  2. Such a Waste

    Rick was in the building mood this weekend and so I put my wish list in and we made a couple waste bins out of the pine boards we got a couple weeks ago. The bins are nothing fancy, just the way I like it, and will probably get all distorted because they are fresh boards, but that will just add...
  3. Coffee cup ring box

    This project resulted from my wife needing a place to put her ring when she washed dishes -so she would not lose it. The cup itself is elm as far as I can tell and the saucer is maple. The top is wenge and the handle is walnut. the "steam" rising off the wenge is represented by painted dowels...

  5. Rolling pins, mallet and large persuader

    I"v got a new tool. It's an older Sears 12" X 40" lathe. I built a table for it last week with a 2X4 laminated top and 2X4's for the legs and supports. I'll be adding several bags of cement or sand to dampen vibrations. I should have taken photos of the bench, but what the heck, it's a shop...

    Had a scrap of elm that came off the edge of a piece I'm making into a stool, and decided it was big enough for a teaspoon. Knocked it out in about an hour and a half. Coping saw, spokeshave, hook knife and slojd, then some sandpaper and food-safe linseed oil.

  8. American Elm Natural Edge Bowl

    This was a fun to turn natural edge bowl with a mystery wood that I later determined to be American Elm. The wood was found in a pile of cut wood on the side of a residential street, with no leaves to look at to help with species identification. I turned this bowl within a week of its being cut...

  10. Butterfly table

    Made with Elm, it matches the 4 chairs, 2 arm chairs and my dining counter with the 3 matching bar stools. It is loosely based on M. Fortune's article in FW.

  12. cutting board from scraps

    Ash, Oak and Elm. Since I cut a lot of 2 inch slabs, I get a lot of 2 inch scrap. This was my first cutting board. Lots of imperfections but I learned a lot. Finished with mineral oil. It's about 12×12. Thanks for looking
  13. Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

    Kids have so many toys these days, it's very hard for a grandpa to know what to get for a five-year-old's birthday. My solution is to make something for my grandchildren, and give them a little cash along with that so they can buy whatever toy they might want. This year the gift is a jigsaw...

  15. Spalted elm spoons

    Two spoons from scraps from the large slab of spalted elm that's going to be my new workbench and shop stool. The smaller one was a scrap I normally would have tossed, but I decided to try making a narrow spoon from it. It's almost all heartwood. The larger spoon is almost all sapwood. Both...
  16. extraordinary pattern and grain

    I have been been working on the elm blocks that was given to me, the patterns in the wood have been so spectacular that I did not want any to go to waste by cracking. These are the last of the real pretty ones. Its amazing what bugs or parasiites can do to alter the wood to a thing of beauty...

  18. Miracle bowl, end log sealer

    This block of crouch wood ended up having five branches dividing out, it was fresh cut wood and very wet. I thought the end wood most likely crack when dry. I had some end log sealer that I had never used so thought I would give it a try. Surprised to see it was white and like a paste. I then...
  19. Elm pie end table

    Got several pies from a very old elm tree that I will be making into tables for fun. The pie is Elm and the base is Hickory that I got from a pile of throwaways from a lumber mill. The pie is actually a branch from a 150+ tree. There are 70 growth rings in each side. It was cut down in 2012...
  20. Windsor chair in yew and elm

    Another gift; this one for my step-daughter Jane. The yew tree was damaging their house and so sadly we had to fell it. Still, it lives on in her kitchen in the form of this chair. Very much an English style, it's all from that tree except for the seat itself which is a piece of elm. The logo...
