  8. Assorted bowls and a platter

    1 & 2) Pond Scene. Pine, 3'+ long, 1" high. This piece was roughed out with a chainsaw, then worked with hand tools. The idea came from the placement of a couple of knots in the wood, which became the eyes of the frog. Then the idea of a pond came to me, but I didn't wand the "pond" to just...
  9. Reclaimed Maple Beam Mantle

    Here's a simple reclaimed mantle we put in a historic home in Phoenix. The customer came to the yard and picked out the beam that we cut this from. You'll see the pictures of how we made a french cleat for it in the shop and installed it in their home. This is my favorite way to float smaller...
  10. Word Art Cross

    The cross is made from Red oak with the contrasting word art in purpleheart. The purpleheart cutting is so fragile that I broke the center of the f when cutting. Fortunately I was stack cutting 2 of them so I still had one good one left. Entered this into the Rockler "Adventures in Wood" contest...

The boards were allowed to air dry (the poplar quickly began to change from green shades to light brown) and notches...
  12. Hand Hewn (looking) Garden Bench and Table

    After reading over the rules, I took off the week of the 4th of July and started work on what I thought would be a great project. I was going to use some 120 year old heart pine from my great grandfather's old store and make a coffee table. I worked about 3 or 4 days and then for some reason...

    Garden Bench and Table Construction #2 I forgot to mention on the first part of this blog that I don't have any pictures of construction on the bench. This was due partly to my camera crapping out on me and I really didn't know this thing would turn out as good as it did. After completing the...

    Betty or Veronica? Could never figure out if Archie was cursed or blessed with two lovely ladies competing for his affections. Last night found me in a similar situation.
