  1. A Couple of Spoons

    Just playing around with making some spoons! The lighter spoon is made from a limb of English walnut and the darker spoon is made from a limb of Black walnut. I rough cut the shape on the bandsaw and used a crook knife to clear the bowls. The lighter one I used files and sandpaper to shape it...
  2. Wine Bottle Stopper Run

    Heres a few stoppers I made for my sisters friend. They are opening a winery apparently, and thought these would be a cool gift idea for their customers. They are made from Maple Burl, Figured Black Walnut, Spalted English Walnut and Birdseye Maple (with dyed red beads). This was the first time...
  3. Large English Walnut Rocking Chair

    This is a large English walnut rocking chair I made a while back. It is for sale. The wood came from near Leesburg, VA and as I was shaping the back leg top a bullet was revealed. It remains a part of the headrest.
  4. Walnut dinning table

    The table top (1 m x 2,35 m) is made of english walnut. I cut the english walnut tree myself. The Legs (11,4 cm x 11,4 cm x 73 cm) are made of black walnut. I cut bookmatched walnut pairs for each two sides (7mm in thickness) wich I glued on pine. I carefull selected the bookmatched pair for...
  5. English Walnut Rocking Chair

    This is an English walnut rocking chair I recently completed for Kyle. It took a week to figure out how I was going to use the wood and then a week taking the wood apart and putting it back together to get the boards I wanted then two weeks to complete the chair. It was a lot of fun.
  6. Chainsaw Bowl

    I got bored one afternoon and decided to try carving a bowl with my chainsaw. This is what came out! The wood is English Walnut cut down from a neighbors yard. I primarily used the chainsaw for this but I did use a band saw, jointer, and some hand tools too. It has Watco Butcher Block finish...
  7. Fringed Top Ringmaster bowl w/Fluted Sides

    Believe it or not, this bowl was a mistake. What I mean is, that it is critical to get the angle of the Ringmaster set just right for the ring segments to align properly. What happened here is that I set the angle too sharply thus the misaligned rings. I figured I would just turn this screw...
  8. New Turkey Trumpets

    These are by far the most complicated thing I have ever turned. Not only are the internal dimensions a closely guarded secret but there are so many steps in the process to figure out that the first few of these were not fun. These take no less than 5 drill bits, custom jamb chucks and a steady...
  9. New Handles for Sandwich Knives from Our Deli

    Here's some before and after pictures of some sandwich knives used at our deli. As you can see in the second picture, the handles where sort of nasty looking. I did a quick job of replacing the handles. Only three of the four made it into the "after" picture because one was back in service...
  10. "Dorothy" display cabinet.

    This display cabinet was custom build for a friend of ours, to display an heirloom Dorothy doll, from the Wizard of Oz. If you are interested in the details of the design of this cabinet, you can check out my shop update that covers the design of ot here If you are interested in how I made...
  11. tall table (walking)

    Legs quartered from twisted length of gunstock stock, 5'9" tall. Used as display in galleries. Pretty sturdy considering.
  12. European Walnut Bowl

    Here is a bowl that I turned recently and is already in use by my wife… It is made of Euro. Walnut which is a total pleasure to turn! I recommend it to anyone who likes turning as it is not too hard and not to soft it polishes nicely with a rich color! The bowl in the pic is oiled, probably...
  13. Old Friends Intarsia Wall-Hanging/Carving

    This was a fun one to make because I love to add real life things into my projects to make them look more real. Using some old rusty chains, hooks, some old rope with the the fence made from our old deck we tore down last year. I did not sand or do anything to the old deck to make it look like...
  14. Lyre Chair

    This is my Lyre Chair design. It is built with Maloof style joinery and sculpting. I tried to make it my own a bit by and added the lyre look as I was fond of the classical Phyfe saber leg chair. I have built them from Myrtlewood, Curly Maple and English Walnut. The first chairs had sort of a...

    A clock with primary wood Yellow Cedar from Southeast Alaska, (picked up in Ketchikan while traveling through a few years ago, from a small custom sawmill), clock face is English Walnut, and number pips are maple. This clock is for my son and his family who are living in Alaska. The art tile is...

    This clock has primary wood of spalted Maple, with a face of English Walnut and number pips from Maple. It's for my daughter and husband. She likes frogs and collects ceramic frogs- thus the art tile of a frog.

    This last clock I am keeping for myself. It's primary wood is reclaimed California Redwood (my California heritage) that I get from a small mill in Crescent City, Ca. The face is maple and the pips are English walnut. The tile is a moose (my Alaskan heritage). Thanks for looking.
  18. Gunstock Bowl

    This was made from an off cut from an English walnut stock blank. I have a friend that is a fabulous stockmaker and he gives me his scraps sometimes. It would make you cry to see what he burns in his wood stove. The bowl is my best piece that I have turned so far, the wall thickness is very...
  19. Salt Shaker & Peppermill Set

    I finished & posted my bamboo countertop yestereday so that gave me some time to finish a new S & P set. I purchased the turning blank from my buddy the "Board Hoarder" on the east side of Seattle about a year ago. He had it marked as an English Walnut Burl. It was a beautiful piece so I...
