  2. Rustic display ladder

    I made this rustic paper birch ladder for my wife to display her fiber art . She had been eyeing all the old wooden ladders at the antique stores I scout for hand tools to restore. I came up with this idea. This is my first green wood project, it was fun and I burnt some calories to make it. All...
  3. Scrapwood Clock

    My wife says I never throw anything away… she's right, of course. Here's something I turned out with a few pieces of pine, purple heart and bloodwood that should, could have been in the scrap pile.
  4. Begging Monkey Automata

    I used an old news paper pattern from 1920's for this. The motion is not as fluid as I would like (the original was designed to be made of paper, where mine is wood). When his tail is pushed down both hands and his head lift up. I also had to enlarge the head as the one in the original pattern...

    Second video making the scales for a father/son knife with a custom mosaic pin and walnut from their family farm: (First video here: )
  6. Dyed Alaskan Birch

    I collected tons of cut Alaskan Birch (a sub species of North American White or Paper Birch) from a new road area near my home in the MatSu Valley. The figure and character of Alaskan Birch depends entirely on where it grows. In the deep swamp where there is little light, the trees grow very...
  7. Colonial Chalk Line Reel

    For the 2018 Layout and Marking Tool Swap, I tried my hand at a colonial style chalk line reel. These chalk lines were used in the 18th century to snap straight lines along timbers being shaped for cabins and ship-building. The head of the reels spins on the handle, allowing it to be quickly...
  8. brass and curly maple handle

    I recently got a straight blade sloyd knife blank from pinewood forge and just had a chance to put a handle on it today. I modeled the handle after the spyderco puukko which I use as a larger carving knife occasionally and know is comfortable. I used a scrap of curly maple I had around and a...
  9. eagle head from deer antler

    Just a small quick carving. Carved from the butt of a blacktail deer antler mounted on a cedar base . The piece of antler is about as big around as your thumb. When I'm getting ready to start bigger projects,sometimes I just like doing something small just to get the juices flowing.
  10. green cherry mushroom

    this was my first green turning. It is about 15 inches tall and 6 inches round. I had water running off my tools and me. At first when I would stop the lathe the water would run down the side of the wood and i thought I had a pipe leaking over the lathe. The guy that cut down the tree said it...
  11. Large Mallet

    I needed a large mallet to hit the back of my axe in order to split some logs for spoon carving, so I made this out of English beech. It is 21" long. The head is 4 1/2" in diameter and 8" long. No idea of the weight as it is too heavy for our kitchen scales. The shaping was done with my...
  12. Baking Soda Blasted Wood Turning

    I took a very ordinary wood turning and I turned it into a very beautiful piece by the process of baking soda blasting. This is one experment that really producted results for me.
  13. Hay Fork

    Here is a hay fork I made last spring from a fresh red oak log. The stock was riven from a 6 foot section that was quartered, then split to 8 billets. Each billet was then shaped on a shaving horse and after shaping I ripped out each of the tines from the fat end. Red oak dowels were riven and...
  14. Peel

    This sculpture was made with American Ash. It was taken right from the log and long grain was selected for steam bending. I used a modified strap to bend from the center of a piece of stock. No this piece is not a bent lamination, it is solid ash, steamed and bent on a form. It is free-standing...
  15. Make a Mallet with 3 Tool

    Friends: I've been trying to make things with an ultra-minimal toolkit recently. You might remember the little bench I did with just a saw, a hatchet, and a drill. Well, there were times during that build that I needed to hit the back of the hatchet (much like you would tap a chisel). I used...
  16. Wide Mouth Four Footed Erlenmeyer Hackberry Flask

    Here is another piece in the Footed Vessel Series (formerly known as Three Legged Dog Series). I recently found a nice piece of freshly cut hackberry. It isn't the flashiest wood but it is a pleasure to cut when green. I processed the wood into 9 blanks and this is the first I've turned from it...
  17. Kuksa - Scandinavian drinking cups

    Kuksa drinking cups made from birch. I couldn't find a birch burl which they say can last a lifetime of heavy use. I made mine from a green birch log. They were carved using a sloyd knife, kuksa hook knife and gouges. The cups were boiled prior to finishing and hold water great. Finish is a...
  18. Northwest Coast Elbow Adze

    The gutter blade was purchased from Kestrel Tools in northwest Washington. They provide excellent instructions on how to make your own handle and fasten the blade with tarred seine fishing twine. I made my handle from an 8/4 rift sawn hickory board. The head was reinforced with an epoxied hard...
  19. cherry entertainment cabinet

    This the the completed version of the cabinet I posted earlier. It has been one of those projects that try men's souls. All went well till I applied the finish, per the manufactures instructions and it came out terrible. I ended up stripping all the finish off and starting over, this time wiping...
