  1. Tiny Cup made from Ebony, Bloodwood and Osage Orange

    Tiny Cup made from Ebony, Bloodwood and Osage Orange
  2. Stemmed natual edge cup

    This cup was made from a cut off piece of mesquite that was left over from the lamp column I turned for my neighbor. It finished at 2 3/4" diameter and 4" high and is coated with clear lacquer. I tried to get heart wood, sap wood and bark in the body and left the base alone with the rough bark...
  3. Buba Keg for WoodWorkers

    Since I did the Travel Mug for my wife, I have been wanting to do a mug for myself. Since I always have my Buba Keg with me, I thought I would attempt one of them. 8 piece staved walnut body with an 8 piece segmented base. Hand carved walnut handle. Finish is 12 coats of Old Masters Tung...
  4. Another small cup / bowl

    A finished project showing a 3" diameter cup/bowl made from Ebony, BloodWood and Osage Orange. Glued up with Original Gorilla Glue and polished with Shellawax Cream This is about the max diameter I can do on my lathe without riser blocks I'm regretting not turning the inside down another 1/8...
  5. Wine goblet

    I was in the shop, looking around and saw a piece of aspen that was on the woodpile. You know the story - I cut a block out of the middle of it - and mounted it on the lathe. I was going for something completely different - more like a parfait glass shape. I describe using a lathe as 'coaxing...
  6. Wine goblet

    Grabbed some scrap wood from a neighbor's wood pile. Not sure what species it is, maybe eucalyptus? Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl finish so I can drink from it.
  7. Pine cup with live edge

    I was outside with my mom's husband. He saw this piece of pine branch on the ground. He picked it up and asked, "Can you do anything with this?". This is what I did with it. He likes things with natural edges so I left the top bark on. Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish in case he...
  8. Turned Mesquite Cup - Salvaged Firewood from our land.

    While exploring land we bought this year near where we live in Texas, I came across several mesquite trees that had a lot of dead limbs. It appears that someone had poisoned several large mesquite trees a long time ago and left the trees to rot. I've found at least six such trees, a couple with...
  9. Wooden Cup

    A more traditional project this time. It is a simple little cup/ chalice / what-have-you, made out of a wonderful wood. A friend of mine collects wood when he's on the job (fixing downed power lines) and gave a little hunk of this to me. He thought it was mulberry - it doesn't quite look like...
  10. Beer Swap 2019

    So as I sat there drinking my Red Breast trying to figure out what the hell to make for the swap this year… I looked up and saw the hops wall art I received in last years swap from Tom Regnier. It then dawned on my that I should figure out how to cast hops for a bottle opener handle. I had...
  11. Segmented Ply Wood

    This is just a pine ply wood with a Jacobean stain on it.
  12. Woodturning Project - Goblet

    Hey LJs! So on youtube I reached my 1000th subscriber so to celebrate I posted this video showing how to make a this really nice goblet. I'm pretty happy with it, let me know what you think. See my YouTube Page Here! Enjoy :)
  13. Chalice and Paten

    So, my mother had an idea for how I can market my goblets, make a matching tray and sell them as a chalice and paten set. This was my first attempt. I used walnut and the bace of the chalice has a vaneer of padauk in the middle. I made the top again out of clay on the potters wheel like my...
  14. Mug & plate - bungee turned and carved.

    Mug & plate bungee turned and carved Pictures: 1. The mug in my hand. 2. Shape turned on the bungee lathe. 3. My day out hiking by Loch Doon, what better place to sit and carve. 4. Here they are, mug and plate, ready for a meal. 5. Closed up. 6. 400 grid sandpaper and a honing strap was my tour...
  15. Cedar Goblet

    It would seem the softer the wood, the harder it is to turn. This was left over from some cedar posts I had bought at home depot for a different project (fence). Took me 3 blanks just to get this, and I'm still displeased with it. Horribly displeased. But my wife likes it, so I guess that's all...
  16. Bent curio cabinet

    This curio display cabinet was vaguely inspired by the form of arched railroad bridges (imagine a train cruising along the top of it). The top is made from walnut, both solid and veneered bent laminations; bottom is made from solid hard maple. Glass shelves and accent lights inside hold your...
  17. Mahogany coffee travel mug

    This was made to give me inspiration while on coffee breaks, and if I need to go to the tool/wood store it is fitted to my truck cup holder. I got the block of wood for this from my neighbor after he made a mistake cutting a dovetail for a harp he was building. It had only 1/4" extra to spare...
  18. Shot glass (bowl 40)

    In breaks between waiting for other projects to dry (I've started using Tried and True Varnish Oil for some projects, and it looks like it's going to give great results if I can just be patient enough to do a half dozen coats with a full day for each to dry), I've been playing with the lathe...
  19. Shot glass (bowl 41)

    Another turned (spindle orientation) shot glass. 3 inches (75mm) tall by 1.6 inches diameter (40mm). The walls are approximately 7/64" (2.5mm) thick at the top. The bottom was hand carved with a carving knife to remove the marks from the chuck. Finished with 2 coats of Tried & True Varnish...
  20. Stabilized birch shot glass (bowl 42)

    Another in the series. Stabilized birch dyed black this time. 2 inches (50mm) high by 1.8 inches (45mm) diameter at the top. Kept this one plain and concentrated on thin, even side walls. Calipers say between 3/32 and 1/8 inch (2-3mm). One crack in the side got a couple drops of thin CA glue...
