  1. 'Sisiutl' picture frame

    The NW Haida people have a myth of 'Sisiutl' a double headed sea monster transforming to human at the bottom of the frame. The final piece has glass held in place with Copper piping and has 2 long locks of my horses hair. It's done out of Oak which I find very hard to manipulate wtih small...
  2. Coastal Plaque, Frog and SeaHawk

    This 15" diameter x 4" deep plaque is carved out of Purpleheart and was a bear to do. The chrome plated sun rays are off set from the bottom of the carving which has a light embedded in it to shine off of the chrome. Embedded in the surface is abalone and copper, traditional material in the...
  3. Happy Sun Jewelry box

    This is the second piece I carved in the Haida style. The box was off the shelf from woodcraft and I embeded some detail inlay along the bottom. Aeromatic cedar has been added inside bottom and woven in the top.
  4. This was my first carving

    I did this 4"x4" HAPPY SUN back in 2001 in Basswood with only xacto blades. It was used for the jewlery box but in relief.

    An old fir telephone pole turned priceless for uncle Dave. This is probably the piece I am most proud of for reasons I am not really sure of. I don't look forward to the day that I will be inheriting this one.
  6. Uncle Dave's Haida inspired replica

  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    For all you Arts and Crafters out there, there is a very fine show at the Dallas Museum of Art called "Gustav Stickley and the American Arts and Crafts Movement" It's there until May. It was more extensive than I imagined it would be and it featured many items that I had never seen before. If...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am having trouble with my Powermatic 14" bandsaw tension. I've owned the saw for about 2 years and it's worked great. Recently the blade became very loose. I could not seem to get it tensioned properly. I tried new blades and so messing with the tension arm and so forth. The sliding bracket...
