  1. Beer mug

    Cut down a hackberry at work. I liked the pattern in the diseased wood and decided to make a beer mug for my boss. The heartwood turned out to be be pretty soft and rotten. I put several coats of wood hardener on it. I had never used it before, but it seemed to do the job. I gather the stuff...
  2. More Wood Turnings

    More wood turning projects. THe bowl and larger tree are walnut and maple. The small christmas tree and shot glass are cocobolo (i think).
  3. Kumiko and Tool Box for Grandkids

    I've had a lot of shop time recently and decided to make a toolbox for my grandson and a kumiko box for my granddaughter. Like most little boys my grandson is fascinated with tools and his current inventory, while plastic, still need a good place to be stored. Right??? The box is cherry, the...

  4. Solo Cup Holder

    So my wife was having a party on one of my "shop days" this week. She's always looking to have everything "perfect." I noticed that she had many decor items (strategically placed things I've made for her) but the drink station looked rather blah. I had an ash cutoff and an idea… Hence, my...
  5. Mimosa cup / bowl ( #28 )

    A while ago, Pottz sent me a care package that included a piece of mimosa. I've been fighting it for months, and every time I would turn it, it seemed to want to fly into a million pieces. Tried hollowing it with a spade bit. Then tried a Forstner bit. Finally got a side-scraper to finish the...
  6. Wood Tankard

    Made a 3 wooden tankards for Christmas gifts this year. I used some different types of cherry for the contrasting colors, cut the wood into staves with the angle set to 11.5 degrees, and finished it with pour-on epoxy. After all of my research, the epoxy "should" be food safe if left to cure...
  7. Turned canarywood cup with GloPoxy (bowl 31)

    An experiment: I wanted to try using GloPoxy to decorate a cup, as a friend had asked for a glow-in-the-dark cup. I started with a canarywood cup and turned a few shallow grooves into it, planning to fill them with the GloPoxy, and then turn everything smooth again. The cup came from a 3×3x6...
  8. Elm cup (bowl #8)

    Had a piece of elm crotch that I'm going to turn a bigger bowl from, but when I went to square it up, I had a fairly nice piece about 3 inches square. The grain orientation was a little weird because it was near the crotch, so I figured it would be good practice. I started out with the...
  9. Mistake turned into a Chalice

    Well, I never intended to do this but, I made a mistake when turning one of the feet for my new dresser. I made the undercut too small so in my spare time I made this Chalice. This is the first time I ever tried to make something that had to be cleaned out on the inside. It stands 5" tall and...
  10. Eucalyptus Cup

    Small eucalyptus cup made for a neighbor. Wood was from a local tree. Finished with Arm-R-Seal semigloss.
  11. Ficus Cup

    Wood salvaged from a local ficus tree that was being trimmed. Finished with Arm-R-Seal.
  12. Ficus Stemmed Cup

    Cup made from a ficus branch cut from a local tree. The branch split while drying, so I filled it with some extra died epoxy I was using on a different project - that is the dark line on the cup. Preserved a spot of the branch surface (right side of 3rd photo). Finished with Arm-R-Seal base...
  13. Curved elm cup (#15)

    An elm cup, about 3.5 inch 90mm) diameter, by 4 in (100mm) tall. Grain oriented vertically, so the bottom of the cup is end grain, since I thought that would be the prettiest orientation and I was starting with a cubic 5 inch blank. Finished with tung oil / shellac friction finish on the...
  14. Small claro walnut cup (#16)

    Small (3.5 inch (80mm) diameter, by 2¾ inch (65mm) tall cup. I had meant to turn more details into this, but got fascinated by the grain and ended up making a fairly simple shape. Finished with tung oil / shellac friction finish. I'm thinking about turning a lid for it from another piece of...
  15. KITCHEN UTENCIL STAND

    Kitchen utencil stand / cup, made of cherry wood 2 cm thick. Parts cut on tablesaw with 22.5 degree tilted saw to form octogonal shape. Grooves on three of them I made before glueing. Bottom just glued. All cone shape turned. Compartments made of 4mm beech plywood. Finish wood oil.
  16. Maple cup (bowl #17)

    This is a cup (a tall skinny bowl, right?) turned from western big leaf maple. The blank I had was a 4" cube, so I held it all different directions looking at the grain, and decided to turn it with the grain oriented spindle-style, meaning it runs almost straight up and down on the sides. It's a...
  17. Maple cup (23)

    Western long leaf maple is fast becoming a favorite turning wood of mine. This cup started as a 4 inch cube, and when I was inspecting it, I noticed a branch that had been grown over. Looked like it would be a cool feature in the wood if I could get everything right. I turned a "foot" on this...
  18. Bowling League 2022 Beer "glass"

    I had such great ideas for this swap. BTW if you have not joined a swap you should - it will push your limits and you will learn a lot. I made a small Movingui Salt bowl just to be sure I'd have something to ship if my invention failed. Shown here in the hand of my recipient JD77 because I...
  19. Douglas Fir Tumblers / Cups

    I made 11 of these from an 8 foot Douglas Fir 4×4 with an interesting wavy grain pattern. They are 5" tall and 3.25" across. They hold about 14oz - perfect for a bottle of beer plus a bit of foam. I should have had 12, but I destroyed the first one working out my process. They look simple, but...
