  1. My first posting - Spoons made from my Fathers Day gift

    This is my first posting to LJ. I've been a lurker for about a year or so. I love looking at all of the projects that are posted. I'm envious of you! Alas…... I do not have the DNA that enables me to actually comprehend "woodworking", so I relegated to carving decoys and spoons. The first pics...

  4. PAINTED WOODDUCK (LIFE-SIZE)

  5. Shotgun Shell Clock with LEDs and Sensor

    Here is my second shotgun shell clock. With this clock I added some bling. See the full build at my Instructables web page from start to finish. Basically I built a box so that I could enclose and hide all the electronics and the clock mechanism. There is a little woodburning included with...
  6. COMMON LOON

He is about 12" to 14" long, and 6" to 7" wide and about 5" or so high. This is the same duck or bird that was featured in the famous classic movie " On Golden Pond "...

  8. Custom Hunting Themed Cigar Humidor

    I was asked to make a cigar humidor as a retirement gift. The retiree was interested in the outdoors and hunting so I themed it to his interests. I made it to fit approx. 50 cigars. Its made of Walnut, maple splines and Maple Burl top. I lined the interior with Spanish Cedar and managed to get...
  9. Wood Duck Nesting Box

    My woodworking club has been asked to make nesting boxes for wood ducks for use in our area. I had some cedar, which is supposed to be ideal for this purpose and slapped this one together. It was a quick project - all butt joints and screws. I hope the ducks enjoy it.
  10. Intarsia Duck Coathanger

    This took me half of my semester in woodshop, and it involved a lot of tedious filing and sanding. I made this for my dad's birthday, and I'm pretty sure he loves it.
  11. Golden Eye Duck in Flight

    I was looking through my image files today, & found this one. As you can see this was carved in 1982. This was my first attempt at carving a Duck in flight. If you look at it closely, you'll see an error I made, & didn't discover it until I was halfway done. Rather than tossing it, I finished...
  12. Duck Portrait

    This picture was something that I thought was really cool to look at. Then I started cutting on it and a year later after I put it down numerous times I finally finished it. I just could not get into cutting this picture. Now that it is done, I really like it and I'm glad that it is finished...
  13. wobbly duck push toy

    Today i worked in the shop and saw that my sliding table is really off (not parallel at all to the blade) and all the material that I cut on it for a magazine rack I am building has to be cut again. You probably know how this feels…. So, instead I made a duck that wobbles when you walk it for...
  14. Lathe Art Collages

    My first home was over 100 years old. When I did some renovations I saved the Lathe that was in the walls. Plaster was spread over the lathe back then. There was no sheet rock panels. One day I decided that I would try my hand at making some art collages from it. Its just like making a photo...
  15. Display cases for an Eye Dr. friend.

    This was a favor for a close friend who needed display cases for eyeglasses. Four foot square. Solid cherry. Piano wire holding the glasses. Working with piano wire is like working with a two year old, you think it will be easy, then all hell breaks loose. The coil of wire will quickly fill...
  16. Lacewod, maple, and brass segmented duck call.

    Here you go gang… Lacewood and maple segmented duck call with a brass tube going down the center. Holes in the segments stairstep down around the call. Pretty difficult project to pull off and it all started because I got my math wrong when cutting up the segments, leaving a hole in each...

  19. Green Wing Teal Hen

    Here is my Green Wing Teal Hen that I recently finished. It took me a long time to do since I only work on it a few hours a week. I did enter it into the Pacific Flyway Decoy Ass. show and took a first in Novice Division and Third in my Category.

    Cigar pen made from a mule deer antler shed. The band around the middle is a tag used to track the migration of ducks known as a "Duck Band". This was commissioned by one of my co workers that is an avid deer and duck hunter. The pen kit is an Apprentice Cigar in gun metal grey from Craft...
