalp. And the wood fibers help to spread natural oils from...

  7. I've been working on my wood combs, all the live long day

    After the successful launch of my Etsy store, I've been cranking out the combs left and right. Trying new woods and streamlining my processes has been interesting and quite fun. I've determined that I absolutely love cocobolo. Black & white ebony and claro walnut burl are also extremely nice...
  8. Hair Comb in Purpleheart and Spalted Birch

    Here is the comb I made for my wife for Christmas. She says it's the most romantic present anyone has ever given her. Inspired by the work of BTimmons… Thanks! Finished with two coats of shellac and then buffed with beeswax. It feels amazing even in my knotty curly mess.
  9. Hair Comb #2, Cherry & Walnut

    This is my second try at a wooden comb, this time using cherry with walnut. The grain on cherry is tighter and its pores aren't as big, which makes it better suited for running through hair compared to walnut, which I used on my first try. This piece of cherry has a dark mineral streak...
  10. The wooden comb business has been keeping me busy.

    I haven't posted any projects for quite a while, but don't let that lead you to believe I haven't been busy! Between my Etsy store, my .com site, local festivals, and large wholesale orders from a handful of select retailers, I've probably made about a thousand of these things by now. Not even...
  11. Combs - trying something new!

    With summer art shows coming up I wanted to try something a little different - and with all the inspiration I get from here I thought I would try a few things that others have posted. This is a maple and padauk comb. I made a jig to do this and used some scrap cutoffs I had. I might make some...
  12. 10' Birds Eye Maple Dinning Table

    I offered to build a ten foot dinning room table as a house warming present for my brother in law. We used a technique which cut down on the weight considerably. This technique consisted of using a resin coated honeycomb cardboard, which was one inch tall, for the center core of the table. This...
  13. Beard Combs

    1 - Here's a selection from my first batch of beard combs showcasing different woods for the grip. I have one more in wenge, one more in African mahogany, and two more in curly maple. I've quickly fallen in love with bocote, which makes up the main body for each of these. Each one is shaped a...
  14. The comb.

    This hair comb made in walnut inlaid with silver,brass,stone enamel.
  15. Wooden Combs

    This a project I made with some leftovers from the pull dog (cedrillo is the dark one, and lenga). I've resawn the 1" lenga to something like 1/4" putting my jigsaw in a homemade table support. I was inpired by this video () and by not having enough money to buy one. The teeth were cut by hand...
  16. Making a comb with curved mortise and tenon with hand tools

    I made this hair comb using tigerwood and hard maple. It is 2 1/4×8 1/4, and it varies in thickness from 7/16 to 3/4. To make the curve in the handle a five gallon bucket was put to good use, which makes a smooth curve and keeps it square too. In order to add strength, there is a 1/8 inch...
  17. Comb Back Windsor Chair

    I made this chair while on vacation. No power tools! No nails or screws! No sandpaper! I used oak for the spindles, crest and arms. Bass wood was used for the seat and chaerry to build up the hands and for the under carriage. I had the chair chair photographed professionally and thought the...
  18. Wooden combs

    Hi folks, It's been another long spell without projects to post as I've been busy with…other projects, including welding (steel+wood furniture), and car restoration. Here are some wooden combs, severely inspired by those made by B. Timmons. First time I make them, and all my respect goes to...
  19. Wooden comb made out of recycled Teak with brass inlays

    I made this wooden comb partly using my CNC router. It turned out fine, but there was a lot of sanding involved at the end to make the teeth a little thinner. I salvaged the piece of teak from an old deck, after jointing and planing it looked good as new ! Inlayed some polished brass pieces to...
  20. The wooden combs that my wife and I make

    Still going strong with the wooden combs! My wife and I have been doing this crazy thing for a couple of years now, and we're loving it. Haven't posted here in a while for lack of larger projects, but I have to throw some love over to LJ's. We've been cranking out other items like razors...
