  1. Potpurri dish from walnut with pewter lid

    So it's Mothers Day and i turned up this potpurri dish for the wifey from some figured walnut. She likes butterflies. The pewter lid is from Peachtree. They had a special on a set of 12 lids with all different cast designs. I will be making more of these. Link to Pewter Lids
  2. Wenge Wood Man Dish! (or woman)

    African Wenge Wood Man Dish (or woman) The man dish measures 5.5×1.4 Inches. I wanted something not to big, manly with a shine, and have enough thickness and weight that if needed, I could also use it for home defense! Turned with my home made carbide tipped tools, sanded and finished with...
  3. From Wine to Candy

    The idea for these came when the wife dropped a wine glass and the bottom broke off but leaving the glass and stem in place. She felt bad even though it was an inexpensive glass so I got the idea to save it by turning it into a small candy dish. A little roughing of the short stem with sandpaper...
  4. Ladybug Candy Dishes with Swivel Wing covers

    These are little candy dishes I designed. They each are about 6" in diameter. They are collapsible, which means that they can sit flat. This is possible because I cut the inner rings by cutting a spiral on a 4" bevel. When cut, the wood resembles a spring and you can pop it into place. The...
  5. Lathe turned candy dish

    This lathe turned candy dish is made from walnut, mahogany (rim), yellow heart and padauk. This was the 1st bowl I ever turned. It's not perfect, but learning from my mistakes is what it's all about.
  6. Square Turned Walnut Dish

    This started last November as a project in a woodturning class at Annapolis Woodworks. I was not able to finish before the class ended. The grain in the wood looked pretty special, so I decided to hang onto it and finish it. Recently, I finally got around to working on it. It would not fit...
  7. Routered dish for grandpa

    Here is a routered bowl I made for my grandfather for his 90th birthday. It is made of walnut, maple and cherry, with mahogany "stringing" if you want to call it that. Dimensions are about 12"x6"x 4" tall if I recall correctly. My grandfather is essentially blind, but could make out the...
  8. Another little bowl my wife claimed, cherry wood!

    I actually made this one specifically for my wife knowing she would take it anyway. This is gift #5 in our tradition of 14 days of Valentine's. What do you think?
  9. Box Elder Dish

    I had 8 logs sitting in front of my barn for 3 years and wanted them out of there. Some were box elder and some were spalted maple but I did not seal the ends and they were cracked all the way through. I showed these to the electrical inspector that inspected my solar system and told him there...
  10. Itty Bitty Pretties

    I got into spindle turning about 10 years ago and then bowl turning a couple of years later. While trying my hand at hollowing, I encountered typical beginner difficulties and relegated several pieces of wood to the "kindling bin." Two of these pieces were chunks of Bay. I recently learned that...
  11. hexagonal pedestal dish

    This was cut from alder and black walnut. I worked at it on and off for about 3 weeks. By far the hardest and most frustrating part was getting the bevels cut accurately, as this was done on the scroll saw, which is great for intricate cuts and curves, but not accurate straight lines. The edges...
  12. Knife and fork - Cuchillo y tenedor

    Cutlery set matching the end grain dish for roast. A true novelty in these land. I glue the wood and an experienced man on steel did the rest (was very happy with the result). A sum of knowledge for a very nice result. The woods used are guayibira and guatambú, and Titebond III glue. Hope you...
  13. Juniper dish

    I have been practicing carving wood dishes from juniper. This is my latest attempt.
  14. a box, a dish and earrings

    the box is made of 1/4" oak, and it cant get much simpler, just butt joints and an 1/8" plywood bottom the dish is carved from walnut, it was just a cutoff scrap, this made me realize i need a bent or spoon gouge if im going to make dishes and bowls the earrings are my second pair, made of...
  15. Lidded Candy Dish

    This is a maple plywood candy dish that is 4.5" dia. and 3" high with a lid that has the grain going 90 degrees to the dish. The best way to bring out the beauty of plywood is to have a convex or concave surface and I tried to do that everywhere on this piece. My first project of the new year...
  16. Smooth Sumac Spoon with Dish

    Howdy, my lumber jock friends! More green woodenware here to share with you. This project was all done in Smooth Sumac with a cameo by some additional new spoons in the mix! I did not have a lot of timber for a larger bowl, so I made do with what I had and went for it. This is only my second...

    Just finished a bowl I turned from a white oak burl. It was finished with a coat of danish oil and three coats of polyurethane.
