  1. Hair Comb - Cherry and Rosewood

    After a few previous attempts (which can be seen in my earlier projects), I think I've settled on a design that I really like. I decided to forgo the buttons on the grip, in favor of a more sleek, minimalist approach. Higher resolution images can be seen here. In particular, I'm pretty proud...
  2. Matt's Pie Safe - see more pics in comments

    This isn't entirely finished but I'm stuck at Reagan airport for the foreseeable future, so I'll post this unfinished. My pal, Matt, wanted to make a pie safe for his Wife's birthday. I offered whatever help and tools I could provide. Matt doesn't know yet that I absolutely hate oak. Anyhow, it...
  3. Older project pics - small bowls and cups

    Older project pics - small bowls and cups the grey looking wood o one small cup came from a huge oak in my yard. When I was splitting logs I noticed these dark blue areas of the wood, streaks and patches of blue. I saved some and turned it and when polished it looks quite grey and lost most...
  4. Wooden Hair Clips

    First, I started by re-sawing some cutoffs and turning blocks I had around the shop. This was mulberry, walnut, sycamore, pine and some dogwood. I passed each piece through the planer to give it a good gluing surface. Then arranged the pieces and glued them together. After the glue dried I...
  5. I've been working on my wood combs, all the live long day

    After the successful launch of my Etsy store, I've been cranking out the combs left and right. Trying new woods and streamlining my processes has been interesting and quite fun. I've determined that I absolutely love cocobolo. Black & white ebony and claro walnut burl are also extremely nice...
  6. Hair Wash Station

    My wife wanted a station for her salon where she could wash customers hair while standing behind them instead of beside them as well as room for dry towels, shampoo, etc… her's how it turned out. It was bult with birch ply and clear(er) pine. Finished with dark walnut stain and semi-gloss poly...
  7. Hair Comb #2, Cherry & Walnut

    This is my second try at a wooden comb, this time using cherry with walnut. The grain on cherry is tighter and its pores aren't as big, which makes it better suited for running through hair compared to walnut, which I used on my first try. This piece of cherry has a dark mineral streak...
  8. The wooden comb business has been keeping me busy.

    I haven't posted any projects for quite a while, but don't let that lead you to believe I haven't been busy! Between my Etsy store, my .com site, local festivals, and large wholesale orders from a handful of select retailers, I've probably made about a thousand of these things by now. Not even...

  10. White Oak Hair care center

    With a daughter, there was hair dryers and blowers all over the bathroom sink. I hjad seen these in cheap forms and came up with my version that would last a life time. I enjoy working with oak and assembling my projects to where they will last.
  11. The wooden combs that my wife and I make

    Still going strong with the wooden combs! My wife and I have been doing this crazy thing for a couple of years now, and we're loving it. Haven't posted here in a while for lack of larger projects, but I have to throw some love over to LJ's. We've been cranking out other items like razors...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I've been thinking about making a small hairbrush for my 1 year old daughter. About a month ago, right before before bedtime I brushed her hair with my wife's brush and she just sat their in a trance. I've thought about making one ever since, but I'm not sure about the logistics of getting the...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I have a 7 year old Jet bandsaw. I can track the blade pretty well on the upper wheel, but the lower wheel seems to want to keep the blade well toward the front. In fact, the teeth on the 1/2" blades ride off of the tire. The tires are good, so is there any way to to fix the problem...
  14. Blogs
    A case for short hair Hi, all - Though the title of this posting is (mildly) humorous, the content is, unfortunately, not. I work in the chemistry dept at Yale, and overnight we had an undergraduate researcher die in a machine shop accident. Reports so far today suggest that her hair got...
