  1. Fancy Wood Cane #027: Quilted Maple & Claro Black Walnut

    This is one of my favorites. I found some really nice quilted maple and decided it needed to be a 3 Dimensional piece to show off the illumination. This was one time the wood really spoke out to me and insisted that it had more potential than as a flat surfaced object. One can spend hours...
  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. A few of my builds

    I'm a life long woodworker, I've built everything from houses to cabinets to furniture. Guitar building is my latest obsession, I find it very satisfying, and relaxing, except when I cut the sides 3 times only to find there still to short.
  4. Wine Bottle Stoppers - Wood Turning

    A few months ago I walked into a woodshop and kindled the flame of an old interest. Something new and exciting that stuck out to me was the wood lathe. The first time I saw the lathe I wanted to get someone to show me how to use it. After a month of catches and slips I bought my own and have...
  5. Ojoche Sofa Bed

    Having an abundance of the Ojoche' (O ho chee) wood in inventory, we use it for many projects. It's a hardwood, and pretty easy to work with. I found designs online, and, measured our room to see how big we needed to build it. We like how it turned out. We need at least one armchair to go with...
  6. Fancy Wood Cane #023: Claro Black Walnut & Maca Wood

    This is one of my favorites, as the handle is an extremely dense piece of Claro Black Walnut and the shaft is Maca which is not commonly found, although it's being farmed and is quite beautiful. This is an earlier photo of this cane when I had first applied pure tung oil and tried a wax finish...
  7. My Turned Pens #11-20

    Here are my next 10 pens, turned in the few weeks. I'm getting better at checking my sanding carefully so I don't have to go back to coarser grits. Cast a pair of pine cones…the pen shown is supposed to be metallic blue but I used too much dye so it looks black. Lots of voids but they were not...
  8. A Sign of Thanks

    There happens to be a business next door to my house that does a bunch of work with steel sheet goods. They recently received a LARGE shipment from South America on pallets that measured 4×10 feet. They stacked the four massive pallets outside and when I happened to walk by them yesterday, I...
  9. The Holy Cross, diamond willow wooden cross. 26"x12" SundnR

    I saw a little diamond willow cross on a trophy base once so I thought why not make a few. this is the smallest & first finished one, with 2 other larger ones in progress.

  11. Hand Crafted Mallet

    I enjoy making mallets. It's one that I know a lot of wood workers get into. I am not about production, or cranking out numbers to sell. Each of mine are handcrafted typically I try to come up with different handle variants like this one. This also took a weight forward approach to give a dead...
  12. Loaded Dice Mallets

    After the summer mallet swap I decided to make a dice mallet for myself and wound up making a dozen of them, trying out a lot of different woods, and ideas. There is a 2 part blog explaining all of the build details. Since I had plenty of extras, I found some "volunteers" to give them a good...

  14. BEAUTE'S BAGUE / '' beautiful's ring''

    What a tricky contest. Ask woodworkers to make jewelry and then what? It seems like one of those projects that you have to give away. So I did. Now the tricky part…. Explain that you really only made the ring for a contest but you wanted her to have it anyway. Here it is! I made this ring for my...
  15. Acoustic Amplifiers for Christmas

    These acoustic amplifiers were something I wanted to try, Christmas seemed like a good excuse to build something. I picked up a few shorts of hardwood: wenge, walnut, padauk, maple, and oak; and I was off to the races. They didn't turn out exactly like I had first planned them, but I was proud...
  16. Yard Schickt - A Yardstick Puzzle

    Yard Schtickt is a voyage into unknown puzzle box making waters. I just couldn't help but make another recycled yardstick puzzle project. This one has the design so that each side is removable for exploring how it all works! Likely more fun then I should be having. ; ) Fun to learn if...
  17. LxWxH - Vintage Puzzle Upgrade

    Hey Guys, I found another in the files, maybe this one you can make out more detail. This box was a souvenir box from somewhere tropical that has a sliding front panel that unlocks the lid when retracted. I saw an opportunity to build on what was existing. Basically, there is a draw bolt...
