  1. Curly Maple room screen

    After ten years in the business, this is my first "artsy" piece, made strictly for the fun of it. Panels are curly maple, the legs and arches are ebonized maple. Ebonizing was done with India Ink. A friend of mine, Scott Finnel made the leaded glass following my design. My inspiration came from...
  2. The Three Graces Side Table

    I love art nouveau and decided to try another "artsy" piece, just for the fun of it. AKA "spec" work. Legs are curly maple that has been ebonized and colored with india ink and red dye. the ball is Calcite and the little balls holding up the glass are just glass marbles. This is actually not a...
  3. EBONIZED Karelian Birch DOUBLE-WIDE Bangle

    I've been experimenting with Ebonizing different woods naturally. Through trial and error I have arrived at a good technique. First I let some steel wool sit in vinegar for a few days then I make a jar of really strong black tea and cool it. I saturate the wood with the tea first to elevate the...
  4. "Smoke theres Fire"

    Cherry burl vase, Ebonized, dyed, turned piece. Approx 7" tall.
  5. Ebonized Walnut Frame with Half-lap miters

    About five years ago, my wife and I went on a trip to Savannah. Down by the river we had our portrait drawn by one of the street artists. That picture has sat on our dresser since then while we hemmed and hawwed about what frame to put it in. I finally decided to just make one. I knew that we...
  6. "Vertebrae"

    The announcement for the winter woodworking awards came at a very good time for me. I was just beginning to get back into the shop after taking some time away to heal myself. Last February I had a bad fall that resulted in a non-dislocated fracture of the sacrum….not fun and nothing that can...
  7. EBONIZED PINE COFFEE TABLE, RECLAIMED LUMBER

    So I tried the steel wool / vinegar darkening method that I read about on LJ on this table. It's 23 X 52 X 24. I read that some sort of tea is used after the vinegar is dry. Well, I used coffee instead. Thought it was fitting for a coffee table. I am fairly happy with the results. I even...
  8. Ebonized Ash/Sapele Nightstand

    Pretty straightforward….This was a prototype made from some wormy Ash that my wife decided would become a kid's desk, so the lower shelf got deleted. The finals would be made with walnut and walnut crotch veneer panels but I am not crazy about this design after seeing it come to life. It seems...
  9. Ebonized oak lamp

    I didn't particularly need a new lamp, but I wanted to make something with an organic shape, and play with some finishing techniques, and this idea fit the bill. The lamp is made of five layers of 3/4 inch oak. Some planning was required to make sure I had a suitable conduit for the wire to run...
  10. Mallets for the 2018 Mallet Swap

    My recipient for this years Hammer and Mallet Swap was LJ Poohbah (Neil). After doing some research, I decided to follow Rob Cosman's philosophy which is that sharp tools don't require huge mallets so I made a couple (one to keep) smallish round dovetail/carvers mallets out of Live Oak. I used...
  11. Asian Style cane

    This is what I came up with for the asian inspired cane. The dragon was a little difficult, but to be honest with myself, the finish was the PIA, and it isn't perfect. But I have to stop myself at some point because the price isn't right, if you know what I mean. I hate that time is money...
  12. Kitchen Table Light

    Needed a new light for over the kitchen table. Had some oak scraps and found a matching set of old glass insulators. Lots of compound angle cuts. - (some cussing) Iron & Vinegar Ebonized with Tung oil finish. Drilled holes and mounted candelabra sockets and some "Old" vintage bulbs.
  13. Sapele and Ebonized Walnut TV Stand

    The intent was to create a base where the legs appear to not touch the case and give the illusion of a floating case, topped with a floating top. The Carcass is made from Sapele. It is dovetailed on the corners, and there are Air vents routed into the top surface. The doors are made from 1...
  14. EBONIZED PINE END TABLE, RECLAIMED LUMBER

    My second attempt at the steel wool / vinegar darkening method that I read about on LJ on this table. Length: 23" Width: 22.25" Height: 27" This whole table is made from reclaimed lumber. The top came from a 100+ year old house that collapsed. The 6 X 6 legs are scrap from a house my...
  15. Black Tea

    Another in the series of simple tea boxes. Goncalo Alves with ebonized maple top finished with spray lacquer (satin over gloss) and polished with renaissance wax. Goncalo Alves has some interesting streaks on an orange-ish field. The best side on this one is the back because it got chipped...
  16. Arts and Craft, Craftsman Style Bracket Clock

    This is a Craftsman Style Bracket clock and is fashioned after the Stickley Bracket Clock. It is constructed out of Quarter Sawn White Oak, with ebonized Walnut Pegs. It is shown in two different finishes. The first three pictures it has been stained with Brown Mahogany stain (General...
  17. Ebonized Oak Shadow Box End Table

    This is an end table I made a few years ago-it is solid oak with pocket screw joinery (with plugs) and a 1/4 inch glass top. I started the finish using the vinegar and steel wool ebonizing trick, but wasn't happy with the color (a little too purple), so I covered it with a dark brown oil-based...
  18. Reclaimed Pine Coffee / Ocasional Table (Ebonized)

    This would look amazing in any farmhouse or rustic décor. This is completely reclaimed pine. The table skirt is a 2X10 that came from a 100+ year old house that had fallen. The rough edges are from water damage. They were interesting so I decided to keep them and highlight that. The top came...
  19. Ebonized Round Side Table

    One of those impromptu projects. My wife comes back from the furniture store with a side table she liked, assembles it and the thing stands skewed: legs aren't plum but the top is levelled! Table goes back to the store but not before I take down all dimensions and head to the shop. The top is...
  20. Modern Floating Shelves with Frames

    Here are some floating shelves with floating frames. These combine the ever-popular floating wall shelf with a picture frame border attached via a small groove. The floating shelves are made of white oak, and the frames are walnut. I ebonized the walnut to really add some contrast to the design...
